As we have mentioned setting up a new website:


Quote from: "badkolo"
I think souza has a great idea but it cant be done on this site itself, so as to not impede  this progress I have a Idea.

We can open a Sub Site, There can be a main header/gfx/description etc..
Then a signature list. Each person that donates gets there Name on the Army of L.O.V.E list. The list will be only for the ones that donated.
A specific charity or foundation can be chosen, legaly easier to choose one specific charity or foundation that is verified.
The money that is donated which can be 1 dollar and beyond will go into a special escrow foundation.charity account. It will be overseen by The Escrow company so no Hanky panky can happen in any way and no legal issues can be brought.
Once the Goal is achieved at whatever number that is set(ie, $5000) from the donations which will be shown on top of the signatures then the escrow will announce that money has been sent to the charity/foundation everyone chose to donate to. then a new charity can be chosen from that point on and it just continues.

What ya think.

I realized that I posted 2 domain names that were still available and that if the wrong person would read it, it would be gone. I therefore decided to register the domain www.michaelsarmyoflove.com. I am not sure if you guys agree with the domain name, but I think it's perfect and if you don't like it, I know other ways to use it.

Let me know what you think. We can start from here and we still need volunteers to manage the new website.

Don't get me wrong - I think it's a great idea and I love the name too but I have a couple of questions.

Does this make http://www.michaelsarmyoflove.com an organization, charity, foundation, or business? If yes, then does that automatically make you, Badkolo, and Mo the President, VP, and Treasurer? Are there taxes, legal issues, or anything else that has to be covered? And, is it blind trust that all the money will be accounted for? Just wondering how setting up something like this is different than Heal The World or one of those...

No, I only registered the domain name, before it's gone. I just own a domain name now. It's not a company or foundation and it's not the purpose that one of us is going to manage the donation! That is why Badkolo pointed out the escrow foundation charity account. I had never heard of it, so I will have to ask him exactly what it means, but I am in no way going to manage the $$, I guess the purpose of that account is that they manage it and will transfer the money to the charity we chose when the goal is reached. This is just a registration of the domain and we need to work on from here.

I'd like to add that this new site will not be a foundation, but a website with articles which we all choose to publish. An educational site that will debunk bad journalism, pay attention to charity, spread Michael's message etc. One of the ideas is to support one charity at the time with donations, verified charity foundations. As I understand it (but I would have to ask Badkolo to be sure) is that with that escrow account we can collect our donations, escrow will manage it until we reached the goal (for example: our goal was $5.000 to the Make-A-Wish foundation, and as soon as that goal is reached, escrow will transfer the money directly to Make-A-Wish, so they will receive $5.000 from Michael's Army Of Love, and not all donations seperately. That way we donate as a group, instead of individuals. After that goal is reached, we can set up a new goal for a new charity.

I hope I made sense and I will ask Badkolo if I understood that right when I talk to him.

As with traditional escrow, Internet escrow works by placing money in the control of an independent and licensed third party in order to protect both buyer and seller in a transaction. When both parties verify the transaction has been completed per terms set, the money is released.

Thank you for the explanation. Also ask how much of a cut this escrow takes as I'm sure they won't be doing this for free. The concept is great...

Keep in mind that The Escrow charges for their service, so more than $5000 needs to be donated to in fact donate $5000 to a charity we selected.

I'm waiting for all the financial details about how it will work, but it sound like a good idea. I know it's difficult to represent ourselves as a group, not being a foundation, and more difficult to manage money out of such a group. I hope something secure and trustable can be made.

Yes, and of course that needs to be paid, but in this case we know for sure the money will really be donated to the foundation. Of course one of us could do it for free, I know I could and I know I am trustworthy, but you can't know that. An independent third party is the best option in this case.

Souza, I am happy with the name. In fact it is perfect. And in my opinion, if we have to pay  an amount or fee to keep it all more than above board but also appearing to all to be legit, then so be it.

I agree - for the sake of liability its best to keep it in the hands of neutral parties who make it their business to know the laws, etc., on this sort of stuff.

I agree with RK- if it can be shown to be legit. Even though many of us contribute to charities more than we did before June 25, it's weighed on my mind how our group would go to the next level to "make the change" and represent Michael Jackson at the same time. I hope it's made known to Make a Wish, etc. that the money is being given on behalf of Michael Jackson. If we just use the domain name Michael could be anyone. I think that is important because I am giving my money on behalf of Michael Jackson, not just Michael. I hope this makes sense.

Blessings.

I think the domain name is perfect (either Michael or MJ's armyoflove) and I'm glad that it will be an educational site that draws attention to  how the media deliberately misleads us and to spread Michael's message.  The forum here itself will be a great source of information for putting some of these articles together to help debunk a lot of the "news" stories out there.  The New World Order and Global Mind Control subforum for example.  I think a lot of people immediately dismiss conspiracy theories before even reading or listening what they're really about which is why I think debunking articles with facts will be much more effective.  Most people have common sense and will be able to recognize for themselves that something is up, that somethings not right.  When people finally realize this for themselves, THEN they will start looking deeper and suddenly, the conspiracy theorists don't seem so crazy after all.  Maybe it would be a good idea to go through some of our threads, collect the best information and thoughts given and put it all together in a coherent article to debunk a particular story.  

And by doing this from a place of love, new people to the new site will be less hostile and more open to receiving new information.

    • Exploring The Hoax
I have been turning this over for a day or so and I am uncomfortable with the whole concept. Sure, at face value it's a wonderful idea. But this whole death hoax and Michael Jackson Fan group thing is so toxic that I'm afraid anything with his name attached to it looks "cultish" or like wacky fan driven.

I am also mildly instinctively offended at the notion that members here aren't already doing their part to be the man in the mirror and make that change... not because they have to answer to someone or to get recognition and pats on the back for it publicly on the board, or to seek approval from TS or to appease Michael, but because it's the right thing to do and the right way to live, and frankly, we all got shook up out of the Matrix and got our eyes opened recently.

Again, wonderful idea. But I have reservations that this won't blow up in someone's face. This death hoax community is turbulent, you know what I mean? Do we really have to "prove" that we are walking the walk to the internet community? I am not at all suggesting that anyone should wear this hat that doesn't fit into it. Just throwing out some honest thoughts.

You shouldn't be offended. It wouldn't be easy to know who is doing what for the world, as it's not like everyone puts up a notice every time they do a good deed! I am 100% certain that most everybody here has done good deeds and taken steps to "make that change". However, TS said in the redirect the other day that it's time for the Army of L.O.V.E to take action as a whole- pull off a team effort, via the Web, that will try to get the attention of as many people as possible to pay attention.

I like this idea.  I see the case for the MJ domain name, but I think the Michael one has a nice ring to it.  I think this is a great way to do something collectively, bring recognition to the cause, help charities, and honor Michael all at the same time.  I also like the idea of an independent escrow company.  That way everyone is protected.
