MJ Living Legacy Project

The Legacy Project

“I respect the secrets and magic of nature. That’s why it makes me so angry when I see these things that are happening, that every second, I hear, the size of a football field is torn down in the Amazon. I mean, that kind of stuff really bothers me. That’s why I write these kinds of songs, you know. It gives some sense of awareness and awakening and hope to people. I love the planet; I love the trees. I have this thing for trees – the colours and changing of leaves. I love it. I respect those kinds of things. I really feel that nature is trying so hard to compensate for man’s mismanagement of the planet. Because the planet is sick, like a fever. If we don’t fix it now, it’s at the point of no return. This is our last chance to fix this problem that we have, where it’s like a runway train. And the times has come, this is it. People are always saying: ‘They’ll take care of it. The government’ ll–Don’t worry, they’ll.’ They who? It starts with us. It’s us. Or else it’ll never be done… We have four years to get it right. After that it would be irreversible. Let’s take care of the planet.”

Michael Jackson

The project aims to give honour to the biggest entertainer of all time. Annually, to commemorate MJ, an apple tree is usually planted; this came to be not only because MJ’s nickname was Apple head but also to combat deforestation in Amazon.

So, the name, MJ Living Legacy Project, is a connotation of what the whole project stands for. MJ stands for Michael Jackson; living represents the tree being birthed to life, and legacy implies carrying on with MJ’s legacy to save the planet.

As such, all fans worldwide are welcome on the 25th of June every year to plant an apple tree. There is no need to donate money, as we are not a charity foundation. What you need to execute the action is to buy a plant from your florist and plant it either on your balcony or garden.

You also check with your florist to make sure those plants are the best ones to plant around that period. It’s possible that you’d also need to pick a grown plant and not a struggling one to ensure survival. This is dependent on where you live.

Ever since the year 2009, we have sought the best possible ways to commemorate the legendary Michael Jackson. Some of them include paper lanterns and sky lanterns, but we discovered they were posing a danger to the animals and our environment.

However, with the latest project, we ensure that we keep the planet safe, not endangering plants or flowers or increasing fire risk. But they are largely making a difference in the world.

Annually, we ensure that we post pictures of all these activities, so do well to send us yours alongside your name and your county of residence. You can always send us a mail or post on social media and tag us.
