Property mogul Donald Trump is urging friends and family to make a donation to the Tsunami Relief Fund, rather than buy expensive gifts for his upcoming wedding.

Billionaire Trump will exchange vows with MELANIA KNAUSS in Florida on Saturday (22JAN05), but he'd rather his wealthy friends stay away from his gift registry and instead donate cash to aid the plight of those affected by the 26 December (04) Indian Ocean tsunami.

He says, "I'm like a bad present person. Even Christmas everyone gives me presents and I never open 'em. It's terrible. They sit unopened...

"I would say that anybody who wants to get me something send money to the Tsunami Fund. That would be my best present."
