A group of school girls have selflessly donated the once-in-a-lifetime chance to meet Justin Bieber to charity.

Five Bloomington, IL 8th grade girls raised over $22,000 with their local school to help educate students across the globe. Epiphany Catholic students Sarah, Julia, Kelly, McKenna, & Kristine were announced this week as the winners of Justin Bieber’s Schools4All campaign with non-profit Pencils of Promise, an organization that builds schools in developing countries.

For their prize, the girls received two plane tickets to meet Justin Bieber. Instead of debating over which girls should get the tickets, the five friends chose to instead selflessly donate their reward to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.

In 2011, the girls worked together to create a team donation page and raised over $13,000, helping to build a pre-school in Nicaragua that is now dedicated to them. This year they returned to Epiphany Catholic to raise another $13,000, with Barnes and Noble matching most of the funds raised to reach a total of over $22,000.
