Canadian pop sensation Justin Bieber has joined forces for a second time with the Adam Braun-led organization Pencils of Promise (PoP) and their Schools4All movement with the 18-year-old singer once again making a promise of his own to visit one lucky school.

According to Schools4All's website, "Every $25 raised by your school educates one child and earns you one lottery ticket to win a visit from Justin," and it seems like Stratford, Ont. native is pumped to be part of the movement again after visiting the 2011 winners.

"Last year's campaign was a lot of fun," the Grammy Award-nominated artist said in an interview. "I was really involved as well and I actually got to go to the school. Me and Adam went there together and it's just a lot fun to go there and see the actual kids that raised so much money and they worked so hard to help other people. It's really sweet to see."

Braun added that the 2011 campaign raised almost $300,000, which made it possible for more schools to be built and that it was "inspiring" to see children helping children get an education.

"When we went to that school, the excitement, the positivity and joy, it was infectious," Braun, who is the brother of Bieber's manager Scooter Braun, said. "It was at that school that Justin said to me, 'Adam, we should definitely do this again next year,' and that's why we're doing it again."

Since its beginning in 2009, PoP has broken ground on 100 schools and completed 75.

For Bieber's 18th birthday in March 2012, three of those schools were dedicated to the "As Long As You Love Me" singer in Laos, Nicaragua, and Guatemala.
