They're boy-banders with hearts.
After it was revealed that Arapahoe High School shooting victim Claire Davis was a fan of the band One Direction, supporters began a campaign for the musicians to visit her in the hospital.
The band responded with a video, which they sent directly to the family. (Davis's boyfriend later posted it to YouTube.)
"We've heard you're a big fan and we just wanted to show you some love," band member Liam Payne, who was flanked by his fellow musicians, said. "What's happened to you is absolutely terrible, something we can't bear thinking about, so we just wanted to share some love with you."
"All our prayers are with you and your family, hope you get well soon," he continued. "Lots of love."
After his speech, Louis Tomlinson blew her a kiss.
Davis, 17, was critically wounded in the shooting at her high school, and is in a coma at Littleton Adventist Hospital.
On Dec. 15, her family updated her status on Facebook, saying that she "remains in critical condition. She is stable, but in a coma."
In addition to the support from One Direction, a Dec. 17 post on the Facebook page revealed that nearly 100 cards had arrived for the Davis family.
