To commemorate Michael's birthday on August 29th, fans from all around the world are making a donation to a charity in honour of Michael. Fans nominate their favourite charities and of these, three finalists will be chosen. Everyone then takes a vote and donate to the charity with the most votes.

Nominate a Charity

Hey everyone! Ready to get going for Michael's birthday this year? We will be donating from August 15th to August 29th, 2012.

Do you have a charity that you would like to nominate? Is there a charity that you think Michael would be happy for his fans to support? Please let us know!

Criteria for charities:

• It must be a cause that Michael was passionate about. (See a list of charities that Michael supported.)
• The charity should benefit people around the world. If not the whole world, then one very poor country.
• The charity must be registered as a non-profit organisation with the government of the country where it is based.
• The charity is not too large (rich) so that our contributions will make a difference.
• They are able to accept online donations from all over the world.

The charities that Michael supported are mainly in the following categories, so please suggest charities from these areas:

• Orphanages
• Environmental causes
• Medical - hospital/research/sick children
• Education
• Humanitarian causes - feeding the hungry, natural disasters.

Please send us your suggestions by August 12, 2012. You can leave a comment below or contact us here.

I would like to nominate Feed My Starving Children, a non profit group founded in 1987 that serves 70 countries. It is 100% donor funded. Each meal costs 22 cents to produce and for each dollar donated 92 cents goes directly to the program. Please check out their website for all the information on this wonderful charity. You may also check them out on the Charity Navigator site.
Thank you for your consideration.

Thanks, Pat. We already have a nomination for a very similar charity, so we will keep this one for next year.
