The Michael Jackson Tribute Portrait is proud to announce that Michael’s portrait is finished! We want to extend our utmost gratitude to fans all over the world who are now a permanent part of Michael’s legacy by being a dot in his portrait. If you don’t already have a dot in the portrait, you can still sign up HERE and claim one of the dots already drawn.
We will be placing a small handful of special dots in Michael’s heart as a ceremonial completion. The last two dots will be given to Millie and Gavin Murray. They are two amazing kids who went through an unspeakable tragedy years ago when the car they were riding in was firebombed after their mother, Sheila Murray, refused a group of teenagers a ride to the local courthouse. As a result, a petrol bomb was thrown into the back seat of her car, where her children were sitting. Both kids endured horrific burns. Gavin lost his left ear as it melted from the heat. (You can read more about their story HERE.)
We were made aware of this family by Dr. Patrick Treacy. They live in Ireland. Michael really wanted to visit them when he was there but he wasn’t able to and it broke his heart. Now we are trying to bring Michael to them so that they may get dots in his heart.
They are the perfect people to get the last dots in Michael’s portrait because not only are we finally connecting these particular kids with him (which we’re certain Michael would have wanted) … but we’re also bringing some joy and our collective love and strength to these kids.
We believe Michael would have wanted children who are sick, underprivileged, or have gone through major struggles, to get the final dots. Therefore, this ceremonial completion inherently promotes Michael’s humanitarian legacy.
Millie and Gavin are very excited to be honored with the last dots and they wish to receive them in person. Therefore, we need your help to make that happen. We need to raise at least $1500.00 for travel expenses to get the artist, David Ilan, and the portrait to Ireland.
We are asking fans across the world to help us raise the funds to honor these children with the final dots in Michael’s portrait. 100% of the donated money will be used to fund the effort to bring Michael to Millie and Gavin. All donations will be used specifically for travel expenses.
Who better to get the final dots in Michael’s portrait than children he himself wanted to help?
“My mission is healing, pure and simple.” – Michael Jackson
Please help us bring Michael to Millie and Gavin by giving them the final dots in Michael’s portrait.
Any amount helps. $1, $5, $10. $100.
