Don't buy me gifts: Britney Spears urges fans

Los Angeles, Nov 25 : Singer Britney Spears urges fans to spend money on charity instead of buying birthday presents for her.


Spears turns 32 Dec 2 and wants her fans to donate money to the St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. She will also contribute to the charity.

She expressed her desire in an open letter to her fans, reports contactmusic.com.

"This year, I'm doing something different for my birthday. I'm dedicating it to the kids of St. Jude. Help me out by not buying me a gift this year. Buy them a gift instead - the gift of another birthday," Spears wrote in the letter.

She even gave a reason for choosing St. Jude Children's Research Hospital as the organisation to give charity to.

"Why St. Jude? Since opening in 1962, treatments invented at St. Jude have helped push the overall childhood cancer survival rate from 20 percent to 80 percent. Families never receive a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing and food - because all a family should worry about is helping their child live," wrote Spears.

"That's right - the best care in the world, for free, because of people like us. Now that's something worth celebrating. Let's get this party started. Love always, Britney," she wrote.
