This Week’s Q&A Goody:

I know, I know…technically The Bieb’s movie doesn’t drop (as the cool kids say) until next week. But I’m getting over a cold right now and don’t think I can handle getting swept up in Bieber Fever next week. So in the interest of getting a head start on all of the screaming tweens, here is a snippet from my interview with the music (and now movie) phenom:

Why should people see Justin Bieber: Never Say Never?

I wanted to make this movie because it tells the real story of my life. It gives fans the opportunity to see what goes on behind the scenes in my career. It’s a thank-you to my fans for their support.”

Justin Bieber Supports Pencils of Promise

Thursday, December 16th, 2010

bieber-pencilsofpromiseIf you read our latest interview with Justin Bieber, you read about his support for Pencils of Promise (PoP).  

Pencils of Promise is a non-profit organization that partners with local communities to build sustainable schools and provide educational tools to children in developing countries. 

PoP’s mission started when the founder (Adam Braun) asked a child on the streets of India what he wanted most in the world.  The child’s answer, “A pencil.”  Since then, PoP has made it a mission to provide children when pencils and pens to help them on the road to education.

So far, PoP has focused on building schools in Laos and Nicaragua, with 15 schools already built, 8 schools currently being built, and 4 upcoming schools. 

You can visit Pencils of Promise to volunteer for building missions, create a fundraiser, and donate money through the purchase of PoP gifts such as (seen in the photo on the right) a tag necklace created by FAWN by Jennifer Fisher Jewelry.
