For Justin Bieber’s 17th birthday, he asking all of the “Beliebers” to celebrate his birthday by donating to the Justin Bieber’s Charity: Water page. Justin is asked that his friends, fans and followers donate $17 to charity: water. The money will be used to build clean water projects in developing countries.
“Together, we’ve made a big difference for many causes,” Justin wrote on the page. “Did you know that about 4,500 kids die each day from waterborne disease? By building clean water projects for villages that need them, we can prevent this! I want to make my birthday matter this year — let’s make it so more kids can grow up to have a 17th birthday like me. Join me to make a change.”
Of course, Justin Bieber isn’t the only celebrity working to provide clean water to those who need it. For Adam Lambert’s 29th birthday, he set out to raise $290,000 through his own charity: water page. He did that and more. He extended the challenge to his fans, and as of this writing, his page has received $295,500 in donations.
Alyssa Milano’s mycharity: water campaigns raised over $92,000 for her 37th birthday in 2009, and another $39,551 for her 38th birthday at the end of 2010.
