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.
