Katy Perry fans looking to send the pop star something special for her birthday this Thursday can donate to a charitable cause she cares about instead.
"Please help me celebrate my birthday by making a donation to DLF," Katy wrote for the David Lynch Foundation website. "Your donation is not only special to me, but to all of the people whose lives you will help through the lifelong gift of meditation."
The David Lynch Foundation provides transcendental meditation instruction at no charge to inner city school kids and veterans suffering from the traumatic stress of combat.
Katy says she has been practicing this type of meditation for over two years now and it's the best thing she's ever done to bring more creativity, positive energy, and peace to her life.
"When I'm tired, stressed, anxious or depressed, I meditate, and it clears my mind, and makes me feel relaxed and happier," she says. "I have shared the meditation experience with my friends, and recommend it to everyone I know."
StarCam spoke with David Lynch on the red carpet just a few months ago about his foundation. Watch the interview right here!
