Chris Christie seeks higher power for Sandy relief: Justin Bieber

SHARE Chris Christie seeks higher power for Sandy relief: Justin Bieber

Ne Jersey Gov. Chris Christie presides over a state that has suffered the bulk of the damage and destruction caused by Superstorm Sandy. The Jersey shore alone has accounted for scores of dead, millions of dollars in damage and miles of homes razed.

While federal relief pours in and private donations and efforts mount, Christie has reached out to a higher authority: Justin Bieber. He tweeted to his nearly 280,000 followers that he needs Bieber, of whom Christie’s kids are “huge fans, to push people to the help line to get donations rolling for relief:

The Biebs, just shy of 30 million followers on Twitter, is working the donation angle. But no word from him yet on whether he’ll join forces with Gov. Christie. It would certainly be bigger news that some simple words of appreciation for President Obama.

UPDATE: Bieber to the rescue. The Canadian Prince of All Media retweeted Christie’s plea, garnering at least 1,441 retweets and 734 favorites. It will be interesting to see if that leads to an outpouring of assistance though.
