What did Justin say? That’s what lots of young gals asked when Justin Bieber launched the teaser video showing him speaking, but unheard due to the screaming fans all around him. Turns out, he was announcing a fundraising challenge for Pencils of Promise, an organization that works to increase quality education in the developing world.

With a donation of just $25, a lucky fan could bring Bieber to their school. The singer said, “I wanted to give every one of my fans a chance to help others and bring me to their school for just $25. The Schools4All campaign is a way for us young people to make a change, and I’ll get to thank an entire school in person.”

How it works: Think of your donation as a $25 lottery ticket. Except, instead of winning a few hundred million dollars, a teenage heartthrob visits your 7th period class. Thankfully, also unlike a regular lottery, the money that goes in actually helps kids around the world.

Even better, for a limited time Barnes & Noble/NOOK will be matching donations up to $50,000.

To get involved, visit the Schools4All and learn how you can help Bieber bring education to communities all around the world
