Justin Bieber‘s 17th birthday is tomorrow, but it sounds like the superstar is already maturing. Instead of presents, Justin wants his fans to donate to a charity on his behalf!
Justin is asking Beliebers to donate to Charity: Water for his 17th birthday on Tuesday in order to raise $17,000 for clean water in developing nations, PopEater reports.
“Together, we’ve made a big difference for many causes,” The Biebs writes on his Charity: Water 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,” he adds. “Join me to make a change.”
And since it’s his 17th birthday, Justin is asking fans donate $17 dollars.
“I’m really so grateful for my family, friends and fans — and I believe we can do something big to help bring clean water to people in need,” he writes. “Even if you don’t have $17 to give I just ask you to go out in your community and try and make a positive difference. Even the smallest act of kindness can go a long way. Thanks and God Bless! #makeachange.”
