Justin Bieber Auctions Off Signed Guitar to Benefit Canadian Food Bank
Above all else, Justin Bieber loves to remember where he came from. Just recently, the 17-year-old ‘Baby’ singer donated an autographed guitar to be put up for an auction that will benefit a Canadian food bank.
The Biebs, who calls Stratford, Ontario home, gave up his rights to the stringed instrument when he signed it and handed it over to Kenny Boyce, who manages film and special events at the city hall in Winnipeg. According to the Hollywood Reporter, Bieber has ties to the city given that he lived there temporarily with his father, so his contribution is, in a sense, finding its way home.
The guitar is in an open auction on eBay and had been bid up to roughly $2000 Canadian at press time. The auction explains, “This acoustic Taylor guitar is ready to play and features Justin’s autograph, which he personally signed while in Winnipeg, on the lower body of the instrument.”
Once it sells, the money will go directly to the Winnipeg Harvest Food Bank, which certainly needs the dough more than the Biebs. Just a few weeks ago, Bieber handed over a hefty $10,000 to his local Stratford food collectors, and then reached out to his Twitter followers to accumulate another $5,000 donation.
With a new holiday album and a knack for being giving, we’d say the Biebs is more in the Christmas spirit than anyone.
