Britney Spears asks fans to celebrate her birthday by supporting children's cancer charity
Today is Britney Spears' birthday and she has called on her followers to donate money to a special charitable organisation if they want to celebrate on her behalf.
Writing on Twitter, the superstar explained: "Every year on my birthday the amount of love and gifts I receive from my fans reminds me of how truly blessed I am! The best gift you could ever give me this year is by helping children in need..."
She then returned to the site and provided fans with a link to the Nevada Childhood Cancer Foundation, which she asked them to donate to in her name:
"Join me & @zappos this #GivingTuesday in supporting the @NVCCF & make their year as special as you've made mine."
A quote from Spears on the NCCF's official website explains that it's an organisation she is proud to be standing behind: "I am so proud to join forces with the Nevada Childhood Cancer Foundation and support children and their families in need in my second home of Las Vegas, Nevada."
