Justin Bieber Donates His Birthday for Clean Drinking Water
Justin Bieber recently turned his 17th birthday (March 1) into a fundraiser, by putting a call out to his fans asking for donations to charity: water, an organization that provides clean drinking water to developing nations. Justin’s fundraising goal was $17,000, but with the help of young fans everywhere, they were able to raise over $45,000 (and still counting).

Donating your birthday to charity is getting very hip! We wrote not too long ago about Will and Jada Smith donating their birthdays to Charity:Water, and it’s great to see Justin Bieber following suit! My little sister donated her birthday this year, and I was so proud of her! Have you guys donated your birthdays to a charity before? I’d love to hear how it went in the comments!
