MJ's Kids Give Away $10,000 to Honor Dad

2/26/2011 10:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Michael Jackson's children definitely have the bug -- the one that makes you give away large sums of money -- because they just helped make a $10,000 donation to one of MJ's favorite charities.

Earlier this week, Prince, Paris, and Blanket presented a check for $10K to the L.A. Housing Corporation -- a group that provides shelter for homeless families. Sources tell us Michael used to take his kids to volunteer with the group.

We're told the massive chunk o' change came from grandma Katherine Jackson's memorabilia biz.

MJ's heirs made the donation on behalf of his Heal the World Foundation. All three of them joined the group's Youth Board of Advisors last year.

Go somewhere else to spew your nonsense, mediajerk.

It's real clear you are here to shock and awe and redirect people to your own pile of nasty crap. In case you think nasty comments float, look at the profound drop Perez Hilton has endured because of his comments and website.

Paris is flashing a peace sign and that's damn clear. Stop trying to make it something it's NOT.

Michael would be incredibly proud of them doing this. He'd be grateful to his mom as well.

He was a fabulous dad and taught them the best of morals and manners. It shows big time.

Good job dad.

Over a year ago Prince said at the 2010 Grammy Awards:

"Our father was always concerned about the planet and humanity.
Through all his hard work and dedication he has help through many charities and donated to all of them. Throughout all his songs his message was simple: love. We will continue to spread his message and help the world."

Paris was on the stage with Prince when he spoke these words, and pictures form that event show Lionel Richie with Michael's children, including Blanket.

So if Jackson's growing kids want to help the world instead of snort or drink their way into oblivion like many of their North LA neighbors--why not?!

We need more good examples from children out there directing attention to the world's most vulnerable.

Bindi Irwin is following in the footsteps of her famous conservationist parents. Shouldn't the kids whose father received the accolade from the 2000 Guinness Book of World Records as the star who had given to the most charities, be able to follow their father's example, too?

They had their coming out party on Oprah already. It's time to see if they can take the light of their father's love and serve even more people with it. With recent suggestions that the US government is considering cutting the foreign aid budget, we have to seriously question whether we adults have our priorities right.

Giving to the homeless is what more children should be doing. The least weird thing a person can do is serve others.

You can tell MJ was a great father...he raised them to be caring, respectful, and sweet, just like him. It's so nice to see them carrying on his amazing humanitarian work.

Love and miss you forever MJ.

ACTUALLY WAS KATHERINE WHO MAKE THEM GO TO L.A. HOUSING CORPORATION AS IT HAS BEEN SAID YESTERDAY, WHILE NOW 'THEIR SOURCES' ARE SAYING IT WAS MICHAEL OF COURSE!! AND HOWEVER FOR CONVINCING THEM THEY ARE DOING CHARITIES ON BEHALF OF THEIR FATHER, SO THEY CAN EXPLOIT THEM BETTER, USING MICHAEL'S NAME!! OBVIOUSLY EVERYTHING IS BEING MADE ON BEHALF OF THAT FRAUDOLENT HEAL THE WORLD FOUNDATION AND WITH THIS THEY CAN GAIN MORE 'CREDIBILITY' AND SO MONEY AND NO MATTER WHETHER THIS ORGANIZATION HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH MICHAEL AND HAS BEEN SUED!!! AFTER ALL, GREEDY KATHERINE AND HER SHADY PARTNER DON'T NOTHING WITHOUT A OWN ADVANTAGE!!! SHAMEFUL!!!

What is wrong with these kids? They are broke! Their father got them into debt and they are giving away what little they have? Screw college I guess.

Nice gesture and I hope they continue to do acts of kindness. One thing the bothers me is that the MJ estate has reaped hundreds of millions since his death. Perhaps the next time the contibution will be $10,000 from each of the children or a blanket $100,000.

Why is Paris flipping off the camera?

That ain't the peace sign, that's for sure. The peace/victory sign is two fingers but with the palm of the hand showing outwards. The flip off sign is two fingers with the palm of the hand showing towards you. She definitely has the palm of her hand towards her. Since these kids have been so sheltered, maybe someone needs to show them the correct way to use hand gestures.
