Lily Collins Shuns Birthday Gifts
Phil Collins' charitable daughter LILY shunned gifts at her recent 18th birthday party - asking guests to make a donation to a teen counselling programme instead. The Los Angeles-based model and TV presenter, whose father has made millions as the lead singer of rocker group Genesis, believes asking for presents in her situation would be selfish and greedy. She says, "At my 18th birthday party I raised money for a teen counselling programme. It was a dinner with my friends, but instead of requesting presents, I asked for donations. I don't believe in gifts, I have everything I need."
