Justin Bieber has a Valentine’s Day treat planned for all his fans. He is releasing a special edition of his SOMEDAY fragrance, complete with Valentine’s colors and a heart lock and key. The best part, though? All the profits from this special edition will go to charity ! They will be split between Pencils of Promise and the Make A Wish Foundation.
Are you planning to buy the new redesigned bottle?

Justin left a group of children awestruck as he handed out produce to his peers.
Dressed casually in a hooded top and loose jeans he happily posed for pictures with his admirers, who were festively dressed in Father Christmas hats and had their camera phones at the ready.
Justin Bieber is a man of his word.
On the Ellen Degeneres Show back in November, the teen phenom declared he would match a $100,000 commitment by Target to aid impoverished Whitney Elementary School in Las Vegas. On Dec. 16, he made good on that promise, personally delivering a check for $100,000 and performing a mini-private concert (set to kick off at 2 p.m. PST) for students at the school, the vast majority hailing from low income families.
The money, which comes from Bieber’s personal funds and not his philanthropic organization Believe, will go towards providing needy students’ families with food, clothes and money for utility bills. Whitney Elementary also provides assistance to its 610 students, many of them homeless, by providing a food pantry, clothes closet, free haircuts and literacy training on campus.
An Ontario food bank is $15,000 richer thanks to Justin Bieber and one well-placed mobile Tweet.
Justin recently arranged for a hefty donation to the House of Blessing food bank in Stratford, Ont. during an interview on the Access Hollywood. Host Billy Bush said he would donate $5,000 to the charity of Bieber’s choice on condition that he call on his 13.8 million Twitter followers to also follow Bush.
All this follows a separate $10,000 donation Justin made to the food bank a few weeks ago, reported CTV.ca.
“It’s really exciting to hear Justin’s thinking of Stratford again,” said operations co-ordinator Laura Davies.
The food bank helps about 5,000 people per year around Stratford, a small town in southwestern Ontario where Bieber lived before hitting it big. Organizers expect that will go much easier because of the “Bieber bump.”
Justin Bieber is a “good man,” Bush said later on Twitter. “Really solid, funny and shook every hand in the room. Class act.”
Justin tweeted on October 30:
“It wasnt 2 long ago that my mom and me got food from this food bank 4 our christmas. Dont ever forget where u come from”
Justin Bieber will donate a portion of his money from his new “My Worlds Acoustic” album to Children’s Miracle Network. The album will hit Walmart stores and Walmart.com on Nov. 26 (Black Friday).
Justin said: “I am in the position to give back thanks to my fans and God, I wrote a song “Pray” thinking I wanted to help others and I feel like I have a responsibility to do so. What is the point of doing all this if you can’t make a difference in others’ lives? This album is a gift to my fans and the money raised from it allows us all to help out.”
Justin Bieber initially formed a relationship with Children’s Miracle Network in September 2009 when he performed at the Hard Rock Café in New York City.
The President of Children’s Miracle Network, Scott Burt said: “Justin’s generous contributions from his new album will make a meaningful difference in saving lives of the children treated at our children’s hospitals. As an organization that donates the most money of any charity to children’s hospitals around the country, we are extremely grateful for his support. With the proceeds, we will be able to create even more miracles for children.”
