Big Stars, Big Giving: Justin Bieber on getting his fans involved in doing good for others

Editor's Note: In an American Morning original series, "Big Stars, Big Giving," CNN National Correspondent Alina Cho looks at celebrity philanthropy and how these big stars can make a big impact. Through one-on-one interviews with Nicole Kidman, Halle Berry, Edward Norton, Julianne Moore and Justin Bieber, she shares what causes have become their passions, and how you can get involved. The one-hour special debuts December 24th and airs again on December 25th.

Justin Bieber is the hottest music star on the planet right now. Just 16 years old, he already has philanthropy on his mind. 

He's even getting his fans in on helping others. One dollar of every Justin Bieber concert ticket sold goes to Pencils of Promise, a charity that builds schools in third-world countries. 

Also, proceeds from his latest CD, "My Worlds Acoustic" will benefit the Children’s Miracle Network.

    Hi Justin,
    If you are reading this I just wanted to say you have inspired me so much. My sister went through cancer and every step of the way you were with her.

They are doing the best they can but me and her both Never say Never and we would love to meet you someday you are our inspiration and my sisters inspiraton. I love you thanks for making a change.
