The Starship Hospital, and its Starship Foundation, was among the beneficiaries of profits from Bieber’s Under The Mistletoe Christmas album. The charity drive raised over $10,000 for the hospital.

Donations are an extra to Government funding and provide a variety of initiatives such as new technology, vital research, boosted family support and preventative programs. As a charitable organization, Starship Foundation exists through the generosity of the public who lovingly donate money and/or time to assist in making Starship a world class medical facility. Starship Children’s Health cares for more than 120,000 children from around the country each year.
