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.

MJ most likely did

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

Why did most of the money come from Kate's book ? Is this just another way to promote it?

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.

TMZ.. This is not MJ's foundation this statement is misleading. Do the kids know that this foundation is not MJ's Heal the World Foundation? Why would they be on the board of any group that MJ sued? Are they trying to turn it into MJ's Heal the World?

If it was an f off sign, I hope it was for you and the few other sickos like you who post here to show just how ignorant you are and how Harvey loves bull s(((. Those children should be reading and hearing wonderful comments, not the rant of a person who was unsuccessful in growing up to be full human.

TMZ - Why don't you also print the statement released by the Michael Jackson ESTATE describing how Grandma and Mann are exploiting Michael's children for their own gain?

10,000 barely pays the Bills for the building they are in.They should go back and make a real donation. Not some Photo Op Donation. MJ wasn't a cheapskate and I don't think he would want his Kids to be either.

From above....why not more money???

You forget that Michael Jackson left 20% of his estate to charity --- 20%. Why did Grandma have these children working with one of THOSE charities instead of the fake Heal the World which just got an injunction from the court because they are ILLEGALLY connecting themselves to the estate and to Michael's name?

Instead Grandma rounds of a few bucks and sets up a charity event so that Michael's children can be seen as promoting this fraud Heal the World and the interviewer can show her book (another way she is ILLEGALLY using her son's name) on TV.

Michael already provided for children's charities --- do something for those children, Grandma, instead of flying in the face of the very people who are charged with taking care of YOU.

What a great example for the youth of today! Not everyone can fork over that much money, but you can volunteer your time and love to organizations. I've always said that his children seem very humble and loving. You've never heard that they are out of control or disrespectful. Maybe Katherine made them do this, but there's no harm in that! She's showing these kids that it is good to give back & to help those less fortunate.
