Coldplay have never been shy about their intentions of fixing those who need a little help, but now the band is putting their money where their mouth is.

According to Billboard, Coldplay have donated £10,000 or $17,000 to a fund-raiser organized by a terminally ill British fan named Jody Duff who is suffering from a motor neurone disease — a progressive neurological condition — that has confined him to a wheelchair.

Duff has been raising money MNDA (Motor Neurone Disease Association UK), looking for a total of £25,000 (over $42,000). But it wasn’t until the fundraiser caught the attention of Coldplay that the long-time fan’s fundraiser got a big boost.

Since the donation, the band has also encouraged others to give, tweeting a message to fans asking for their help.
