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.

Our charity for this year

We have two nominations this year.

MJ fan Morena Cassano works at Cuore d’Africa (Heart of Africa) in Italy and nominated this charity last year. Their website was not ready for international donors then, so Morena said she would work on it and I promised I would keep it as one of the charities for this year.

We also received a suggestion from Pat Peterson for Feed My Starving Children.

We only choose one charity from each category as it is unfair to pit similar charities against each other. Since these two charities belong pretty much to the same category, we will save the second suggestion for next year, and this year we will go with Cuore d’Africa. You can read more about the charity at their website. Click on the row of flags at the top of the page if you need a translation.

Details and instructions on how to donate coming soon. We will start donating on August 15th. Hope you have set aside some money for this year. :)
