This is the oddest of friendships. Bad boy, Justin Bieber and education rights fighter, Malala Yousafzai got a chance to chat with each other recently.
While Justin Bieber is in his wilderness days where he is acting out and generally being a noisome nuisance, he has his redeeming qualities. He happens to be one of the top donors to charities.
The pop star donates substantial portions of his hard-won wealth to more than a dozen charities and over 20 good causes on a worldwide level.
Recently, Justin got a chance to enjoy some Face Time with the Pakistani girl who challenged the Taliban, Malala Yousafzai. As everybody knows, Malala defied the Taliban’s ban on women’s education and got hit by a bullet which nearly took her life.
She was later on treated by the best surgical teams abroad and miraculously recovered. Her bravery and nobility has been captured in an autobiography and she was even nominated for the Nobel Prize.
Malala is currently busy supporting the right of every man, woman and child on the planet to free and compulsory education. She is a young lady on a mission.
Justin wrote that he heard Malala’s unbelievable story and he cannot wait to meet her in person. He posted following Instagram.
Bieber captioned the above Instagram, "Just got to FaceTime with Malala Yousafzai. She has such an incredible story. I can't wait to meet her in person and talk about how I can support her and the @malalafund. #love "
Justin plans to donate a sizable portion of his funds to the Malala Fund. Bieber and Malala’s faces were partially hidden in the picture but both can be seen smiling. Malala has started a fund in her name which sees to it that girls everywhere have access to resources that can further their educational endeavors.
Her story is the story of us all as Angelina Jolie said “We are all Malala.” She was nominated for Pakistan’s Youth Peace Prize and the Children’s Peace Prize too.
The girl who had the guts to take on the terrorist Taliban is adamant about her goals. She wants to spread humanity and dignity via a pen and paper instead of a Kalashnikov.
And for that Malala is willing to take on whatever challenges may come her way. Bieber admired such courage and boldness in a young lady and is ready to contribute money to the Malala fund.
