Did you know? Congenital heart disease is the world's most common major birth defect, affecting one in every 120 children? Ninety percent of those newborns are in areas of the world where appropriate medical care is inadequate or unavailable. Rheumatic fever & other infectious diseases continue to damage the hearts of millions of youth throughout much of Asia, Africa & Latin America.
"Children show me in their playful smiles the divine in everyone.
This simple goodness shines straight from their hearts.
This has so much to teach... Being with them connects us to
the deep wisdom of life, which is everpresent and only asks
to be lived. Now, when the world is so confused and its problems
so complicated, I feel we need our children more than ever.
Their natural wisdom points the way to solutions that lie,
waiting to be recognized, within our own hearts." ~ MJ
Throughout his life, Michael Jackson gave millions of dollars to children's charities, donated toys and necessities to hospitals and orphanages, paid for lifesaving operations and was a consistent and loving spokesperson for child welfare across the globe. He asked us, his fans, and all the people of of the world to love the children as our own, to care for them and to protect and brighten their futures.
One of his dearest wishes was the creation of Michael Jackson Children's Hospitals. While we as a fan community continue to work toward that and other beautiful goals as part of his legacy, let us continue looking into our hearts and at the world through the lens of love. Let us see how and where we can help a child today, right now. It is with this belief that MajorLovePrayer.org and our friends have begun fundraising for Children's Heartlink. We also find it wonderfully fitting to the global prayer each month on the 25th to send out a major love ... "healing hearts worldwide"! Thank you and much L O V E! ♥
