    I dont post much lately but i had to in defence of these beautiful hearted people who really do honour MJ! I thank you from the bottom of my heart for doing this for Michael especially this year! Sorry i could not get my paypal account sorted in time but wish to say its amazing the army of love that had purchased these beautiful roses for the world to see that we will never give up on Michael.

    Huggs go out to all the Mj fans tomorrow is the date in 2009 i lost my true idol and nothing has been the same since! Some people just dont get it , its like mine and so many others heart was cut in two and its not healing anytime soon!

    God, I thank you for allowing Michael to continue to watch over his children:

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

    Lightbulb Still No receipts?

These Freedom roses are grown specifically for the One Rose campaign each year and they are separate to the "every rose is $1.00 if you buy 100" deal. They are long stem roses and they are perfection, in terms of colour, shape and fragrance. What's more, they have cost $3.00 each, ever since the campaign first began and therefore have not been subject to inflation at all, for a decade. They are re-gifted to worthy causes, people in need of cheer, charities and the children's part of Forest Lawn on the 26th June. Volunteers give up their own time to collect the roses, unpack them and place them at Forest Lawn and they return the next day to gather them up and take them to other places around L.A. If you don't want to spend a few dollars on roses for Michael, then don't; but please do not cast aspersions on the integrity of the organisers of this beautiful campaign with your flawed maths and mean-spiritedness.

    I know it is a GOOD cause, but from the accounting point of view they have $33K profit left. They buy their roses from Passion Growers and their website sell only one rose that's "perfect in term of colour, shape and fragrance". Check their website:
    https://www.passionroses.com/shop/

    They should spread the MJ Love around by maybe giving this MJJ Forum $1,200/year so it can run. (I donate money to this forum too like the OneRose4MJJ.)

    At Passion Growers, they sell 12 roses for $40, 100 roses for $100, so if you buy 18,757 roses I think you get a great discount (so maybe 75¢ a rose).
    The Paypal fees are only 3% so that's only $1,688 and the delivery by truck is under $1K (I think way less).

    Here's the accounting math:
    18,757 roses raised x $3 = $56,271 - $18,757 rose costs = $37,514 - $1,688 Paypal fee = $35,826 - $1K delivery? - $1K pottery = $33,826 left over. Where that money go? The volunteer came and work for free, so they Paypal owner keep a lot of money for themselves, maybe for airline tickets to go there and for hotels and meals then to Las Vegas.

    From the accounting point of view, we want receipts and proofs like we want proofs from Wade Robson and James Safechuck.

    FTR, why did you wait until THIS year to whine about this situation? Why not the other years that you bought a rose? Something just doesn’t fit. Again, why do you complain THIS year and not the other years? Did you give an extraordinary amount this year? Is this why you conveniently waited until THIS year to whine and complain? Btw, it is an insult to equate this to the proof that we need from the liars/scam artists/extortionists/ child porn actors Wade Robson and Safechuck.

    Yes you absolutly choosed the wrong moment for doing that and a public forum is maybe also the wrong place.
    You should write the people from the service this messages.
    I think much of the rest of the money will go to cherity!
    The people of this service are passionate Michael Jackson Fans not some one elses Fans so they will surely not take advantage of his name, betrayed his beloved fans to make themselfe rich!

    The roses look beatiful! It will make MJ smile!

    Don`t say "WE want receipts" I am perfectly fine with One rose for MJ. And to compare Fans to Robson and Safechuck is disgusting

    Thank you, everyone, for making this a positive and uplifting thread (apart from one member) and thank you for your support. We will have a new thread for the One Rose 4 MJ campaign, next year.
