Bieber Fever Collects 21,000 Cans of Soup for Food Bank
Beliebers are just as generous as they are passionate about Justin Bieber.
Justin's currently on tour playing shows in his home country, and a Canadian radio station offered Bieb's biggest fans the chance to meet him and get their hands on tickets to his concert. All they needed to do was collect the most cans and packs of soup to be later donated to the Saskatoon Food Bank.
The winning girls, Kelsey Salzsauler and Kayla Findlay, collected 2,507 cans and packs. Altogether, C95's "Feed it to Bieber" contest brought in more than 21,000 items that would help feed those struggling in the community.
The morning show's co-host Ramblin' Dave Scharf notes, "Twenty-one thousand cans of soup later, you're just amazed at how much a part of the community C95 is, and how much our listeners are all kind of part of the same group and on the same team. It was a lot of fun."
He continues to explain that the winners "just worked their behinds off and went door-to-door and asked for soup and/or money, and what money they got, they bought soup."
The second place winner, Cindy Madland, collected over 2,200 cans of soup and scored second row tickets.
Justin showed his appreciation for everyone who participated in the food drive by tweeting, "Greatest fans in the world! helping make a difference in others lives!! so proud!"
Props to this radio station for using Bieber Fever to help others!
