i’m a belieber

As if my trip to Disneyland Resort last week did not renew my belief in magic enough, a wondrous occurrence took place this past weekend that has not only renewed my sense of magic, but also my belief in human kindness.

A few weeks ago I wrote a post about a fellow blogger, Anna See, who’s son Jack was killed tragically in a flood. My post was a call-to-action to those involved in social media to help in a campaign called #LiftMargaret which was set in place after Anna posted this “grocery list” written by Jack’s sister Margaret, on her blog, An Inch of Gray,

The campaign was set in motion with the intention of setting up a meet and greet between Justin Bieber and Margaret, in hopes of bringing some joy to a  family who had experienced the unfathomable.

What started as a simple yet completely far-fetched gesture of condolence, love and support for a family in mourning, became a miraculous reality this past weekend. The kind folks at Coca-Cola and Dick Clark Productions arranged for a flight out to the American Music Awards for their entire See family, AS WELL AS, a private meet & greet between Justin & Margaret.

Anna blogged about Margaret’s Excellent Adventure today, so be sure to read it to find out all the luscious details. It will certainly bring you tears of joy.

As part of the twitter #liftmargaret campaign, many of us  tweeted that if Justin actually took the time to meet Margaret, we would all buy posters of him and do a vlog about it.

So, check out my Justin Bieber vlog above to see proof of the kiss.

Kate of The Big Piece of Cake also joined in on the fun so check out her kissing Bieber vlog too.

Thank you, Biebs (can I call you Biebs?), for turning this little girl’s mourning into dancing. You have won yourself lifelong fans in the Godwin Girls! xoxo

    I just watched him on The View during the last hour and was commenting how stinkin’ adorable The Biebs is! I never paid any attention to him until today and I really enjoyed the segment. To read this afterwards just solidified that I’m as well a Belieber! Great post!
