Angel in Need - Valerie M...and Arnie in Heaven
Legacy Files September 12, 2010 [Most recent update: October 31, 2010: Arnie has returned home to Heaven, and Valerie M. has hopefully found a new place to live] As one of Michael’s Angels, we begin to realize the enormous undertaking we have placed upon our shoulders in carrying on his legacy. So many things need to be done and changed, and so much help is needed that thinking about where to start can be a little daunting. Sometimes when looking at the different ways we can contribute, we don’t always see that the opportunity to help someone is closer to home than we realize.Valerie M. is blind, and in December of 2009, contacted our then-Director of Operations & Administration/Member Relations, also named Valerie, inquiring how she could sign up for her dot.  Even with access to technology that allows her to “read” things online, the technology doesn’t work well with some applications, so help would be needed.  MJTP’s Valerie worked with Valerie...
Bethany, Charlie Chaplin and Michael Jackson
July 24, 2010MJ fans we have an opportunity to help a young girl named Bethany who is working to raise money for a U.K. children’s hospice in Wetherby, West Yorkshire, England called Martin House. It was brought to my attention by dot member MJsHeart, and as she said, "this has Michael written all over it."Bethany decided to create a short film (yes, she calls it that) dressed up as Charlie Chaplin, the legendary silent-movie comic that Michael loved so dearly. She added the song "Smile" (Michael’s favorite song) to the video. Unfortunately, a copyright claim was made and she was forced to take the song off of the video, so this very smart young girl decided to make it into a silent movie instead.As MJsHeart said in her email to me, and I agree with her, "I really believe Michael would have reached out to her if he were here." Since he is not, we must do it in his name!Please visit the Just Giving website to view her video and if you feel inspired to do so, please make a...

Meet Cindy, an Angel for the Elderly
Legacy Files August 10, 2010In Memory of My Friend Cindy: One of Michael’s AngelsBy: Gina Odell (GinaA)Tribute Team AssistantMy friend Cindy Elliott-Park passed away on July 27, 2010, at age 55.  Cindy wasn’t well known.  She wasn’t rich.  But she had a huge heart that opened itself to help in her own special ways.  I have been thinking over the past weeks since her death that I wanted to honor her publicly in some way.  I think Cindy was an angel on Earth in so many ways that can be wonderful examples of what kinds of service we can do in spite of any life challenges.Shortly after we first met, Cindy told me that she contracted a viral infection that damaged her endocrine system at aged two and she was left with type 1 diabetes as well as other endocrine malfunctions. This condition was not discovered until she was 17 years old and had lived for years with various health issues. She took great care of herself and was one of the most positive...
