DJ AM's Family -- Give Donations, Not Flowers

DJ AM's family is asking his fans to not spend their precious cash on flowers -- and instead donate to a couple of charities that were dear to the DJ's heart.

AM's family went to his MySpace page to issue the following statement:

"We appreciate the kind words and support for Adam over the past few days. Due to your inquiries, in lieu of flowers, AM's family would like to suggest making donations to the following charitable organizations: National MS Society, Southern California Chapter ... or Friendly House"

A rep for Friendly House -- an organization dedicated to helping women recover from alcohol and drug abuse -- told us AM "was a supporter of Friendly House and would show up at our luncheons. I am kind of glad we were even mentioned at this awful time."
