We think other celebs should take note and follow singer Shirley Manson's lead!
For her 45th birthday, the Garbage frontwoman wants nothing more than to raise $4,500 for the children's charity the Pablove Foundation Inc.
According to her cause page:
"I chose PABLOVE FOUNDATION INC because it is very close to my heart. It was set up by two friends of mine who lost their beloved 6 year old son Pablo to a form of childhood cancer. Please think of giving a donation in memory of Pablo and in honour of children with cancer all over the world who need our help. The foundation puts particular emphasis on funding research but also on providing fun creative things for children to do whilst they are stuck in the hospital. Anyone who has gone through a hospital stay with their child will understand how crucial this kind of distraction is to a child's well being."
She's asking for a $45 donation, but will graciously accept any donation to help the cause. Recognizing that times are tough, Shirley is encouraging people to share the page with friends if they can not donate themselves.
