Receiving so many thoughtful gifts from his fans, the 'American Idol' star calls on them to stop giving him gifts but send the cash they spend to a charity instead.

Outlandish rocker has urged his fans to stop sending him gifts and donate the cash they spend to a charity instead. The "" star has taken to his Twitter account to poll the request with his online followers, telling them how he came up with the idea when he was bombarded with fan mail and presents on a tour in 2009.

He writes, "Been doing lots of thinking... Last year on the road I received so many thoughtful gifts from all of you. But I very quickly ran out o' (of) room."

"Instead of giving me gifts, why not donate 2 donorschoose.org or other charity in my name? U can print a receipt 4 me and personalize it." The site allows web users to donate cash to help needy schools across America.
