Justin Bieber Makes Plans to Donate $100,000 to Elementary School
Justin Bieber appeared on 'Ellen' on Tuesday to pimp out his new holiday album, 'Under the Mistletoe,' but while he was there decided to do a little Santa-inspired giving. The 17-year-old heartthrob promised a Las Vegas elementary school that he'd be sending a $100,000 check their way in addition to another special treat.
Most of Whitney Elementary School watched via satellite as Bieber created a drumroll in the 'Ellen' studios, before making a huge announcement that seemed to pop right off the top of his head. "My idea is that I promise I'm going to talk to some of my friends, and I want to match the other $100,000," the Biebs told his audience, who then erupted in cheers.
But that's not all. The 'Baby' singer also swore to the group of kids that he'd be stopping by their school to meet all of them. "In December, since I’m putting out a Christmas album, what better than to come to your school and perform for you guys some acoustic songs?"
Naturally, the kiddos were excited, even those who seemed confused by the situation and why this Bieber fella is so important. We have to give it to Justin, though -- in a world where people struggle to make their bills, he's constantly forking over the cash to help people who have helped him become the world's biggest teen icon. In the giving season, his donation couldn't be more appropriate.
