Justin Bieber Urges Fans to 'Show Your Hearts' Today
If you follow Justin Bieber on Facebook or Twitter, you may have seen him tweet and post to fans to "show your hearts." Well, while the 17-year-old is always encouraging love and support, he's doing it for a very special cause today.
The pop star is asking Beliebers to come together on Wednesday, July 27, to help raise funds and awareness for Joshua and Robin Berry Children's Trust. Over July 4th weekend, the Berry family of Houston, Texas were involved in a tragic car accident that killed both parents and left two of their three children paralyzed below the waist. They are currently being treated at a local hospital.
"[On July 27] we all change our profile pics on twitter and facebook and make a donation to #SHOWYOURHEARTS," Justin tweeted. "Spread the word. #makeachange."
As you can imagine, the two boys, ages 9 and 8, and their sister face a tough road ahead, which is why Justin and celebrities like Britney Spears, Ryan Seacrest and the Kardashians are joining forces to launch the Show Your Hearts Fundraising Campaign.
The stars are asking fans to support the cause by donating $5 or more to the Joshua and Robin Berry Children's Trust or by changing your Facebook and/or Twitter profile pic to the Show Your Heart art. Beliebers can also post a photo of themselves making the heart sign with their hands and posting the message "show your heart."
