Justin Bieber has been given recognition as a humanitarian in the Philippines

Beliebers are feeling pleased that they have never lost faith in the positive character traits of Justin Bieber, even during recent times of legal turmoil dealing with allegations of wrongdoing for him. Bieber has been awarded a star on Philippine Walk of Fame for the Typhoon Haiyan relief effort, reported the International Business Times on Feb. 18, 2014.

Bieber has now earned legendary status in disaster hit Philippines. After Typhoon Haiyan devastated large regions of the Philippines, Beliebers moved into action. It is said they raised about $3 million towards the relief effort. The scandal ridden star has now been recognized for mobilizing his large following of devoted fans with a golden star at the Eastwood City Walk of Fame. Bieber said that he has the best fans in the world, and he knew he could count on them to make a difference.

Bieber is well liked in the highly religious nation of the Philippines, where 90 percent of the people are Christians. His outstanding contribution to the Typhoon Haiyan relief effort has been recognized with a Walk of Fame golden star, reports Inquisitir. The category five Typhoon Haiyan storm hit the Philippines on Nov. 8, 2013 and left nearly 6,000 people dead with millions displaced. The people of the Philippines have not forgotten the generosity and humanitarian zeal of Bieber, even as he has been hit with a snowballing of character assassination attacks in association with a series of criminal charges against him.

If in fact Bieber is actually guilty of anything, his Christian friends in the Philippines, along with his tens of millions of other fans worldwide, are clearly willing to forgive him for simply being human and perhaps for having made some mistakes in his young life. With his clearly genuine feeling for the needs of other people in times of need, Bieber seems like the kind of guy who could learn from his mistakes and move ahead in life in many positive ways if given a fair chance. Hopefully this will be kept in mind before any sentencing if he is found guilty of anything in a proper court of law.
