JUSTIN BIEBER is doing his charitable share to boost organ donor registrations in Ontario by using his immense popularity to urge fans and followers to support organ and blood donation in Canada.
Way to go, Justin!
A fan pleaded with the “Baby” singer to help spread the word about savings lives through organ donation in his native Canada, and Justin obliged with a shoutout to his 16.7 million followers. The impact, to say the least…was huge!
“Hey @justinbieber! I BELIEB you should use that Canadian voice of yours and help save lives like mine #beanorgandonor beadonor.ca #giveblood”.”
Helene Campbell, using the handle @alungstory tweeted Justin last week.
And Justin immediately agreed to help Campbell, who herself is awaiting a lung transplant:
“i got the word….you have amazing strength. i got u. #BeAnOrganDonor.”
Justin sent back, and followed this tweet up with:
“help spread the word for @alungstory http://www.alungstory.ca/ #BeAnOrganDonor”
“and @alungstory NEVER SAY NEVER”.
Thanks to Justin Bieber, the Ontario-based Trillium Gift of Life Network saw donations rise to 1,200 people, more than four times the amount the network usually receives. And all of these registrations will eventually help save the lives of over 1,500 people in Ontario currently waiting for an organ transplant.
After Campbell thanked the Bieb for having helped spur this rise in future donations, Justin humbly responded with:
“glad to be able to help. best part of what i do.”
Don’t you just love this kid!
And while we’re at it, don’t we know other celebrities who have as many Twitter followers as Justin Bieber? Wonder if they can take a few seconds out of their day to use their popularity to help save lives instead of send useless and inane updates…
