The city of Los Angeles has only raised about $17,000 in donations to cover the costs spent for the Michael Jackson Memorial. It is not because Michael’s fans are cheap, in fact it is because too many fans are logging onto the donation website, which in turn has caused the site to crash.

Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa said, “The city’s Information Technology Agency could not handle the high volume of traffic or adequately respond to receive contributions for several hours Tuesday afternoon … for at least 12 consecutive hours Tuesday evening … and periodically throughout Wednesday morning.”

The Mayor is urging fans to keep trying to log onto the site and make a donation. If you are interested in making a donation, please use the link below.

Now that the memorial service for Michael Jackson has just finished, Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa is asking fans to contribute to offset the $4 million it will cost the city to cover the city’s costs associated with the funeral and memorial.

The Mayor’s office has created the following site for those who are interested in making a donation.

There are many Angelinos who do not agree that the city should be covering the costs and are asking the Jackson family to pay the costs the city has incurred. As of now, there is no word from the family if they will be paying for all or part of the costs.
