Justin Bieber presents $500,000 cheque to Children's Wish Foundation of Canada — photo credit: MuchMusic/George Pimentel for WirCharity was far from the minds of the ecstatic girls that comprised the majority of the 2750-capacity audience at Toronto’s Massey Hall last night (Dec. 21) for Justin Bieber’s rare theatre concert. They were just focused on the 17-year-old pop heartthrob, as he performed with his guitarist, Dan Kanter, for close to two hours.

All ticket proceeds from the special Christmas show, Justin Bieber: Home For The Holidays, which airs tonight on Canada's MuchMusic/CTV, went to his Believe Charity Drive — but even before those figures were calculated, the generous teen decided to round it up to an even half-a-mil.

When the show came to a close, Bieber came out onstage with a young boy and girl, carrying a giant cheque for $500,000, made out to Sunnybrook Foundation, Children’s Wish and Project Medishare from Justin Bieber’s Believe Charity Drive.

Bieber's mission for his charity is to "help people in need." On the site, he encourages people to donate or to start their own fundraising page and asking his or her friends to join "you & Justin." The three-step how-to asks 1) Pick a charity; 2) Create a fundraiser; 3) Make a change.
