Justin Bieber went on Ellen yesterday with some big news. So big, he hinted about it on his twitter page before going on air.

After hearing about the students at Whitney Elementary School on a previous episode of Ellen, Bieber decided to send some joy over their way. 70% of the kids who attend Whitney do not have a permanent home. Ellen promised them a donation of $100,000 so the principal can help the school and the families of the kids. While the students at the elementary school watched, Bieber announced he will be matching that gift and donating $100,000 as well.

They were pretty excited about the news, but it was the young singer’s next statement that brought the house down. He will be taking his new Christmas album straight to the school and perform live for the kids.

Watch the screams of joy in the video below and see Bieber’s announcement for yourself. Also, you don’t have to be a teen superstar to help out the kids. Check out this wish list on the school’s website.
