Tue, July 29, 2014 10:35am EDT by 11 Comments

Justin was given the ‘Champ of Charity’ award at the Young Hollywood Awards on July 27, and he used the opportunity to grant Make-A-Wish recipient Grace Kesablak her biggest wish. Watch HollywoodLife.com’s EXCLUSIVE interview with Justin to see what he did for little Grace and find out why he loves giving back!  

Justin Bieber may not have the best reputation, but he definitely has an enormous heart! The 20-year-old heartthrob earned the “Champ of Charity” award at the Young Hollywood Awards on July 27, but he promptly gave the trophy to Make-A-Wish recipient Grace Kesablak, and made her dream of becoming a “celebrity” come true!

Justin Bieber At YHAs

Before going inside The Wiltern Theater in Los Angeles, where the 2014 YHAs took place, Justin spoke one-on-one with HollywoodLife.com’s Katrina Mitzeliotis. During our exclusive interview, Justin talked openly about his charity work and why he felt the need to make Grace’s wish come true!

“She’s incredibly beautiful. She’s actually being a little shy right now. I’m glad she’s here,” Justin told HollywoodLife.com as he looked down on Grace, whose wish was “to be a celebrity.”

So what did Justin have planned for the 10-year-old, who is battling cancer?

“I think what we’re going to do is bring you on stage,” the “As Long As You Love Me” singer told her. “The whole world is going to see this.”

Grace giggled in excitement, and Justin added, “Nothing makes me more happy. I don’t do this for any other reason other than to just put a smile on people’s faces and spread peace into the world.”

Justin Bieber Wins ‘Champ For Charity’ Award

Once inside, Australian pop star Cody Simpson presented the “Champ For Charity” award to Justin while a video montage highlighting his work with the Make-A-Wish foundation played.

“Someone asked me backstage and they said, ‘What’s it like to give?'” Justin said in his speech. “And I didn’t really know what to say, but now I know it’s so much better than receiving.”

“This is Grace’s award. Grace, can you come up here please?”

When Grace came to the stage, Justin handed off the award to her and lifted her up as the crowd cheered! (So sweet.)

Justin left after receiving the award, but Grace was later seen caressing her trophy happily inside the theater, according to the Los Angeles Times.

What do YOU think, HollywoodLifers? Is Justin the sweetest celebrity ever? Are you glad that he was honored for his charity work? Tell us how you feel!

Justin’s ideas are totally unique — no Hollywood celebrity has ever given away their awards!
.
Last year in Guatemala, Justin build the school for the natives in the jungle with his bare hands and then left his shoes behind for the poor who don’t have shoes!
.
So Justin is a pioneer of goodness and kindness! Nobody can even dream of such things let alone be prepared to do them! An amazing golden heart !!!

It’s impossible that Justin is doing this for PR because that’s not how Make-A-Wish works!
.
Justin does not get to choose, it’s the terminally ill kids who decide what to do, whether they go to Disneyland or which celebrity they choose to see, it’s up to THEM to decide!
.
So the fact that most are choosing Justin says volumes about him! Someone who’s going to die tomorrow doesn’t really want a silly ride in Disneyland, they want a loving hug from the Jesus of today!

Grace was granted her wish to be a celebrity for a day, and meet her idle Justin Bieber.
Justin took Grace as his date, and was given the award by the Make-A-Wish Foundation and it was presented on the YHA’s. He had nothing to do with PR other than showing up to receive the award. He handed the award to the little girl and said she’s the real winner; she was the center of attention. Other people have done good deeds as well, but not to show up for a charity award would have been disrespectful. Him showing up: it gives awareness that the charity foundation
is there and he also mentioned Pencils For Promises. Great job Justin!!!
