Partners for the Planet: The MJTP & A Million Trees for Michael
August 17, 2010 [Updated June 2012]
We all know that Michael cared about our planet. From "Planet Earth" (Dancing the Dream) to "Earth Song," to his pleas in This Is It, his gentle message is unmistakable: Earth is our home and it's up to US to save it.
We are pleased to announce that we have partnered with A Million Trees for Michael, a group of MJ supporters who share our love and concern for the planet, encouraging us all to plant trees in Michael's name.
If you donate to American Forests to plant trees for Michael, please come back and leave a comment here to let me know, so we can assign a Michael's Angels - A Million Trees for Michael Badge to your profile. Please help us fill this site up with these badges! [Please see June 2012 update below.]
With love for the planet and all life on it,
[Updated August 20, 2010: I just realized in looking at my Aug. 18th receipt that they include a download link for you to download a digital certificate, confirming your donation (they will also mail you one if you request it when placing your donation). I just downloaded mine and am including a snapshot of it here for you so you know what your certificate from American Forests will look like. It will show the date you download it. I think this will look quite nice in a frame by all my Michael stuff! :)]
For other ways you can help continue Michael's work, please visit our recently updated Michael’s Angels page and share your story (thanks to all Angels who commented on our previous Michael's Angels page, too. Your stories and photos are still available, with the old and new pages linking back to each other). You might just inspire someone else to do good.
***UPDATE: June 2012 – Our current Michael’s Angels badges, the first of which has been active for more than 2 and a half years, will be retired at the end of this month (badges assigned to members will remain on their profiles). While the badges are being retired, the efforts to carry on Michael Jackson’s humanitarian legacy will not! We encourage you to continue to support the charities, programs and initiatives we’ve highlighted so far in our Michael’s Angels program. We encourage you to keep volunteering and supporting charities that speak to your heart. Keep helping others; keep protecting the planet; keep doing what you do to make the world a better place and being an example to others, encouraging them to help heal the world.
