For the release of his new single INTENTIONS, Justin Bieber has partnered up with the LA-based nonprofit organization Alexandria House, which provides safe and supportive housing for women and children who are transitioning from emergency shelter to economic stability and permanent housing.
Justin’s new video INTENTIONS tells the stories of three “graduates” of Alexandria’s transitional housing program. To honor these incredible women, and the untold stories of so many who show such strength and resilience in difficult times, an INTENTIONS Fund has been established in the amount of $200,000 to support the goals and dreams of the families Alexandria House supports.
Philanthropic work has been a core value for Justin Bieber since the start of his career: Justin holds the record for most wishes granted by a musical artist via the Make-a-Wish Foundation, with more than 350 wishes granted for terminally ill children.
Justin has donated millions of dollars to Pencils of Promise, providing access to quality education for thousands of students around the world.
In 2010, 2012, and 2016, he donated $1 for every ticket sold of his world tours ("My World," "Believe," and "Purpose," respectively) to the organization.
In December 2019, Justin and Hailey Bieber curated an art auction benefiting two organizations helping families in need – LIFT Los Angeles and Inner-City Arts. LIFT is a national nonprofit organization working to break the cycle of poverty for families. Inner-City Arts uses arts education to positively affect the lives of underserved children.
In 2019, Justin Bieber teamed up with Schmidt's and Active Minds to change the conversation around mental health. $50,000 was donated to Active Minds to support their work on college campuses training students in life-saving V-A-R (validate, appreciate, refer) skills.
Justin recently committed $1 per ticket sold of his Changes tour to the Bieber Foundation, which will support mental health and wellness programs.
