One Direction used their enormous fangirl status to raise $780,000 for charity.

According to Forbes, the British boy band launched the campaign on charity startup Prizeo, which partners with top celebs to raffle off one-of-a-kind experiences.

The six-week campaign closed with $784,345 in donations on August 20th, benefiting Trekstock, a London-based nonprofit that supports cancer research.

The winner of the raffle won a five-star trip to London, including an evening with the One Direction's Liam Payne and Harry Styles.

Not only did the campaign gather a hefty sum of money, it landed 240,000 shares on Twitter and Facebook and 446,000 views on the YouTube video below.

Other celebs who've partnered with Prizeo include Khloe Kardashian, Muhammad Ali and rapper Big Sean.
