Celebrity Philanthropists: Justin Bieber and the Make-A-Wish Foundation

By Verena Tse,

Justin Bieber, 19, has been making up for his previous scandals recently by becoming the first ever recording artist to grant 200 wishes through the Make-A-Wish Foundation.

Ever since 2009, Bieber has been granting wishes after wishes and brought joy to many children who is suffering from a life-threatening condition. Bieber tries to make wishes come true at almost every tour destination and even purchases tickets for the entire family.

The young artist finally granted his 200th wish while he was in the last stop for his Believe Tour. The recipient of this wish was 8-year-old Annalysha Brown-Rafanan who is suffering from a liver condition. She got the chance to meet Bieber backstage and received the VIP treatment in Atlanta.

Make-A-Wish Foundation tweeted him to celebrate his 200th wish and in response, Bieber stated that it was "one of the best moments I've ever had," reports The New York Daily News.

Let’s hope that Bieber has been motivated and inspired by his good deeds and put those scandals to an end!
