During his concert in Omaha on Saturday, Justin – sporting a Nebraska Strong t-shirt — told the crowd that a portion of the proceeds from the show would be donated to flood relief. He also promised to make a personal donation which his concert promoter, Live Nation, would match.
Additionally, Bai, the beverage company for which he’s a spokesman, will be sending water to affected areas.
After the concert, Justin tweeted:
OMAHA! Thank you for coming out last night. Just by showing up, you became a big part of our efforts to help the victims of the flooding here in the Midwest. Special thanks to @LiveNation & @drinkbai. Stay strong Nebraska, WE LOVE YOU.

The sold-out concert, Justin noted, was the highest-grossing show at the CHI Health Center.
The flooding in Nebraska has caused an estimated $1 billion in damage to the state’s agricultural economy.
