You’d think that an 18-year-old boy with more money than he could imagine would waste it all on frivolous things, right? Wrong. Justin Bieber is always coming up with ways to use his fame and fortune for the greater good. Bieber is constantly donating to multiple charities, and whether it is visiting Children’s Hospitals, auctioning off his hair, or creating the Believe Charity Drive, Bieber is always doing his best to give back, or as he says ‘pay it forward’.

A portion of the proceeds from his Christmas album, “Under The Mistletoe” as well as his latest album “Believe” went towards his Believe Charity Drive, which benefits organizations such as, Project Medishare for Haiti, City of Hope, Make-A-Wish Foundation, Boys and Girls Clubs of America, Musicians on Call, the GRAMMY Foundation and Pencils of Promise. Pencils of Promise is an organization that is near and dear to Bieber’s heart, so he jumps at any opportunity to help out. Bieber’s first world tour, the My World Tour, gave $1 from every ticket sold to the organization, and he continues to do so with every ticket sold on his current Believe Tour.

Bieber’s latest deed of kindness arose after Hurricane Sandy struck the East Coast. After the destruction of Hurricane Sandy, numerous celebrities, including Bieber, came forward to donate to Hurricane Sandy Relief. Not even a week after Hurricane Sandy hit, Bieber was making his way to the Tri-State Area on his Believe Tour and on November 8th, the day before his New Jersey show, he shared an announcement on Twitter:

After the show the next day, Bieber sent out another tweet, which read:

Being lucky enough to have attended this show, I can definitely agree with Bieber when he says that it was a GREAT SHOW. The energy in the arena was indescribable, and as for Bieber’s performance, well let’s just say it was nothing short of impeccable. Apart from the flawless performance, one of the most amazing parts of the night was looking around at the packed arena and knowing that $1 from every single person’s ticket in that room would go towards helping those affected by Hurricane Sandy’s destruction. Although the night was all about having a good time, and enjoying the show, it was also about giving back, which Bieber gave us all the opportunity to do, so thanks Biebs!

Last night Bieber had a show at the Barclay’s Center in Brooklyn, and the tickets from the show, as well as the tickets from the two sold out Madison Square Garden shows on November 28 and November 29th will also go to Hurricane Sandy Relief! Keep up the good work Biebs!

Are you going to one of the upcoming Believe shows?? Lets us know in the comments below!
