Bieber gives back
Teens don't always get the best rap, but Bieber seems determined to change that through this extensive charity work. The deeply religious star often performs for good causes or donates large chunks of change to those in need ($500K alone to the Children's Wish Foundation of Canada last Christmas). A lock of his hair was auctioned off for a whopping $40,000 and the proceeds from his shoes and other paraphernalia have also been given to charity. Bieber even helped put the spotlight on organ donation recently when he sent a message to his 17 million Twitter followers urging them to become donors at the request of a 20-year-old Ottawa in need of a double lung transplant. More than 2,000 signed up right away, garnering the attention of Ellen DeGeneres, who then welcomed Helene Campbell onto her show via Skype.
