    HELP BUILD THE MICHAEL JACKSON MUSIC ROOM AT THE GARDNER STREET SCHOOL

    Help us Continue Michael's legacy of Charitable Giving!
    Help build the Michael Jackson Music Room at the Gardner St. ELEMENTARY SCHOOL
    -- all Monies go DIRECTLY to the Gardner School Thank you!





    Gardner St. Elementary School is in need of several items as they are in the process of establishing a Michael Jackson Music IQ Room. The main item that they need is a projector which costs $3000.00.

    We met with Principal Kenneth Urbina at the School last week and promised him that the NYC fans will do the best we can to get this projector for the school. Once they have all the items they need, they will also have a small area in the back of the classroom set up as a Museum to honor Michael. We would appreciate any amount that you can donate to this project.


    Please send your check or money order to (NO PAYPAL):

    Thank you for this information.
    The Gardner School Michael Jackson Music IQ Room will be a very
    tangible Michael Jackson Memorial, and I will be sending in a donation.
    Merry Christmas everyone.
    God, I thank you for allowing Michael to continue to watch over his children:

    Prince Michael, Paris, and Blanket ("Bigi").

    I understand your feeling but I dont know if they are the same people as it was at the time though.

    That being said, I'd feel uncomfortable at giving money to a school in the US, when so many people are still struggling in the world to simply stay alive. That's just me.

    I wonder if this is something that the estate would get involved with...maybe use it as a "charitable" donation??

    Waw good news. This year when I was in LA a staff member showed me the signature posted above. I took a picture of it as well. I will certainly contribute to this cause.

    Ben I understand your point. Since the school removed the covering over Michael's name I have been giving them a donation for school supplies each year. I visited the school twice. Some people in the world need food and others need supplies. Some need clothes and others need protection. Some need kind words while others need shelter, and so on. There is much good to be done in the world, so I understand your choice to chose that which you see as more important.

    Im very sad you feel that way. I think maybe you are not aware of the FACTS.
    You are mistaken and must not have been around or paid any attention when we all rallied together to have The cover removed from Michael's name. The school is not jumping on any bandwagon. It is MJ fans that reached out to the school and have been helping to support these students in Michael's honor for the past couple years. These students nor the principle were not in any way responsible for MJs name being covered up. In fact Principle Urbina and his students were very instrumental in helping to getting the school board to uncover Michael's name.


    Principle Urbina and students Celebrate Michael Jackson's name being uncovered


    Michael would be very honored to help these students and have a music room in his honor. This means his legacy will be passed to all children who attend Gardner Elementary and they will also learn and be greatful that through his fans Michael is still generously giving to them. This is what Michael fans do to honor and continue his legacy ... We just cant be selfish, petty or vindictive in Michael's name.

    This schoold is not rich and most the children are from lower income families. We gladly help them
    and show them Just who Michael Jackson was and what he stood for and still does though us his fans

    I understand but it still seems to me that most of the projects in Michaels name are US focused. I'm not trying to argue, or criticizing anything, but again it bugs me to send donations to what is supposed to be the richest country in the world; like it would make me ill at ease if it was in Europe. Not that there are no poor people there but a music room seems very futile compared to food and vaccines to keep children alive. In my very humble opinion, Michael never asked for shrines, he begged us to change the world and help children. Now of course, if we were all millionaires, it would be different. But since we will probably have to choose where eventual donations go... Charity doesnt begin at home, it begins where it's most needed. Just me.

    No offense to anyone.

    The fact that Michael Jackson name was covered and that it took his death to finally get it uncovered with the help of MJ fans, alone says a lot.


    Having said that, I think it would be great, though my feelings are more similar to Ben's on this issue, with people, little children and even babies dying daily of malnutrition, I'm very uncomfortable giving a school in the US money, when I know the same money could be used to save people's lives in other parts of the world.

    Well MJ fans also support other charities to help feed hungry children. There is a MJ team giving to UNICEF for the horn of Africa. but I dont think that in any way says this is not a worthy cause also. US schools budgets are cut very low and they rely on contributions for music programs and such for the children. MJ gave to many causes including make a wish to bring children joy. But I do understand your feelings. I just dont want people to think this is frivilous. Its not

    I wouldnt call it frivolous, just not an emergency. As far as I know education is not a priority in lots of western countries. I work in a school, in a very poor neighborhood, and I wouldnt give them any money either, because I believe that's what my taxes should be used for.
    Again, if I didnt have to make a choice as to where the money I can spare goes, I would gladly donate. But until then, I'd rather focus on urgent issues, because one team donating to UNICEF is far from enough.

    It“s nice with a Michael Jackson music room,but what about his message about peace,love and equality?
    Will they discuss those things too?
    Anyway I feel there are only a few who will have access to the room.

    Michael talked and sang over and over again about children dying and he wrote help me, help the children.
    In children I include animals too.
    It“s not always possible to donate in Michael“s name but I can make a difference for some people and animals.
    "How much did I really know about life on earth? What responsibility did I feel for creatures outside my little space?
    How could I lead my life so that every cell of living matter was also benefited?" Michael Jackson

    **sigh** Is the Gardner Music Room the ONLY project/charity you've heard of since MJ's passing?

    MJ fan community raised money for Africa, Haiti, Japan in 2011....

    You can never please everyone. MJ knew this first hand....


    I think a MJ Music Room at Gardner is a great idea. I will definitely support it...Like Paris said in her Ellen interview, it's not all about academia, kids need other ways to express themselves &
    develop new talents

    It's not about pleasing someone. I believe those who want to donate to this project can do it, even if others dont.

    The school only uncovered his name after protests.back in 03 they said they would uncover it when he was aquitted. never happened. ontop of the good ole innocent until provern guilty mantra. they then jumped on the bandwagon post 09. each to their own but imo theres far more deserving groups out there. especially ones that didn't
    kick mj when he was down
