STATEMENT ABOUT THE VARIOUS FAN PROJECTS TO FUND & BUILD A MICHAEL JACKSON CHILDREN'S HOSPITAL
FROM THE MJ ONLINE TEAM
The Estate can only pass on to fans "is that any statement from Ms. Kunesh indicating 'that they are in current and promising negotiations with the Estate to get approval for their project' or similar, is inaccurate.'"
The Estate also asked that fans please re-read a previously released statement regarding charities and the Michael Jackson Estate:
"We all know how much Michael cared about children and children's charities, among his many causes, and we also know that many of Michael's fans want to honor him by making charitable donations or volunteering their time to help others. We have received many inquiries from concerned and caring fans looking for information to help them in making their choices in this regard.
Although we are not at liberty to provide any details at the present time, we can say that the Executors are very much looking forward to sharing with the fans (and the world at large) the way in which they intend to implement Michael's wishes under his will to have a certain portion of his estate benefit children's charities. The process is underway but there are many steps that have to be taken before the announcement can be made. Bear with us, keep your faith, commitment and patience.
Just know that this is an important concern and focus for the Estate, and to this point, there are no "Estate-authorized" charities. The Estate will officially announce any organizations that it will be endorsing when the determination has been made.
Again, thank you for your support and passion. It’s critical to Michael’s continuing legacy that he have the fans in his corner, supporting the Estate as they work to continue to share Michael’s art with future generations."
