Our Common Threads Joined to Each Other
Come Together As a Worldwide Hug to the Jackson Family
Get Your Patch In A One-Of-A-Kind Patchwork Blanket
For Michael’s Children and His Mother
We are proud to announce an exciting new project called Wrapped in L.O.V.E. Our dot member Michelle Gold recently presented an idea to us to commemorate the first anniversary of Michael’s passing.
With YOUR participation, we are creating four unique patchwork blankets –one for each of Michael’s children and the fourth for his mother Katherine – which will be presented to them by June 25, 2010. The Tribute has a relationship with the Jackson family and so we will be able to guarantee that they will receive the blankets personally.
only are these blankets special gifts, they are also a way for us to
raise funds for Michael’s Tribute. Apart from some minor expenses, one
hundred percent of the proceeds from this project will be used to
support Michael’s Tribute Portrait and website.
the small price of $20, you will be able to buy a patch, in your name,
in the blanket of your choice. There are only 304 patches available per
blanket, so we have set a limit of one patch per person per blanket.
You may, however, buy a patch in more than one blanket if you choose to.
first name will be beautifully handwritten on your patch by our
talented patchwork volunteers who are making the blankets, and we will
create a registry for each blanket that will include your full name,
dot number, username and what country you are from. These registries
will accompany the blankets when they are presented. Michael’s family
will then have a record of everyone whose patch is sewn into their
particular blanket. You will be able to fill out this information when
you buy your patch from our online Store on the website.
are also giving everyone who purchases a patch the opportunity to send
a greeting card or note. These will also accompany the blankets and
should be addressed to whoever’s blanket you have purchased a patch in – Prince, Paris, Blanket or Katherine. You can mail your cards and notes to:
Michael Jackson Tribute Portrait
P.O. Box 280174
Northridge, CA 91328
include your full name, dot number, username and which blanket your
patch will be placed in. (Only those cards that have a corresponding
patch ordered will be delivered.)
everyone who gets a patch, you will be given a special Wrapped in
L.O.V.E. Badge, which will be prominently displayed on your profile. We
will also be posting photographs of the finished blankets on the
website and you can add these to your profile as well. This is our gift
to you in thanks for your support of this project for Michael’s mother
and children, the Tribute Portrait and website.
The last day to buy patches will be May 1.
This is to allow our volunteers time to complete the blankets in time
for delivery. Your patch is not placed in the blanket until you order
loved his fans, and through these gifts his children and mother,
Katherine, will see how much we love him back. When they wrap these
soft and warm blankets around them, they will know they are surrounded
by this love from all the fans, which has been sewn together with a Common Thread to give them a Worldwide Hug.
It is also a special opportunity for us to connect to each other
through our patches, as we have through our dots in Michael’s Portrait.
