Many celebrities always find time to do so much needed charity work as their way of giving back. Justin Bieber has been given a large amount of praise for breaking a charity record with the Make-A-Wish foundation.
Justin Bieber has become the very first artist to grant 200 wishes to children with life-threatening illnesses.
The latest wish that Bieber granted was before the final date on his US “Believe” tour at the Atlanta Philips Arena. He spent time with an eight-year-old girl named Annalysha backstage and gave her VIP treatment.
David Williams, who is president and CEO of the Make-A-Wish America, said: “Despite his relentless schedule, Justin has been genuinely committed to granting wishes since the very beginning and a strong supporter of Make-A-Wish. Justin understands the impact on a child of a wish-come-true and how it can create positive changes in their outlook, help them feel better, and even influence their health.”
On Twitter, the Make-A-Wish foundation was mentioned on Justin Bieber’s Twitter: ” @MakeAWish honored yesterday. one of the best moments I’ve ever had. Thank u. looking forward to doing more together. Thanks”
Bieber has been involved with the Make-A-Wish foundation since 2009 in Los Angeles. He has make it his mission to grant a wish at every tour stop he has made. He poses for photographers, signs autographs for the fans, and provides prime seating at his concerts.
The 19-year-old “Baby” singer has been dealing with his fair share of negative press in the past few months.
It includes the allegations that he has spit on his fans and getting into some nightclub brawls as well.
That aside, at least he cares about helping sick children.
