HERE'S TODAY'S BONUS STORY:

This is probably the best Christmas ever for a charity in Canada, that is thanks to Justin Bieber.  Justin is sharing the Christmas spirit by paying it forward.  The 17 year old super star, performed recently at a charity fundraiser in Toronto and while he was there gave some of his own funds to the cause.

Justin made a $500,000 dollar donation to the Children's Wish Foundation of Canada.  I'm not sure if it's the biggest donation the charity has seen, but it's got to be one of them.  That's not all, he took time to spend time with a few precious moments with some kids back stage who've been diagnosed with life threatening illnesses and then performed for two hours straight.  Cuddles to Justin, that's what you call putting your money where your mouth is.
