The showbiz magazine Variety is set to reward teen sensation Justin Bieber with an award for his charity work.
The 16-year-old will be honored at the ‘Power Of Youth’ ceremony later this month at the Philanthropy Awards in Los Angeles on October 24.
A spokesman for the event said: “Variety’s Power of Youth continues to flourish, thanks to the amazing support of the entertainment community and our generous sponsors. Now in its fourth year, the event has raised over $1 million in charitable contributions, benefiting the several charities the effort has supported since its inception.”
This year’s event celebrates a select group of outstanding young entertainers chosen to receive the Variety’s Power of Youth Philanthropy Award, recognizing their efforts and contributions to philanthropic and charitable causes.
Along with Bieber, this year’s honorees include rapper/actor Bow Wow (Education Through Music — Los Angeles), “Wizards of Waverly Place” star David Henrie (LA's BEST), “Victorious’” Victoria Justice (Girl Up) and “The Secret Life of an American Teenager” star Shailene Woodley (All it Takes).
