Both Ringo Starr and Paul McCartney pitched in to celebrate Doris Day's 90th birthday April 3. In a video, Ringo wished the actress a happy 90th birthday.

“Hi, peace and love everybody. My name is Ringo and I just want to thank the Doris Day Foundation for all the animals she saved. Dogs, cats. And there's a huge fundraiser going on right now so please help out. OK, and thanks for 'Octopus' Garden.'” You can see Ringo in the video at this link. (Password to view: DORIS90) He's the second celebrity in the video, right after Tony Bennett.

Both Paul McCartney and daughter Stella contributed items to a special April 1 online auction sponsored by the Doris Day Animal Foundation to benefit the charity. The online auction included items including a Paul McCartney signed “Wings Over America” box set; a Stella McCartney Falabella bag; and a Tony Bennett signed lithograph of Ella Fitzgerald and giclée of the Golden Gate Bridge. The signed "Wings Over America" set sold for $1,250.

Ms. Day has asked fans in lieu of a birthday gift to contribute to her Doris Day Foundation to save animals.
