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.

Are you kidding? In L.A., $10,000 is lunch money. And with the money the estate brings in every year, the Jacksons should be ashamed and embarrassed to give away that little amount of money.

Ces grands enfants qu'ils sont cools. MJ did a excellent job with them when he was alive. MJ a fait un excellent travail avec eux quand il était vivant.

Who care`s about the child molesters kids, they`re not famous, have done nothing to earn any fame. They`re just the kids, let them earn their own way to fame. It still blows my mind how many people would be outraged at a drugged up child molester living in their neighborhood. But if it`s MJ then it`s ok, any person that defends him is just as sick as he was.

And as a parent you can tell 3 children :"Your dad is burning in hell "

Wow, real classy,you must feel good now.

My thoughts are with YOUR children , being raised by a parent as you,the future doesn`t looks nice for them.

A few of you here are nothing more than little bitter whiners. Comments like yours are the reason more celbs don't give to charity.

It's none of your business how much someone decides to give of their own money.

Insead of blasting people (especially kids) who actually gave something (even if you don't agree with the amount) and nitpicking the motive, fill us in on how much you gave.

You are proof that your own parents did a piss poor job in raising you. You lazy cowards hide behind your keyboards and take shots at children and senior citizens.

don't hang that tag on the jacksons. They do not profit from michael's estate like the executors do. mrs. jackson and the kids receive a monthly allowance for themselves. mrs. jackson gave that money from her own business.
granted the executors are supposed to support michael's 39 charites. i don't see branca and mcclain making a big splash about having donated a dime to any of them. only the knock off cd and cheesy video of amature dancers.

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

Interpretation: That $10K came from Mrs. Jackson memorabilia business. Not the Michael Jackson estate.

The numbers change regarding profits for the estate. The current number is at $310,000,000.00 for 2011 versus the reported $790 million to $1billion for the 1st anniversary of michael's passing in 2010. Don't forget Michael gave away over $300,000,000.00 during his life time.

Wouldn't it be lovely and brutally honest if he Jackson STOPPED pretending they are not dysfunctional. It would be productive if Michael Jackson's children lived with a younger biological parent. Perhaps their biological Mother or biological Father.

Any woman who asked her grandchildren to vacate because of MONEY and ALLOWED a man to abuse her children is UNFIT to raise another generattion.
