The Michael Jackson Allegations Blog

For decades, the media has given the public a false narrative that is biased against Michael Jackson. They have told half-truths wrapped up in semi-factual information to brainwash an unsuspecting public into believing Michael Jackson was guilty of child molestation. We wanted to share with our subscribers a great blog that focuses solely on the Allegations made against Michael. We think it’s a great research that cites sources and allows the reader to come to logical conclusion based solely on factual information regarding the 1993 allegations, the 2005 trial and the failed attempt of Wade Robson to bring a case against Michael’s Estate & companies.

We have posted just a snippet of the blog section entitled “The 1993 Allegations” with a link to the full article. The site was created December of 2016 and we’d like you to promote it on all MJfan sites as well as Twitter, Facebook, Instagram accounts. Please be sure to read it and visit the site often – We must arm ourselves with facts if we wish to push back against the media’s desire to keep the false narrative in place-

This is the ultimate mission of MJJJusticeProject.

We will from time to time be reblogging other articles from this site . We find it to be the most succinct collection of factual information and it focuses solely on the allegations. We want to promote it because it’s important to understand the complexity of all the players involved in the false narrative about Michael Jackson. We consider it a vital bookmark.

The Michael Jackson Allegations

The 1993 Allegations

On August 17, 1993 the Los Angeles police department opened an investigation against Michael Jackson based on an allegation that he sexually molested a 13-year-old boy called Jordan Chandler.  In this section of our website we will discuss the Chandler case in-depth. We decided to go along a timeline which hopefully will make it easier to follow the events as they unfolded and to put them into a context.

While you go along with the timeline you will find links to longer articles. These articles explain the events listed in the timeline in-depth and they are essential for understanding the Chandler allegations against Michael Jackson. In the timeline we may cite one article several times if it is deemed relevant to several events. Our sources are listed at the end of each article.


May 1992 – Michael Jackson meets his later accuser Jordan Chandler and his family at a car rental agency owned by the boy’s stepfather David Schwartz, after the singer’s car breaks down on Wilshire Boulvard, Los Angeles. Schwartz offers Jackson a deal: he would rent him a car for free if Jackson promises to call Jordan who was a big fan of the star. Jackson accepts the deal and calls Jordan a couple of days later. He and the boy’s family become friends.

For details about this encounter and an introduction to the Chandler family see: Michael Jackson’s first accuser – meet the Chandler family!

May 1992-January 1993 – Jackson keeps a telephone contact with Jordan and the boy’s mother June Chandler. According to the Chandlers’ recollections Jackson called them about 8-10 times during this period, so approximately once a month. According to June Chandler she was present throughout all of the phone calls.

February 1993 – Jordan Chandler, his mother and his younger sister visit Neverland for the first time.

March 1993 – June and Jordan Chandler again visit the ranch in March. According to June, on several occasions Jordan asked her if he could sleep in Michael Jackson’s bedroom, because all the other kids were there. She described Jordan as being very pushy about this on a number of occasions but she did not allow him. Jordan did, however, play up in Jackson’s room until 2:00am before returning to his guest room.

March 28-April 1993 – Jackson invites June, Jordan and Jordan’s sister to Las Vegas where they stay at the Mirage Hotel. From then on the family frequently visits Neverland, Jackson’s Century City condo and goes with him on trips in and outside of the USA. The Chandlers claim Jordan and Jackson began sharing a bedroom at this Las Vegas trip, although they do not claim any abuse right away.

MJGlobal Family Wants Michael Jackson Avenue in Detroit

In mid May 2018, the MJGlobal family celebrated the announcement that the City of Detroit was planning to dedicate a portion of Randolph Street, in the theatre district, by renaming it  Michael Jackson Avenue. However, quite unexpectedly, by mid June 2018,we were heartbroken  when according to Detroit Free Press city announced the plans were suddenly scrapped. Seems it was his own siblings that threw a wrench into these plans to honor Michael, their own brother. A sad and shameful display of shortsightedness and ego. See MJVibe article.

The brothers may not want to honor the little brother that brought them great success with his naturally gifted talent but WE DO .

We urge the MJGlobal family to be actively involved in a massive world wide Twitter/email/letter campaign- 

Michael’s brothers should have no say in whether or not Detroit names a street after Michael. After all that he has endured in our country, when a major city like Detroit wishes to honor him there should be no hesitation in making it happen. His influnece across the globe is undeniable. With every video we see of children emulating his dance, every choir, graduation class or symphony celebrating his music, fashion designers copying his way of dress. It is only right that Detroid honor him as HE is a cultrual ICON and should be treated as such.

A brief history for people who don’t know the Jackson 5 to solo artist Michael Jackson saga. [Skip this if you’re well versed in Michael Jackson and his J5 history and go directly to Campaign Goal section]

Michael the youngest and most talented of the group was lead vocal and he mesmerized Berry Gordy, with his voice and dancing skill. Jermaine stated  “without Jackson 5, Michael Jackson wouldn’t exist” but WE and millions of other Michael Jackson advocates will tell you “Without Michael Jackson, Jackson 5 would not exist”  Berry Gordy, already had signed Stevie Wonder and he wasn’t keen on dealing with more young stars. However, despite these misgivings he finally relented to the pleadings of Suzanne DePasse and met with Jackson 5. After watching little dynamo Michael, Berry Gordy, signed them Motown Records. The hits poured forth, one after another – A list of Top Ten Jackson 5 songs –

With Michael as leader and front man, the Jackson 5 broke records and made many hits for Motown— but Michael Jackson also had that extra oomph, and Berry wanted to explore his chances as a solo artist. Please read, Classic Motown article that explores Michael’s early years as member of Jackson 5 and also his prominence as a solo performer under tutelage of Berry Gordy. Motown Label link

Campaign Goal

Our goal is to have the MJGlobal family impress upon the Detroit City Council the need to continue with their plans to honor Michael Jackson with Michael Jackson Avenue. Michael not only deserves this honor because he was part of the Jackson 5 but because he had his own solo career at Motown and was a mega talented young boy who developed into a world wide Mega Star- There is no other artist that can measure up to Michael Jackson’s status as an entertainer, or any other celebrity who has done as much for humanity all over the planet through his impressive philanthropy.

What To Do

Use contact informaiton of Detroit City Council members below:

LIST of City Council Members names, districts, phone numbers, emails and twitter accounts if available

EMAIL and CALL EACH ONE and Tweet to the ones with Twitter Accounts

Hell even FAX them if you feel so inclined !!

Make is crystal clear that Michael Jackson fans are ready to visit Detroit as a destination just to have our picture taken with his street sign. Every year, Michael Jackson fans visit the United States from all over the world, for the Michael Weeks that include June 25h and August 29th. This destination in Detroit would be a possible MJfan draw, along with the Hitsville Museum, and it could potentially boost Detroit’s tourism numbers substantially.

This August 29th 2018 is also Michael Jackson 60th Birthday and it would be a wonderful day to appropriately honor him for all that he has done, not only for Motown, Detroit but for the world in general. Making a day to celebrate and presenting Michael Jackson Ave to his children Prince, Paris and Blanket would also bring Michael Jackson fans to the city. Don’t forget Motown 25th Anniversary was Michael’s coronaiton.

Implore and Insist that they reinstate the plan to rename part of Randoph St to Michael Jackson Avenue –

How Harvey Weinstein Used Gossip, AJBenza & Tabloid Head, Dylan Howard to Cover Up His Sexual Scandals

Dylan Howard (Editor of RadarOnline & The Enquirer), A.J Benza (gossip columnist) and The Weinstein Company published stories about Michael Jackson to blow smoke as cover up for stories about Harvey Weinstein-

Excerpt from New York Times

Keeping the Media Close

Shortly after the news investigations of Mr. Weinstein’s alleged abuse were published, A. J. Benza, a former New York Daily News gossip columnist, received a two-word text from the producer: “Help me.”

Screen Shot 2017-12-07 at 2.35.06 PM

Mr. Benza had been integral to the network of friendly journalists — gossip columnists, magazine writers, editors and authors — whom the producer relied on to promote his entertainment empire and sometimes punish rivals or deflect threats.

Over dinner in West Hollywood in late 2003 or early the next year, the men had discussed a plan to help Mr. Weinstein avoid embarrassment. While married to his first wife, he had become involved with someone else, Mr. Benza discovered. A clerk at a Los Angeles art studio where he commissioned a gift for Mr. Weinstein — a painting of a reimagined “Hollywood” sign reading “Harveywood” — volunteered to Mr. Benza that a friend, Georgina Chapman, was seeing the producer. Mr. Weinstein, who would later marry Ms. Chapman, was separated and wanted to keep the relationship confidential until he was divorced, according to his spokeswoman, Sallie Hofmeister.

Mr. Benza, then between jobs, had a suggestion. “I could supply your P.R. girls with a lot of gossip — a lot of stories — and if people come at them with the ‘Harvey’s having an affair story,’ they can barter,” Mr. Benza recalled telling Mr. Weinstein. “He said, ‘A. J., it’s got to be good stories,’ and I said, ‘Don’t you worry about it.’ Collecting a monthly retainer, Mr. Benza said, he reported items on Roger Clemens, Michael Jackson and others and sent them to Mr. Weinstein’s communications team, though he didn’t know whether they were used to trade away stories about the producer. Mr. Weinstein’s spokeswoman said the payments to Mr. Benza were for public relations work during Miramax’s dispute with Disney.

After 10 months, Mr. Weinstein said, “I think the coast is clear; I think we beat this thing,” according to Mr. Benza, who recently had a brief stint as a writer for American Media and also runs his own gossip podcast, “Fame Is a Bitch.”

Mr. Benza and Mr. Weinstein were exploiting a longstanding system of favor-trading between the press and the movie business. Gossip writers need a stream of insider scoops, industry beat reporters need exclusives on the next big deal and glossy magazines need celebrities who can drive newsstand sales. Mr. Weinstein, who wanted glowing coverage, could provide that and more.

The producer often held out business opportunities to those who covered him. He had book and movie deals with writers and editors at  Fox News, The New York Post, Premeire Magazin, Vanity Fair, Variety and elsewhere. In Mr. Benza’s case, a book contract came immediately after he left The Daily News. In interviews, several journalists who had business ties to him said the arrangements did not cause them to pull punches.

He had particularly strong ties to the tabloid giant American Media — owner of The Enquirer, Globe, OK!, Radar Online and others — with which he teamed up to pursue several media and production deals.

~~ End of NYTimes excerpt —

AJ Benza – “He had book and movie deals with writers and editors […] In Mr. Benza’s case, a book contract  came immediately after he left The Daily News.”

It is reported that  Weinstein offered AJ Benza $20k MONTHLY –

In an interview posted on Grubstreet- AJ Benza stated:Screen Shot 2017-12-07 at 2.58.25 PM

“I’d like to think those weren’t the stories we wrote.”

But Benza himself admits quite the opposite:

“Earlier this month, I heard AJ Benza, the host of the celebrity-scandal show “ Case Closed with AJ Benza” tell the podcast host Adam Carolla about his younger days as a gossip reporter in New York City. He hung out with celebrities until the wee hours of the morning, reported out sensational rumors, and constantly traded favors in order to get juicy tidbits for columns at Newsday and the New York Daily News. Most trades involved information he wanted about a particular person at a particular moment––and he would then owe his source a favor in the future.”

“traded favors in order to get juicy tidbits”

He goes on the Grubstreet interview to say –  “I dug for Michael Jackson material, in the 1990’s – I wanted to write interesting, factual stories to hold reader interest, not rumors or slurs. [..] Rumors and slurs reflect on the newspaper.”

Yet we can see clearly in AJ Benza’s -Daily News article “Michael Jackson & Acquaintance With Injustice”  – that rumors and slurs were part and parcel of AJ Benza style, and seemingly depending on who he befriended or unfriended.

“There is no price tag hanging from my sleeve, but there is most definitely a price to pay for my friendship.”

When Margaret Maldonado broke off her friendship with Benza in 1997, because of a caustic slur he used against Michael Jackson, he openly threatens Michael with “Ready, Aim Fire”


“Honest. When Margaret called me in tears, I offered to write a letter to whoever it is that answers the mail at Neverland. She declined. I offered to call. She declined. “I don’t even want them knowing that I’m your friend,” she said. That hurt. I understand it, but it hurts nonetheless. And it’s not just people like Margaret who say such stuff. But that kind of dis has a special sting when it falls from the lips of people I love people who know the blood in my heart is a lot thicker than the ink this paper is printed on. You know who your are, and don’t think for a minute that I don’t know my supply of enemies would double and my list of friends would halve the minute I lost this gig. With that, Michael Jackson should only know that his former sister-in-law’s once-tight friendship with me has saved his skin a number of times, in this column and on national TV. He should know that one phone call from Margaret, and the story used to die. While I’m at it, he should also know I’ve spent nights at the apartment he pays for, with his nephews by my side, and heard nothing but good things about him from their young, unlying mouths. With his army of supporters headed for the exits, Jackson should know he might have just disarmed some of his best soldiers. He’s a general out of control, with the media’s sights still set bullseye on his pretty little nose. And now, there is no more Margaret Maldonado to step in front of the bullet. I’m gonna miss you, baby. But Michael is gonna miss you more. Ready. Aim. Fire.”

Notice how he taunts Michael Jackson I’ve spent nights at the apartment he pays forbut the more telling part of the quote is “with his nephews by my side, and heard nothing but good things about him from their young unlying mouths” 

Michael’s nephews and Margaret only spoke glowingly of Michael Jackson and Benza believed them as they spoke from “unlying mouths” –  If his publishing “rumors and slurs” were based on his hurt feelings, then there is no integrity in his words.

Dylan Howard the purveyor of baseless filth at the helm of Radar Online exceeds the rancor of AJBenza by far- Some of the most heinous articles from Dylan Howard’s Radar Online were the ones published near the 7th Anniversary of Michael Jackson’s death-  A commenter “OTW_” speaks for many in the Michael Jackson global fanbase.

To examine just how perverse this particular Radar Online article was, Raven Woods, author, educator and pop culture journalist, wrote a detailed Huffington Post article detailing and debunking it-  (Her twitter acct @emailRaven -please do follow)

Of course, most other media outlets didn’t redistribute or copy paste the Huffington Post article but rest assured they had copy pasted the Radar Online article ad nauseum-

It was Michael Jackson who said “Good news doesn’t sell”  It’s the baseless dirt that get regurgitated by Mainstream Media over and over, without any research or attempt to locate source information that is trustworthy.

“He had particularly strong ties to the tabloid giant American Media — owner of The Enquirer, Globe, OK!, Radar Online and others”

This revelation that Harvey Weinstein used Dylan Howard who had great influence on many Tabloid broadsheets, doesn’t surprise MJGlobal fanbase, as we have been shouting that these baseless stories needed to cease for YEARS.

More concrete evidence that Dylan Howard protects the sexual deviants in Hollywood is seen when Radar Online threatened  Terry Crews . Crews exposed Radar Online threatening email he received from them AFTER he came out with his claim that Adam Venit, a big Hollywood Agent, “mover and shaker”  sexually accosted him.

The 49-year-old actor made the accusation on Twitter.com Sunday.

“1 day after my @GMA interview, @radaronline threatened me w/ a false story abt me hiring 2 hookers at the 2015 Monte Carlo TV Festival,” Crews tweeted.

His tweet was in reference to his appearance on Good Morning America. He said the next day, he received an email from RadarOnline threatening to report he hired 2 prostitutes while on holiday with his wife in Monaco.

In a bit of an ironic twist and may give many in the Michael Jackson fanbase a deep sense of satisfaction, especially if proven true:

– Dylan Howard has just been recently accused of sexual harassment –

“The AP spoke with 12 former employees who knew about the investigation into Howard’s behavior, though not all were aware of every detail. Philip Deming, the outside investigator hired to examine complaints about Howard’s behavior, also confirmed to the AP that he completed a report.

Many of the former employees who described Howard’s behavior said they had decided to do so after the New Yorker and other news organizations published emails in recent weeks showing that Howard had worked with Harvey Weinstein to undermine allegations of sexual assault and harassment against the movie producer.”

From Huffington Post:

“Ex-employees told the AP that Howard forced female employees to watch or listen to recordings of celebrities having sex for no professional reason. They also claimed that Howard encouraged journalists to have sex with sources to get more information for their stories.

Maxine “Max” Page, a former senior editor at RadarOnline ― an AMI publication ― said Howard’s behavior was “completely unacceptable” and that she reported him to human resources on behalf of two female reporters. Page’s report prompted the company to hire an outside consultant to investigate Howard’s behavior.

Howard has also been accused of helping discredit women accusing film mogul Harvey Weinstein of sexual assault, including actress Rose McGowan, The New Yorker reported in November.

Howard reportedly sent his own reporters to find information on McGowan. In one instance, according to The New Yorker, the reporter recorded an off-the-record conversation with one of McGowan’s exes and told Weinstein about the conversation.

AMI also runs the prominent celebrity tabloids Star Magazine and OK! Magazine.”

From Associated Press

NEW YORK (AP) — Gossip editor Dylan Howard faced sexual harassment accusations at another employer after leaving National Enquirer publisher American Media Inc. amid similar allegations 15 months earlier.

Documents obtained by The Associated Press showed former employees at gossip site Celebuzz said Howard asked female employees about their sex lives and once threw a sexual aid at another employee.

An April 2013 letter from an internal investigator said Howard violated Celebuzz’s sexual harassment policy. It did not specify what Howard did but described eight allegations against him.

AMI rehired Howard after he left Celebuzz.

Howard says of the allegations, “There is nothing here that has any truth to it.”

The AP previously reported that Howard was the subject of a 2012 investigation while at AMI. He called those allegations “baseless.”

And the deepest research is always done by Michael Jackson justice seekers and advocates for his truth- For those that love to read and follow great Twitter Threads check out the account @PhoenixLaNegra  as she quite deftly highlights even more bits and article regarding the gossip mongers trying to cover for Harvey Weinstein.


As they say “Karma is a Bitch”

The Michael Jackson Halloween Special a HIT!! “We’re Takin’ Over”

Screen Shot 2017-10-29 at 9.38.15 PM

2017 is the Michael Jackson Halloween TAKEOVER

Screen Shot 2017-10-30 at 7.09.06 AM

It started off early in July 2017, with Michael Jackson’s Thriller featured in the Stranger Things 2 Second Season preview circulated. So far 12,294,867 views.


Then August 2017, it was announced Thriller3D would premiere at Venice International Film Festival- Later it’s revealed by the MJEstate that plans are to have Thriller 3D released in IMAX theaters next year- as well as, a Ghosts project.

Screen Shot 2017-10-30 at 12.17.36 AM

Then September 2017 – MJ Scream, a compilation of Michael Jackson’s thrilling tracks is released with a Blood On the Dancefloor/Dangerous remix –

Then the Halloween Special Premieres!!

Friday, October 27th, 2017, a new hourlong animated delight entitled Michael Jackson’s Halloween Special aired on CBS, to the delight of televison viewers.

Before airing, the animated special created an air of great anticipation:

“Here’s a chance to trick or treat with the eyes and ears” AP 

“It contumes Halloween as a life-affirming way to explore hope and dreams” CBS

“The special will weave together 25 songs from Jackson’s catalogue, including spookier fare like “Thriller” and “Blood on the Dance Floor,” slightly deeper cuts like “Childhood,” and peripheral hits like Rockwell’s “Somebody’s Watching Me” and the Jacksons’s “Torture.”  Variety 

And the TV Ratings Prove that the magic of Michael Jackson STILL Delivers !!

A Viewership of  5.67 Million for CBS, as only the World Series brought in more viewers.

“King of Pop Michael Jackson was the King of television Friday night (October 27th) as reports indicate his CBS Halloween special, ‘Michael Jackson’s Halloween,’ reigned over ratings and scored yet another win for the network in the process.”   GrapeJuice

Screen Shot 2017-10-29 at 9.20.24 PM

John Branca, co-producer of the Halloween special, who worked with his friend for over two decades, stated: “Michael loved Halloween, he loved animation; he was basically a big kid at heart. We wanted to stay true to and be inspired by Michael and what his tastes and loves were.” 

Michael Jackson, indeed “was a big kid at heart” and we know he had desired to create a Halloween Special as revealed by notes, he’d written to himself.  Screen Shot 2017-10-29 at 8.32.21 PM

What Michael had in mind for a Special, may not have been along the lines as this animation project but it does incorporate Michael’s love for all aspects of the season. It is exactly the kind of platform that attracts younger geneartion to his music.  Michael Jackson was enamored with the thought of trick or treating incognito and with his penchant for sweets, an additional boon for him. Donning disguises while taking on different personas also gave him the ability to feel free, since he could never go out without being physically overwhelmed by fans. 

“I love to trick or treat. I love dressing up like some kind of monster… and knocking on doors. Nobody knows it’s me and I get candy!”

“I missed out on Halloween for years and now I do it. It’s sweet to go door-to-door and people give you candy. We need more of that in the world. It brings the world together.”

Michael Jackson celebrating Halloween with Cascio family in New Jersey

Michael Jackson understood early on in his career that a legacy of artistic exceptionalism required hard work, planning and preparation. He constantly endeavored to create something new through his talent and wanted it infused with magic. Much of his art was filled with messages of self-realization with belief in ones ability to reach the highest goals, and this Halloween Special encompasses his core principles:

“No matter what, the most powerful thing in the world is the human mind, and prayer, and belief in yourself and confidence and perseverance. No matter how many times you do it, you do it again, until it’s right. And always believe in yourself, and no matter whose around you that’s being negative or thrusting negative energy at you, totally block it off, because whatever you believe you become.” 

It was critical to infuse Michael’s own exceptionalism and magic into this Halloween special and of course, his music takes center stage throughout the fast-paced program.  To partner his iconic dance moves with his music, the director, Mark A. Z. Dippé procured the expertise of Jackson’s former choreographers, the brothers, Rich and Tone Talauega and Kevin Antunes.  Using 3D animation and high tech motion captures, Dippé was able “to bring Michael’s dancing to life in a very rich and deserving way.”

By viewing the Twitter hashtag #MJHalloween it is clear that overwhelmingly, the Michael Jackson fan base appreciated the efforts of the Estate, and all involved in the creation of this Michael Jackson Halloween Special –

Here’s a sampling:

What was particularly enjoyable was noticing all the iconic Michael Jackson bits throughout the program.  There are many delightful inferences to The Wiz/Wizard of Oz, and Captain EO-

Here’s some of the most obvious iconic Michael imagery.

HayMan – Nod to scarecrow Michael played in the Wiz. His trademark white Tshirt and black leather pants / red jacket with gold embellishments on collar. Character is shy but is transformed when dancing.

Gen. Meriwether- One white glove, plethora of Medals/ Military sash & epualettes- Character is a fearsome warrior, fighting against the repression of others.

Franklin Stein– Wore Smooth Criminal white jacket w blue armband/BAD buckle pants- Character is an innovator, inventor and highly intelligent scientist. 

Dangerous Moon- Hung over an Earth Song bridge

Conformulator– Machine using music to defeat evil / Captain EO same premise

Conformity– Wraps MJ in wings / Angel wraps MJ in wings Will You Be There

Maybe the most powerful line was the one from Gen. Meriwether – It really hit very close to the respect, protectiveness and love Michael had for his fans.

“Slander me if you must, but do not insult the honor my troops”

Paris Jackson Funding Puerto Rico Relief Through Father’s Estate.

We have always said Michael Jackson’s greatest Legacy are his children- They will be the ones who take up his banner of Philanthropy – They will be the ones who make sure the world understands what their father really was all about-  He traversed the world spreading love, peace and understanding. He created Heal the World foundation so that he could implement the mission he felt God had sent him to earth to complete –

It’s so gratifying to see Paris excited to venture into this realm and follow the footsteps of her beloved father to make a mark of her own. She announced her role as an activist when she accepted to be the new Ambassador for the Elizabether Taylor AIDS foundation.

Paris Jackson announced October 19, 2017, that she is working in concert with her father’s Estate are embarking on a Puerto Rico Relief project – On her instagram chat she explained how it came about to her followers-

TRANSCRIPT of Paris Jackson 10/20/2017  on Instagram Chat video regarding #PuertoRico Relief

“Hey, my dudes,

I was talking to my brother last night and he thinks I should really share this with you guys and when he went into depth as to the reason why I should, I completely totally agreed.

Um Basically, um, I know there is like, a good amount of conflicts with regards as to how you feel about my father’s Estate and how they handle certain things –

It’s not really my place to state an opinion about them – besides gratitude right now.
And I say mostly gratitude because there’s certain percentage of my fathers earnings that are specifically supposed to go to charity.

And I recently reached out to them with my team and we said

“Hey, ya’ll, we’re planning a trip to Puerto Rico to do AB and C and were wondering if ya’ll would like to help out with that”-

And they really jumped on it and helped us facilitate this whole trip and they were just really quick to help out, they were super willing, understanding and helpful.

And so, I’m really grateful that all this is being set up and we get to do this.

So yeah i just wanted to share this with you guys-

I’m super grateful to them but also just extremely, extremely grateful that we have the resources to do this as my father worked his whole life, his ass off, thru blood sweat and tears, his whole life, literally his whole life -ALL so things like THIS could get done, and that -HE made shit like this happen.

It’s fucking exciting that I get to be part of something bigger- All thanks to him

So my brother and I felt it important to share that with you guys.

At some point we will go into more depth as to what we are doing in Puerto Rico but for now I just wanted tto Share the gratitude love and the light and all that good shit –

it’s legit man – it’s real important ….

MJ Fans of NYC Honor Michael Jackson By Supporting Pajama Program

Screen Shot 2017-08-22 at 1.20.34 PMThere are the simplest of acts that many of us take for granted. Where we can lay down our head at night. What kind of warm, comfy pajamas are we going to wear. What books do we choose to read the children in our lives for their bedtime story. Simple acts we all take for granted.

For children who are in the foster care system, these simple acts are more like a dream deferred. Many children go to bed in their underwear and not knowing what pajamas are. Many are removed from the only home they know and place in foster care. Their “luggage” is usually a large garbage bag. Their entire world is in that bag and many times the clothes they have are the clothes on their backs. Their daytime clothes are the clothes they sleep in. Bedtime should be a restful peace time for every child, but for millions in America that is simply not the case. Children who don’t know a loving home environment or live in the streets that are cold and not safe. For the fans of Michael Jackson, this is not acceptable.

Screen Shot 2017-08-22 at 1.21.13 PM

Michael Jackson Fans of New York has vowed to do something about this. For the last seven years, we have chosen to honor Michael’s birthday by choosing the nationally renowned 501-3C charity the “Pajama Program”.  An organization that is dedicated to provide children with “loving, magical gifts that can offer a new reality.” The Pajama Program turns their words into direct loving action and changes the nights of children in need to those of sweet dreams.

We ask that Michael Jackson fans worldwide join us in this heartfelt crusade to help provide children with a restful, warm bedtime . Michael dedicated his life to encouraging us to “Heal the World” and it is in that generosity of that spirit; we carry on his legacy. It’s all for Love and Legacy. And isn’t that the ultimate test of Michael Jackson’s legacy, LOVE?

If you would like to join Michael Jackson fans of New York, please make your donation directly to the Pajama Program > pajamaprogram.org. Make sure you tell them your donation is in honor of Michael.

Screen Shot 2017-08-22 at 1.30.38 PMPajama Program was born from one simple question, posed by a child:

“What are pajamas?”

This was not a question from a child on a field trip to a museum, but from Maria, a young girl living in a shelter who was holding a pair of pajamas for the first time. When she finally understood that the pajamas were a gift, and that before bed she could change into them from the clothes she had worn all day, she asked happily,

“You mean I can keep these for the rest of my life?”

Screen Shot 2017-08-22 at 1.35.59 PMThat was back in 2001, when Genevieve Piturro, Pajama Program’s founder, discovered that the children she read to at a local shelter did not have a caring adult to tuck them into bed each night, let alone a pair of warm, comforting pajamas to change into or a storybook to enjoy before the night descended. Instead, the children she saw there were often relegated to sleeping on a cot or futon, two or three together, still wearing their clothes of the day.

Screen Shot 2017-08-22 at 1.20.55 PM

With bags full with new pajamas and storybooks, Genevieve returned to the shelter to ensure that all of the children there would enjoy a good night. And realizing that this ritual was missing from the lives of many children all across the country, she started Pajama Program to bring love and hope to them all in the form of a loving bedtime.
