Adam Braun, founder of Pencils of Promise, tells HollywoodLife.com exclusively that giving back ‘is really important’ to Justin.
Justin Bieber may have a crazy life constantly touring and traveling to promote his music, but he still makes time to give back. The 17-year-old singer plans to travel in 2012 to build a school for the non-profit organization Pencils of Promise.
“Justin’s going to come in 2012,” founder Adam Braun told HollywoodLife.com exclusively at an event for the charity in NYC Nov. 17. “We are going to figure it out, but he wants to help build a school.”
Adam added: “It’s really important to him.”
Justin’s girlfriend Selena Gomez might even join in. “It would be totally up to her,” said Adam.
“Since the earliest days, Justin has found ways to give back,” continued Adam. “It sounds crazy, but one time he had a Facebook account and he would literally post Pencils of Promise on my Facebook account.”
Adam’s work with Pencils of Promises has come a long way. “It’s incredibly exciting,” he shared. “It’s way more than I could have ever expected. I started with literally $25.00 in a bank account when I was 24 years old.”
“I leave in two weeks to go to Laos and Sophia Bush and several others are coming,” said Adam.
