Justin Bieber is reaching out to fans and fellow celebrities to help raise funds for three orphaned and paralyzed children in Texas. How sweet!
Justin Bieber‘s Twitter following of 11 million makes him the perfect celeb to bring attention to a family in need — and that’s just what he’s doing! Justin started the ‘Show Your Hearts’ campaign after a car accident earlier this month left the Berry children of West Texas orphaned and paralyzed.
Celebrities like Kim Kardashian and Britney Spears are taking to Twitter to promote the campaign by posting their heart-hand sign or using the hashtag #showyourhearts.
Justin asks people to donate money through the website or by texting BERRY to 85944 and it appears they’re listening! “seeing you all come together for #showyourhearts is pretty amazing,” Justin tweeted July 27, “super grateful and proud of my fans.”
The money raised through the ‘Show Your Hearts’ campaign goes towards the Joshua and Robin Berry Children’s Trust, named after the Berry parents who were killed in the crash.
A member of Justin’s management team is a relative of Simone Berry, the children’s aunt and new guardian, along with their uncle Matt Berry, according to the Huffington Post.
“Justin Bieber found out about it and he reached out to the family and they agreed to his amazing gesture of goodwill,” Berry family friend Allen Deutsch told the Huffington Post.
The youngest of the three Berry children, Willa, 6, has been released from the hospital with a broken arm and leg. Her two older brothers, Peter, 9, and Aaron, 8, are paralyzed from the waist down and currently undergoing rehab.
