As we told you a few days ago, Michael Jackson's fans started a campaign to help bring relief to Africa's famine problem "Be Mike Like - Michael Jackson Fans United For Famine Relief" on Facebook. Through UNICEF's website, we were able to setup a direct donation page UNICEF USA in Michael Jackson's and his fans' name.
As of now, there are $1,328 in donations!! MJ fans are promoting this campaign all over the internet, Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr and many other websites and social forums. It's heartwarming to see everyone come together for the greater good!
Another Group on Facebook - "One Rose For Michael" has set up donations for vaccinations against tetanus, measles and polio for children in the poorest countries. So far, over 3,000 vaccines have been donated by Michael's fans.
Again, all money collected through this effort, will be forwarded to UNICEF in Michael Jackson's name on August 29th, day of his 53rd birthday. Please visit their page, all the links and information are listed there, and add your name to this great cause
For those in Canada - the Government will match all individual donations to UNICEF Canada branch, between now and September 16th, 2011. Follow the link to donate to UNICEF Canada
If you know of other important fund raising efforts close to your heart, let us know & we will be happy to share with others.
We are doing a good thing here and in our opinion - Michael Jackson would be VERY proud of his fans!!
Thank you for your generosity. Let's continue doing the best we can, to help "Heal the World"
