R&B star Jay Sean has asked fans to help him raise cash for the Keep a Child Alive charity as a birthday gift.
The humanitarian turns 30 on Saturday (26Mar11) and he wants fans to celebrate by donating to the cause in order to give life to those affected by Hiv/Aids in Africa and India.
The Anglo-Indian recently returned from a trip to South Africa where he met Hiv-positive patients and children orphaned by Aids at Kca-funded sites.
He says, "I love being an artist because it allows me to do what I love for a living... music. Along with my job comes a platform which I can use to do something that can make a difference.
"I have been blessed with many wonderful fans and it makes me realise how we together can make a positive impact. Having been to two Kca sites in South Africa, I experienced how donations from all over the world are really making a difference in peoples' lives. It's up to all of us to help each other."
