Selena Gomez Requests No Birthday Presents--Donate to Charity Instead

Selena Gomez will turn 19 on Friday, and she has made a very special request regarding her birthday. She has asked her friends to forgo buying her any birthday presents, preferring they make a charitable donation instead.
According to a report from OK Magazine, Selena is hoping to simply hang out at the beach on her birthday and enjoy the entire day--which she has taken off from work for that very purpose. Will Justin Bieber still be around to take part in the beach day and to celebrate Selena's birthday? He did show up at her tour rehearsal in L.A. earlier this week, and reportedly has taken a month off from work.
Do you think Justin Bieber will be able to honor Selena Gomez's no birthday presents wish? That doesn't seem likely. Perhaps the Biebs will do double-duty on Selena's birthday--buying her a gift and making a charitable donation as well.
It's really thoughtful of Selena Gomez to suggest that her friends donate to a charity rather than buying her gifts. So many Hollywood celebrities are wrapped up in themselves and can't seem to take possession of enough things. It certainly appears as though Selena Gomez isn't one of those materialistic types, but rather it seems like her heart and head are in the right place.
Of course her heart and a good portion of that head do belong to Justin Bieber, which only makes people envy Selena Gomez even more. Hopefully the two get to enjoy one another's company on Selena's 19th birthday.
So what do you think? Will Justin Bieber be able to honor Selena's request of no gifts? Or do you think that because he's her boyfriend, and not simply a friend, that he is exempt from this rule?
