After reading this story this morning on TMZ about Lisa Marie Presley's (LMP) visit to Forest Lawn, and LMP's MySpace message, I got an idea about her request to shower MJ's grave with his Happy Flower... the sunflower. (EDIT: See bottom of this thread for another flower campaign for June 25th). (Thank you from a IACOP canook for the info-- sorry for the delay in posting).
Please view Forest Lawn's rules about artificial (plastic, silk, etc) flowers. In short, they aren't allowed. (EDIT: I have since heard that the artificial flowers for Michael have been allowed, since they gifts left are later taken to Michael's family-- so it sounds like you can send them).
Since it may be more costly for fans in countries outside the US to send the actual sunflower, I am going to talk to the fans at MJFSC who deliver cards, letters and flowers to MJ's grave every month to see if there's something we can arrange for those outside the US -- and maybe they can purchase the sunflowers for you. I'll keep you posted.
I'll also look into some florists in the area who you might be able to purchase a flower from directly and have delivered. Perhaps a deal can be made with one or two florists who can host international sales. Keep you posted on that as well.
Wouldn't it be wonderful if millions of sunflowers arrived?
In the meantime, if you want to send them directly to Forest Lawn, here is the address:
The Holy Terrace At Forest Lawn
1712 South Glendale Avenue
Glendale Calif, 91205
If you want to send them through MJFSC, here is the address:
PO Box 575
Atwood, CA 92811-0575
Notice address change.
Here is a past-thread of some of the other videos from MJFSC's monthly visits to MJ's grave at FL.
Here's a video from one of our Opus friends in Russia, Ekaterina Kofman, who recently visited Forest Lawn. What a beautiful video.
EDIT: Another group is gathering donations for One Rose for Michael. Latest count is 985 roses have been paid for ($3 each). These will be delivered to Michael's grave at Forest Lawn on June 25th. Visit their Facebook pages: Main Page Topic page
