Justin Bieber Launches Haiti Earthquake Fundraiser: Watch

In hopes of providing additional assistance to the people of Haiti after the country suffered a devastating earthquake earlier this month, Justin Bieber just launched a fundraiser.

In association with Proplr and Project Medishare, a non-profit organization that provides human, technical and medical resources on the ground in Haiti, the 27-year-old superstar singer/songwriter is offering a trip for two to Vegas including flights, hotel accommodations, tickets to his concert at the T-Mobile Arena and a meet-and-greet experience. As part of the Haiti relief fundraiser benefitting the country’s August 14, 7.2 earthquake (that left 2,000+ people dead and 12,000+ in need of medical assistance,) Justin also announced an original art auction and an exclusive New York event during the week of September 12.

Taking to Twitter, the Biebs wrote: “@Medishare4Haiti is on the ground providing critical medical care and distributing food and hygiene kits to families affected by the devastating 7.2 magnitude earthquake in Haiti. We have set up an auction with @Proplr to raise funds for their lifesaving work,”

Beliebers can gain access to exclusive merchandise if they donate to the fundraiser, with proceeds benefitting Project Medishare, an organization that’s been empowering Haitians and working to improve the quality of their lives since 1994.

Over the last eleven years Haiti is still recovering from a 5.9 magnitude earthquake in 2018 that killed more than a dozen people, and a 7.1 quake in 2010 that damaged the impoverished country’s capital and killed an estimated 300,000 people. In addition to the natural disaster, the country’s also in the midst of a political crisis following the July assassination of President Jovenel Moïse.

In addition to the above, Bieber previously participated in the all-star re-recording of the charity single “We Are the World,” which honored the original Michael Jackson and Lionel Richie-penned version on its 25th anniversary and raised funds for Haiti following the 2010 earthquake.

“Huge thanks to @justinbieber for setting up this amazing auction with @Proplr to raise funds for @Medishare4Haiti earthquake relief efforts. We are so grateful for your support of our work to save lives in #Haiti” wrote the findraiser.
