Justin Bieber is the most charitable teen we know! The Biebs has announced his Believe Charity Drive, where the "U Smile" singer will donate a portion of the proceeds from sales of his Christmas album, Under the Mistletoe, to charity. But it doesn't start and end there.
The Biebs would like his fans to do the same, listing seven specific charitable organizations they can donate to. The charities are as follows: Make-A-Wish Foundation, Pencils of Promise, Musicians on Call, Project Medishare for Haiti, City of Hope, the Boys & Girls Clubs of America and the GRAMMY Foundation. He has a goal of raising millions in donations to support these organizations.
"I am launching the Believe Charity Drive because I know firsthand that if you believe in your dreams, everything is possible," The Biebs said in a statement. "The Believe Charity Drive directly benefits charities that are making a difference in the world. You can ... donate as little as one dollar, or even donate your time, because everything will make a difference. Please join me in our quest to raise millions of dollars by the release of my new 2012 album, Believe. I know that with your help we can make a change."
The Biebs chose these charities since they emphasize "education, youth well-being and music."
Contributions will also be made to additional local charities in certain international markets.
Fans can go here to make donations.
