The most obvious and well-known meaning of the red rose is deep love and affection and symbolizes true love that would stand the test of time. Staunchly promising affection that is forever riding high is what the red rose means. The red rose denotes a true love that is stronger than thorns and can outlive all obstacles.
Michael Jackson obstacles were great but he persevered and amid his trial and tribulations he received many flowers which he accepted with love and gratitude that he always had in his heart.
Whether it was two dozen or one single bud, he understood the feelings behind each bloom and the power of this demonstration of LOVE.
It is truly a beautiful thing that the OneRose4MJJ annual campaign continues to send Michael these flowers of love from the entire MJ global family whose hearts are filled with respect and only love for Michael. Most, cannot be at Holly Terrace personally but wish to spread the love of Michael with these lovely roses to let him know they are with him.
A new expression of our love for Michael is being offered to people who feel flowers don’t necessarily show their feelings as much as a donation to charity in Michael’s name might. The OneRose4MJJ group has three charities that they promote year round – Please read about each one of these charities in detail via these links on their website. UNICEF, American Vitiligo Research Foundation, and St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital
In cooperation with MJJJusticeProject, Stop Global Airwave Abuse will be giving heartfelt pledges and are encouraging any other groups or individuals to pledge a certain amount of monies for every 1000 roses sent to Michael with all the love attached to each stem.
The amount of the pledge is totally up to the discretion of the giver but we capping it at an amount that is affordable is advisable because we don’t know how many roses will be purchased and we have hopes to exceed last years, 10,477 count. SGAA and MJJJP have agreed to donate $50 each for each incremental count of 1000 roses, both of us will cap out at $600 (12X50), which is a total of 12,000 roses and $1200 to be distributed to the charity we designate on OneRose4MJJ donations links below:
We encourage other groups who wish to support Michael’s mission in life which was to help children through acts of charity and research of medicine and immunization throughout our world, to join us in this endeavor. The massive amounts of roses sent to Holly Terrace is not only an expression of love from each fan but also a great display to the world that this man, our beloved brother, influenced a mindset of global brotherhood, tolerance and acceptance.
If you are interested, please leave a comment here with contact information, amount pledged per 1000 roses and capped amount and we will add your name to our list of Pledgees.
