December’s gonna be a big month for Britney Spears — it’s her 32nd b-day, the release of her album Britney Jean, and the 15th anniversary (whoa!) of her first album, …Baby One More Time. In the midst of all this excitement, Brit’s asking that people support St. Jude.
The “Perfume” singer Tweeted:

Brit-Brit’s got a special donation page set up, and she said: “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.”
There are lots of different causes a person can support, and she explained why St. Jude is for her this birthday: “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.”
Britney suggests amounts you can donate, like $30 or $50. But it’s also totally OK if you donate a smaller amount. If you can’t afford to donate but would like to help, you could volunteer at St. Jude or do a fundraiser for the org. Britney wants to make this her best b-day ever by giving kids more b-days, and that’s even more exciting than all the other stuff she has going on right now.
For Britney's b-day, donate to St. Jude and help kids have more birthdays!
