The charities #OneRose4MJJ supports all have legal status as a charity and provide a means for fans to donate directly to the charity…no middle man.
Our Charities are the following:
- UNICEF: http://inside.unicefusa.org/goto/onerose4mjjdonate

- AVRF(American Vitiligo Research Foundation): http://www.avrf.org/index.htm -Please Note: You will have to scroll down and select the Rose Link for donations in Michael’s honor.
Last year, as many of you may recall, #OneRose4MJJ used the roses sent to Michael in a gesture to pay it forward. On June 26th, various buckets of the roses that were sent to Michael were taken to battered women’s shelters, elderly homes, and even to Lullaby Land and Babyland at Forest Lawn. The plan is to do the same this year as well.
In addition, #OneRose4MJJ has partnered with the MJJJustice Project and Stop Global Airwave Abuse to further use our gesture of love as a means to pay it forward. For every 1,000 roses purchased, MJJJustice Project and Stop Global Airwave Abuse will donate to our three charities. continuing Michael’s long legacy of humanitarianism!
Please visit MJJJustice Project’s blog for information on how to join in on this act of paying it forward!
