Justin Bieber Giveback Campaign Aims To Raise $1m for Typhoon Yolanda Relief Efforts

by

Philippines: Justin Bieber has launched an online campaign, #GiveBackPhillipines, to raise $1m for the Typhoon Yolanda relief campaign.

Bieber, who is currently on tour in Australia, has one of the world’s largest online fan communities, including 47m Likes on Facebook and Twitter. The 19yr old singer has now launched a campaign, called #givebackphilippines, asking his fans to contribute towards the relief effort required because of the huge damage caused by Typhoon Yolanda on November 8th.

The Justin Bieber Giveback campaign was launched using the website, www.prizeo.com, which enables celebrities to raise money for charity by offering exclusive prizes and inviting fans to donate in order to be entered in to a prize draw. On the site, Justin explains how the competition will work, “For just a tiny donation to the relief effort, you’ll be automatically entered for a chance to hang out with me in the studio early next year and watch me record some new music. I’ll fly you and a friend over to join me in LA from wherever you are in the world. It’s gonna be awesome.” Justin, who admits he has never done anything like this before, continues, “Not only that, but at different donation levels you’ll receive guaranteed rewards, as well as more chances to win the grand prize”.

Later, on his Facebook, Justin posted another message and a video of himself telling fans about the competition. “I’m launching a very special campaign for the Typhoon Haiyan relief efforts.. help me give back to the Philippines and you’ll be entered for a chance to hang out with me in the studio”. Depending on the amount they donate fans also get a chance to win prices ranging from a campaign bracelet, an exclusive tshirt and signed photos.
