Justin's 17th Birthday

Read Mission Statement

I have had an incredible year and it is all due to the fans helping me live my dream. I'm turning 17 years old on Tuesday, and have so much to be grateful for!

So this year, I really want my birthday to be all about helping others. Instead of asking for gifts, I'm asking friends, family and fans to consider donating $17 for my 17th birthday to help make a change.

100% of all donations go directly to building clean water projects in developing countries with charity: water, and we'll be able to see photos and GPS of the projects we helped build!

Together, we've made a big difference for many causes. 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. Join me to make a change.

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. 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!

    I just turned 6 years old and I asked my friends and family to bring a small donation to my party instead of a present. I am happy to help people and want Justin to know that I love his music and think he's a great role model for my sister and I. Thanks to everyone who came to my party!
