"I am launching the Believe Charity Drive because I know firsthand that if you believe in your dreams, everything is possible," Bieber said in a statement.

"The Believe Charity Drive directly benefits charities that are making a difference in the world. You can... donate as little as one dollar, or even donate your time, because everything will make a difference. Please join me in our quest to raise millions of dollars by the release of my new 2012 album, Believe. I know that with your help we can make a change."

Bieber himself will donate a portion of his sales from his Christmas album Under the Mistletoe and hopes to raise millions for seven specific charities: The Make-A-Wish Foundation, Pencils of Promise, Musicians on Call, Project Medishare for Haiti, City of Hope, the Boys & Girls Clubs of America and the Grammy Foundation.

Why is the teen in such a giving mood? His own family was once aided by the generosity of others.

"We donated $10,000 to the food bank [from] where I grew up, and I actually used to get food from there," he told MTV News. "It was an incredible feeling, just because they were needing a lot of stuff, so it really meant a lot to me."
