In lieu of bringing gifts for Iman and David's baby-on-the-way, the expecting couple would prefer donations be made to their favorite cause, Save The Children!
Here is a bit of info from Teenage Wildlife about how this idea came to be:
About 10 days ago, fan Terri Stiffler wrote in to suggest that the upcoming New York concerts would be a good venue for fans who wanted to donate gifts for Iman and David's imminent addition to the family. After some detective work and phone calls by Terri to the Roseland Ballroom, the head of promotions at Roseland called back yesterday with the following message:
"After checking with David Bowie's management, we were informed that Iman is requesting that in lieu of bringing baby presents for her and David, if people would instead make donations to Save The Children, which is one of the many charitable organizations that she feels very strongly about that she is directly working with."
There are many options to donate money or assist in other ways at the Save The Children website. Alternatively, you can make purchases via the Greater Good list of online stores with a guaranteed 5% of your cost being donated directly to Save The Children. Ed: Thanks to Terri for her idea and follow up on this cause.
