The world already belongs to Justin Bieber, so why not use his fame to save it? The teen idol just became a literal lifesaver -- and all it took was a single tweet.

The "Pray" singer boosted the number of Ontario organ donors this weekend by re-tweeting a message from a young woman named Helene Campbell who needs  a lung transplant as she suffers from idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis.

"Hey @justinbieber! I BELIEB you should use that Canadian voice of yours and save lives like mine #beanorgandonor beadonor.ca #giveblood," the 20-year-old activist tweeted the pop star Thursday.

Two days later, Bieber re-tweeted Campbell's message with the note, "i got the word....you have amazing strength. i got u."

The 17-year-old singer asked his fans to "help spread the word," and it wasn't long before the legions of Beliebers complied.

The Trillium Gift of Life Network, an Ontario organ and tissue donor agency, reported a shocking 565 people register on its website in the days after Campbell's initial tweet. A spokesperson for the organization said it would normally take three weeks to get that many registrants.

Bieber's hand in the matter did not go unnoticed. Campbell sent him a video message to thank him for "taking time out of your busy schedule" to re-tweet her message and said that she was a "Belieber."

For his part, Bieber said he was "glad to be able to help. best part of what i do."
