Michael Jackson's Death

Fans Send 10k Roses

to MJ's Gravesite

EXCLUSIVE

0625_michael_jackson_memorial_roses_launchOver 10,000 roses were sent to Michael Jackson's final resting place today -- marking his 3-year death anniversary -- all courtesy of some very devoted fans.

A MJ fan group based in L.A. tells TMZ ... they used social media sites to raise money from fans all over the world for the memorial project ... finally collecting over $30k.

All that green bought a lot of flowers ... over 10,000 roses were delivered to Forest Lawn Memorial Park in Glendale, CA today -- where the King of Pop was laid to rest in 2009 -- all to honor the late-singer on the anniversary of his death.

What's more -- we're told the roses will be put to good use and recycled after today ... over half will be sent to senior centers and other places where they can be used to make people happy.

Michael Jackson died June 25, 2009 ... he was 50.

THIS IS RIDICULOUS. 30K on flowers? Seriously? Why not take 30K and donate it to one of his charities (did he have any)? I'm sure those roses sitting in the LA heat are gonna look just wonderful tomorrow - NOT. MJ loved children (obviously) - why not give to a children's hospital?

I'm sick and tired of hearing all the negativity on Michael Jackson. Today is the day we are supposed to remember and celebrate the life of Michael Jackson, not bomb him with hateful and rude comments and name calling. Since some of you seem to be hell bent on calling Michael Jackson a pedophile, you know what, you're probably pedophiles yourselves!!! So why don't you keep your negativity to yourself, and let the MILLIONS upon MILLIONS of Michael Jackson fans celebrate his life and his music.

RIP Michael Jackson! Maybe now they will tell the truth about you. MJ trial was one of the biggest hoax in our justice system. He never was guilty. Make sure you headline that!

A beautiful gesture. As for the imbecile who mentioned that the money could have gone to food donations, maybe the imbecile does not know that fans have already funded one orphanage and fan dollars pay for alot of charitable acts-including re-forestation. We wanted to do something to show our respect for a humanitarian, clearly something the imbecile would not understand cause he/she is too full of hate and cannot see the truth.
