Tweens will recognize the heart-hand sign popularized by stars like Taylor Swift and Justin Bieber to show love to fans. But today, Biebs is urging folks to “show your hearts” for a special cause.

Bieber, among other stars, are tweeting with the hashtag #showyourhearts to help raise funds and awareness for the Joshua and Robin Berry Children’s Trust

On July 3, the Berry family of Houston, Texas, was struck by another vehicle while traveling in their mini van. Both parents were killed in the accident. Their three children, Peter, 9, Aaron, 8, and Willa, 6, survived – but the boys were left paralyzed below the waist. The children are currently being treated for their injuries in a Houston hospital.

Moved by the family’s tragedy, Bieber has joined forces with the Kardashians, Britney Spears and other celebs to create the Show Your Hearts Fundraising Campaign.

Bieber is encouraging fans to help by changing Facebook and Twitter pictures to Show Your Heart art, posting pics of the heart sign on Facebook with the message “show your heart” and donating to the Joshua and Robin Berry Children’s Trust.

“[On July 27] we all change our profile pics on twitter and facebook and make a donation to #SHOWYOURHEARTS,” Bieber tweeted. “Spread the word. #makeachange.”
