Cuore d’Africa, Italy

Morena Cassano from Italy made a donation to Cuore d’Africa (Heart of Africa). This was the charity that we donated to last year. Morena’s donation goes specifically towards building a barn for the two cows that were donated to their orphanage, the Village of Hope in Machakos, Kenya. The cows will provide fresh milk for the orphans every day.

Read more about the charity here (our page last year), or at their website:

To donate in memory of Michael, go to their donation page and click on the “Donate via Paypal” box on the right.

Thank you, Morena! I hope the orphans get their fresh milk soon!

P.S. - Fans in Rome, Italy are celebrating Michael’s birthday by unveiling a statue of Michael on the 29th. How I wish I were there! Cuore will be holding a fundraiser there to support their orphans in Kenya, and Morena will be promoting her book, “Michael Jackson: More the Prophet than the Artist: Messages of Love, Harmony and Peace”. All proceeds from the book will go towards Cuore d’Africa. You can read more about the event here. Don’t miss it if you are in Rome!!
