Danke, euch allen

Hello,

I don't understand why it is allen and not alle in the sentence above. And like when is "allen" used? I could not find the word in the Duolingo online dictionary..

Please explain simply..

Thank you

Just like "danke dir" or "danke Ihnen", the verb "danken" takes dative case, so "Ich danke allen, die mir geholfen haben" = I thank all that have helped me.
