Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez visit sick kids in New Zealand

Justin Bieber and his girlfriend Selena Gomez took time out from their hectic schedules on Thursday (19Jul12) to visit sick kids at a New Zealand hospital.

The couple visited patients at the Starship Children's Hospital in Auckland during a visit to the city, where Bieber is promoting his new album.


He spent an hour with kids at the medical facility, signing albums before heading to a gig at the nearby Cloud venue.


Tamati Patuwai, a relative of a patient, tells Stuff.co.nz, "It was just amazing that a star like Justin would take the time to visit the kids who need a spark. It's similar to Michael Jackson when he came and visited the communities."


After his visit, Bieber tweeted, "Do something nice for someone else today. U (you) know your truth... do it for the right reasons."


The Baby hitmaker helped raise $10,000 for the hospital through his Believe charity in December (11).
