with kaeden anders, a fan who has cerebral palsy
Justin Bieber already donates $1 of every ticket sold on his Believe tour to charity, and now, he's decided to direct the proceeds from four New York-area shows to the ongoing recovery effort in the wake of Hurricane Sandy.
"After talking with the team, I am proud to announce that for the four NYC area shows — the Jersey show, the Brooklyn show and two [Madison Square Garden shows], we are going to donate $1 to Hurricane Sandy relief," Bieber wrote on his Facebook page Thursday (November 8). "Thanks for helping us. #GIVEBACK."
Those shows include a November 9 concert at the IZOD Center in East Rutherford, New Jersey, a November 12 show at Brooklyn's Barclay's Center and his two-night stand at the Garden, set for November 28-29.
A Maryland teen is probably the best big brother a kid could hope for. Knowing that his 12-year-old sister is a huge fan of Justin Bieber, Zachary Berkow decided to take action.
Lily Berkow has Cerebral Palsy, but that doesn’t stop her from riding a bike, having fun with her brother, and rocking out to the “Biebs”. So when her parents got her tickets to Monday’s Justin Bieber concert, Zachary made a YouTube video showing just how much Justin’s song “Believe” means to his little sister.
"I want to see if she can meet Justin Bieber,” said Zachary. “There's probably trillions of little girls who also want to meet him, but Lily is just so special in her own way."
ABC7 saw Zachary’s video and reached out to Bieber’s people. Come Monday night, Lily will meet her idol face-to-face, a dream come true for a very special girl.
“I think it's pretty cool as an inspiration to other people,” said Zachary. “No matter what's wrong with you, no matter what your disabilities are, no matter where you are in your life you can still do what you want.
