Justin Bieber is putting his artistic skills to a higher purpose.
The Canadian-born singer took to Instagram on Saturday to share an original painting he plans to sell, featuring a simple image of a cross rising from a hill, with an overcast sky in the background.
In a caption, the 23-year-old star revealed the painting’s title and explained that all proceeds from its sale would go to help those who’d been affected by the wildfires that have been ravaging California in recent weeks.
“Selling this painting I did called ‘Calvary’ ALL PROCEEDS GO TO WILDFIRES IN CA,” wrote the “Purpose” singer.
The Thomas Fire has destroyed more than 200,000 acres of land near Santa Barbara California, with more than 88,000 forced to evacuate their homes as firefighters battle the blaze.
“These fires are unprecedented,” said California Governor Jerry Brown in an interview with “60 Minutes”, declaring that climate change is responsible for the wildfires that have ravaged the state in recent months.
“We’ve never seen anything like it,” added the governor. “Scientists are telling us, ‘This is the kind of stuff that’s gonna happen.’ And we gotta deal with it.” Watch:
