Justin may not have the best reputation in Hollywood but he certainly has one of the biggest hearts! The generous and giving pop star was honored with the Champ of Charity Award at the 2014 Young Hollywood Awards in Los Angeles on July 27 — but instead of keeping the trophy for himself, he gave it away to Make-A-Wish recipient Grace Kesablak, a 10-year-old girl who is battling cancer. So sweet!
Say what you will about Justin Bieber, 20, but he’s definitely a champion when it comes to helping children! Justin made little Grace Kesablak‘s dreams come true when he brought her on stage to accept the Champ of Charity Award with him at Los Angeles’ Wiltern Theatre on July 27. It was such a special moment, and we can’t think of two more deserving recipients!
Justin Bieber Wins Champ Of Charity Award At The 2014 Young Hollywood Awards
Justin, 20, may be one of the biggest celebs in the world, but it was little Grace who totally stole the show at this year’s Young Hollywood Awards! Justin, who has granted a record-breaking 200+ wishes through the Make-A-Wish foundation, showed his dedication to others once again by selflessly inviting Grace on stage to share in his special moment!
After explaining that he gives back to sick children not for the positive press, but because he genuinely cares, the Biebs announced that he was giving his award to Grace. He helped her on stage and gave her a big kiss and hug before carrying her off stage. She looked so overcome with joy to be by her favorite singer’s side as the entire crowd cheered for her.
HollywoodLife.com was on hand to witness the touching moment, and it definitely brought tears to our eyes!
Justin Bieber Joins #CardsForDanny Campaign To Help Boy With Cancer
Justin’s charity work is never done! He also took time out to wish a 6-year-old Massachusetts boy who is suffering from an incurable brain tumor a very special happy birthday on July 25.
All Danny Nickerson wanted for his 6th birthday were cards from strangers around the world, but we’re sure he never dreamed of hearing from a huge pop star like Justin Bieber! The singer made sure Danny felt special on his big day by Instagramming a photo of the little boy with the words, “HAPPY BIRTHDAY DANNY! MUCH LOVE, JUSTIN BIEBER” written across it. He captioned the pic: “#happybirthdaydanny stay strong”.
Justin is always thinking of those less fortunate than himself, which is why we think he’s the perfect choice for the Champ of Charity Award!
