For her birthday, Britney doesn't want expensive gifts or tons of praise. Instead, she'd like fans to donate to Birthdays For St. Jude to help raise money for child cancer patients.
She tells fans:
It's that time of year again when we pause to reflect upon what we're thankful for. I'm thankful to have the most amazing fans in the world who have been there for me through everything!
December is a busy month for me. My new album, Britney Jean, drops on 12/3. My Las Vegas show, Britney: Piece of Me, kicks off 12/27 at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino. And, on 12/2 it's my birthday!
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.
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.
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
So far, only 26% of the goal has been met. Give back and donate your hard earned efforts to kids in need of medical treatment and let's get that number to 100%!
Britney recently met with children from the Children’s Hospital of Orange County to give her support.
She is an inspiration. Thank you for this!
