Justin Bieber is doing his bit to help victims of Hurricane Sandy.
The pop sensation is currently on his Believe tour and revealed he wanted part of the proceeds to go to the relief effort after the 'superstorm' hit the East Coast of America last month, reports E! News.
He tweeted: "i have spoken to @AdamBraun from @PencilsofPromis and we donate a dollar of every ticket to charity from the #BELIEVEtour ....so.... We decided that for the Jersey, Brooklyn, and 2 MSG shows every ticket sold a dollar will be donated to Hurricane Sandy Relief #GIVEBACK."
The teenager added: "and all 4 shows are SOLD OUT so U are all helping us make a difference in the lives of those that need it right now. thanks #GIVEBACK."
Justin joins a host of celebs who are pulling out the stops in the wake of the hurricane, including Lady Gaga, who donated a million dollars, and Harry Potter actress Emma Watson, who is reportedly helping to deliver food with the organisation Citymeals-on-Wheels.
According to Gossip Cop, Rihanna is also helping out by donating 1,000 sleeping bags to the New York Daily News' recovery campaign.
