To mark Michael Jackson's 53rd birthday next week, we will push for more donations to the Unicef-Michael Jackson Horn of Africa Famine Relief Effort.
A pledge is not mandatory. At all times, fans can donate directly through this link: Michael Jackson Fans United for Famine Relief
Or you can pledge to donate an amount link to a particular milestone, goal or challenge.
Here are a few example of pledges / challenges: Donating $1 per new twitter follower on MJ's birthday; $20 for each MTV poll MJ won; $2 each time you or a designated follower tweets Michael Jackson's name, $100 if you get a certain celeb to follow you on Twitter, $10 for each hour MJ's name is on the Worldwide Trending Topic on August 29th.......the possibilities are ENDLESS.
Be as creative as you want. Feel free to challenge your friends and followers to participate in the fundraiser.
You set your milestone or challenge....and you decide how much money each achievement is worth.
To participate in the Pledge-O-Thon, leave your twitter name, briefly describe your personal pledge (limit yourself to a single pledge or challenge), amount to be donated and day it will take place, in the comment section below.
Example of a pledge:
Pledge: $2 for each new follower, until we reach 1000. Current Follower count: 948
Date of the challenge: From August 27th through August 30th 2011
The official start of the Pledge-O-Thon Event is Saturday, August 27th 12:01 AM and ends on Labor Day weekend, Saturday September 3rd 12:00AM.
We will ask that all pledges be fulfilled by September 7th, 2011. Again, all money goes to:
Thank you and have fun!!
To all our friends on the East Coast please stay safe.
Happy 53rd Birthday Michael!!!
