Adam Lambert - Adam Lambert Raising Charity Money For Birthday

Adam Lambert has asked fans to forgo sending him gifts to mark his birthday and donate to charity instead.

The former American Idol star turns 31 on Tuesday (29Jan13) and he is keen to raise as much money as possible for the We Are Family Foundation, which supports youth programs.

Lambert has asked his fans to donate money to the cause, and has taken to his Twitter.com page to raise awareness of the fundraising.

In a post, he writes, "I'm so proud to partner with WeAreFamilyFdtn (sic) for my birthday this year & help empower teens everywhere!"

The singer celebrated his birthday early by hosting a party on Friday (25Jan13) at West Hollywood hotspot Bootsy Bellows in California, where co-owner David Arquette stunned onlookers by stripping to his underwear and dancing for Lambert.

This has become a bit of a tradition which started way back in 2009 when Adam was on the American Idols tour after the competition, and he was getting showered with lots of gifts and couldn't keep them all on the tour bus, especially as many of them were bulky or inappropriate, and he felt that it was a shame that people spent so much money on gifts for him which were going to waste. So he announced that if people wanted to send him a gift that they should donate money to the Donors Choose charity instead which provides arts materials for struggling schools in the US, and a page was set up on the charity website for this purpose. Since then many charities have benefited from this similar schemes and Adams Birthday is when most of the gift giving effort is focused.
