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.

So Oprah has to use her TV show to do a good thing???

*****************************

Rosie O'Donnell's talk show started these audience give-aways before anyone else. And, this is good for ratings. The money comes out of the show's huge marketing budget and sponsor donations, not out of Oprah's pocket. It's a win-win situation for Oprah as well as the audience. If the Jackson's could figure out a way to use their kids to do this on Oprah, they would!

Wow, Mann and Melissa Johnson are making money off Katherine and Katherine hasn't figured it out yet. She and MJ3 are fish bait for these crooks.

Chairperson - Katherine Jackson

Just which HTWF are we talking about. Obviously, not the original one started by MJ, but the new one, their website clearly states that they have nothing to do with MJ. So, what's going on? Children at their age are very vulnerable. Not so sure if they have the best interest at heart of the children. I wish them well. All the best to PPB.

I wonder if the role of Chairperson (KJ) is a paid position. In order to give the foundation credibility, its to their benefit to pay KJ to come on board + to add more credibility ($$$$), they're making the kids board advisors. Somehow, I have the feeling that Howard Mann is in the midst of all these. JMO.

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

for the people who keep saying micheal had to hide them to proctect them from the media do you know how silly you all sound?

why had them sooo much?
hide them from what the world?
it wasn't just those white kids he was hiding
Micheal was hiding something about those children he didn't want to get out, thats exactly why he didn't like interviews, thats exactly why they never got to public school like other children. there is clearly something wrong with a blackman who pays millions of dollars for three white children.

@#20 Agreed totally misleading. MJ's children are beautiful,sweet,kind-hearted just like their dad
and want to carry on his work but they are being
mislead. Mrs. Jackson has been mislead she knows
Michael sued this group and would not want her
giving her funds to it imo,to promote her book.
The children need to know that this is not their
dad's Heal The World Foundation,and that is one
reason why the estate is suing shady mann,he is
using Mrs.Jackson.

No wonder debbie had to keep her mouth shut.
No wonder martin bashir feared for the children after filming that do***entry.
not only did Micheal lie about their paternity I'm now starting to believe that Micheal lied about raising them along with being their father, yeah sure they called him dad from time to time...but theres more to this....

Yes, Blanket and his brother and sister are very normal. Why people have to continue to be jackasses on these boards is just sad.

Anyway, hope you are doing well Siggi.

Yeah – and at the same time they call Michael a weirdo and a freak because he hid his kids' faces behind masks or scarfs.

Each single of their sick comments prove how right he was!

He knew very well what he was doing.
The nasty comments about the kids are very depressing. I can´t believe there is so much evil in people.
