After a fatal car accident killed the parents of three Texas children and left two paralyzed, Justin Bieber and other big-named entertainers rallied to show support on Wednesday.
The Berry family was returning to Houston, Texas from a Colorado road trip in their minivan on July 4 weekend, when a car switched into their traffic lane and fatally killed parents Robin and Joshua Berry.
The Berry children Peter, 9, and Aaron, 8, were left paralyzed while their little sister Willa, 6, suffered other injuries.
The ‘Show Your Hearts’ fund was created as a platform to donate to the orphaned children, who are currently hospitalized and in need of medical rehabilitation, psychological support and education.

“Tomorrow we all change our profile pics on Twitter and Facebook and make a donation to #SHOWYOURHEARTS,” Bieber tweeted on Tuesday. “Spread the word.”
The pictures that Bieber tweeted about were avatars of hands shaped to resemble hearts. After donations are made, the avatars can be downloaded from the Show Your Hearts website.
