We are proud to announce that Action Against Hunger is teaming up with international music superstar Justin Bieber for a global campaign on the celebrity fundraising platform Prizeo to raise awareness and funds for the victims of Typhoon Haiyan.

Donate to win a chance to meet Justin Bieber

The grand-prize winner receives a trip for two to Los Angeles in early 2014 to join Justin Bieber in the studio to watch and listen to him record new music. Want to get involved? Thanks to Prizeo’s innovative micro-donation platform, you can enter to win without breaking the bank: donations of $10 or more are eligible for exclusive rewards, including a campaign T-shirt, signed lyric sheets, and a pair of VIP tickets to the upcoming “Believe” movie premiere. Prizes will also be awarded to the “Biggest Sharers” who raise the most funds by recruiting friends and family to donate.

All these amazing prizes are Bieber’s way of thanking his fans for their support of Philippines disaster relief efforts. In a statement about the campaign, he expressed hope that his efforts would inspire his fan base to take action and help those affected by the typhoon:

“When I heard about the massive scale of the Typhoon Haiyan disaster, I wanted to help in any way I could. One of the best ways I can do that is to bring a major fundraising effort to my fans all around the world—especially via social media. Prizeo will make it easy for them to donate and to share the information with all their friends, hopefully maximizing the funds we can raise for the relief efforts.”

You can make a difference

Since Typhoon Haiyan struck the Philippines in early November, our teams have been on the ground delivering lifesaving aid to hundreds of thousands of people in need. Our relief efforts are made possible by our generous friends and supporters, and Robert Kelty, Action Against Hunger’s Global Campaign director, is confident that this campaign will galvanize even more people to help:  

“We cannot thank Justin enough for stepping forward, and for volunteering to empower his immense international network of fans to get involved as well. For a campaign of this magnitude and a cause this urgent, we needed a strong, scalable technology platform to handle the level of traffic we expect Justin’s campaign will generate. Activating a massive fan base like Justin's will generate a great deal of awareness around these crucial relief efforts, and Prizeo will make it easy to translate that awareness into action.”
