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.

You can say what you want about MJ, but he raised some beautiful, good-hearted children.

Honorable intentions but this is NOT Michael's Heal the World Foundation! Katherine needs to tell the Estate lawyers to re-open the charity.
I feel sorry and frustrated with the Jackson family.Michael's loss is horrible and hard to deal with but the family's actions towards his estate is also horrible.The family is in over their heads in any business dealings.They do not have the education,nor the practical financial business and law experience to be making the deals they have been making.

Read the news. These kids have gone multiple times to this shelter and given toys and such. The 10,000 was not them being cheap, but shows the the estate executors by comparison gives them little cash to spend, pay of debt but limiting their actual income. In contrast, the two estate administrators made 20 to 25,000,000 on the one Sony deal last year.

Before we starting putting down people for doing what we think is not enough, perhaps we should try and figure out why John Branca is keeping this family cash poor and lining his pocket with tens of millions of dollars.

So, they needed a photo op to do a good thing? Why couldn't they have done it without media attention if their hearts were really in the right place? The kids seem to be in the media quite a bit lately.

COME ON TMZ - STOP SUCKING UP TO KATHERINE AND MANN AND OTHER GREEDY JACKSONS ALL THE TIME. SHOW SOME GUTS AND BE HONEST LIKE ALL THE OTHER SITES CALLING MANN A PIMP!

YOU KNOW THAT KATHERINE IS BEING USED AND MANN IS HELPING HER EXPLOIT THE KIDS WITH A "CHARITY" THAT WAS SAID BY A FEDERAL COURT TO BE FRAUDULANT.

EVER OCCUR TO YOU THAT IF PRINCE GETS A PRODUCING JOB, ITS THE ADULTS AROUND HIM WHO WILL BE ON THE PAYROLL AND GET MONEY OUT OF THE ESTATE.- IE MANN

MANN IS THE REP FOR HEAL THE WORLD AND TAKES A HUGE PAY FOR IT.

THIS IS WHY THE KIDS LAYWER Margaret Lodise IS BEING CALLED IN.

AND DIDN'T YOU HEAR THAT WEIRD STATEMENT BY KATHERINE WHILE SHE WAS OBVIOUSLY PIMPING THE KIDS TO POTENTIAL DIRECTORS AND PRODUCERS - "PARIS LIKES TO DRESS UP IN LITTLE WAITRESS COSTUMES" - ICK!!!!!!!! EVEN PARIS LOOKED HUMILIATED

STOP THE EXPLOITATION.

@ Tina Beasley.
Look at their history with the Jacksons since MJs death, before you comment.
Also, I'm not a Branco PR person, I'm an MJ fan who read the facts. Why do you think all the fans sites are screaming for Janet to step in and stop Katherine from exploiting the kids.

READ Up on it.

Alert!!!! This is NOT Michael's Heal the World Foundation. This is something a woman named Melissa Johnson operates out in the desert. CBS News did a really good investigation of it right after Michael died saying it misrepresented itself as an official Michael charity. TMZ even wrote about this when the Estate got an injunction against them http://www.tmz.com/2010/04/27/michael-jackson-heal-the-world-foundation-copycat-estate-injunction-charity/

These 3 little kids did more than some other people in High power offices did in the past 3 Years!!!!!All Promises of a Better America was a lie !!! The Unemployment Numbers are higher than the public are told. Also, a lot of unemployed Citizens are now on Welfare. Numbers can easily be fixed to please the public. Don't believe anything and everything you read.I love these 3 little kids who are trying to make this world a better place !!!!!

What is wrong with these kids? They are broke! Their father got them into debt and they are giving away what little they have? Posted at 4:17 AM on Feb 26, 2011 by mija

You don't need to be rich to donate money to charities and help others. Michael Jackson donated 300 million dollars to charities around the world. Yet he was millions in debt. But God is going to make him a very rich man in Heaven for all his good deeds.
