Tween pop sensation Justin Bieber has given teenage girls another reason to swoon - he has now pledged his support to help sick New Zealand children.
Bieber today announced that the Starship Foundation would be one of the 20 charities from around the world included in his "Believe Charity Drive" campaign which sets a goal to raise millions of dollars for the causes.
Bieber said he was launching the campaign because he knows first hand "that if you believe in your dreams, everything is possible"
Starship Foundation chief executive Brad Clark said they were "so grateful" for his support and encouraged fans to support the "Believe Charity Drive".
"The proceeds will go towards the rebuild of Starship Hospital's Neuroservices and Medical Specialties Wards, which treats conditions including neurological disorders, brain tumours, metabolic and genetic disorders, head trauma and suspected child abuse injuries, respiratory illnesses and infectious diseases," Mr Clark said.
Fans can go to justinbiebermusic.com/believecharity and donate as little as $1, or donate their time. "Everything will make a difference," Bieber said.
Meanwhile, Bieber has been dogged with allegations that he impregnated a 20-year-old woman after a brief encounter with her backstage after one of his concerts.
A representative for Bieber said the woman's claims were "malicious, defamatory, and demonstrably false".
