Default George Michael-Project Angel Food

One windy fall afternoon a brown envelope was found at the doorstep of Project Angel Food's Sunset Boulevard office.
The envelope had a handwritten note from George Michael thanking Project Angel Food: "Just keep doing what you are doing Love, George.” Inside the envelope was a check $25,000 to show his love and gratitude. "It was enough to buy food, to make payroll and a lot more," said John Gile, former CEO.

That began a long relationship between Project Angel Food and George, and contributions came in every year since then.

He also donated his Mercedes-Benz which was auctioned in a special event. And, George volunteered in the kitchen and delivered meals as part of his community service time in 1998.
....
Project Angel Food will have a special ceremony on George Michael's birthday on June 25, 2017.

George gave so much when was alive to so many charities so why are so many now trying to cash in on his kindness/memory now he has died. Sorry to be cynical but it makes me feel sad. I know I'm probably the only one who thinks this but I'm just being honest. George when he needed help he had to dig deep and pay for everything and nobody gave him anything out of pure kindness - he had to even had to kind of fund his relationships - so many people on the take.

Default George to be honored at the Angel Awards

On August 19th, George will be awarded the Elizabeth Taylor Lifetime Achievement Award.
There will also be a special musical tribute by Adam Lambert.
Kenny Goss is chairing the event.

Project Angel Food was one of George's favorite charities. He even helped out in the soup kitchen.
I can not think of anyone more deserving of this award than George.

Adam Lambert to honour George Michael at charity show
Queen frontman Adam Lambert will pay tribute to George Michael at Project Angel Food’s 27th annual Angel Awards in Los Angeles next month (19Aug17).

The singer will perform a selection of the late pop star's hits at the event, where Michael will be named the recipient of the Elizabeth Taylor Humanitarian Award for his support of the charity organisation, which provides free meals to the sick.
Michael quietly donated £19,400 to Project Angel Food annually from 1993 until his death on Christmas Day (25Dec16).
Ironically, the late Wham! singer was among the stars who joined the members of Queen at the Freddie Mercury Tribute Concert in 1992.
