FAN INITIATIVE HISTORY
Right after Micheal's funeral, the Michael Jackson Fans of Southern California on Facebook (MJFSC) began making the extraordinary and loving commitment to accept mail from MJ fans around the world and deliver those items to Forest Lawn Glendale on the third day of each month.
This date was chosen to commemorate the anniversary of Michael's funeral and entombment there on Sept. 3, 2009.
On April 26, 2010, differences between charter members of MJFSC resulted in a parting of ways between some core members and the creation of a new Facebook page titled The Official Michael Jackson Fans of Southern California plus a companion website at MJFSC.org.
Please visit their websites via links above for current mailing addresses and additional news & information.
SUNFLOWERS FOR MICHAEL
Another wonderful initiative that I highly recommend is Sunflowers For Michael administered by Sandy Lee Scott. This awesome group has been delivering fresh sunflower arrangements to Michael on a monthly basis every fourth Friday since May 13, 2010 "in order to allow his fans a way to be close to him and hopefully bring some kind of closure and peace to their heart."
Along with gorgeous flower arrangements, they also deliver a collective card with personal messages from fans who have donated to the flower fund. If you'd like to participate, please visit their website at SunflowersForMichael.net for additional information and to see their stunning archive of photos and videos which document each delivery.
Planning to pay your respects to Michael? Read this post...
Please note: per the Jackson Family, you must be accompanied by a Jackson family member to gain access inside Holly Terrace to visit Michael's final resting place in person -- NO EXCEPTIONS.
Fans are allowed to visit the outdoor patio area and leave flowers and other mementos. Security will deliver items after the mausoleum and park closes.
Please do not block entry to the Holly Terrace doors. There are families with loved ones also interred inside the Great Mausoleum and they need to have respectful, unencumbered access. Thank you for your cooperation!
