September 30, 1992
President Iliescu of Romania inaugurates a playground for 500 orphans
which Michael has financed. Michael also discusses his Heal The World Foundation.
In 1992, my Dad, John Croasdale, received a phone call from a man who wanted Playdale to build a playground for a big orphanage in Bucharest, Romania, for 500 children. That was the furthest Playdale had ever been to build a playground, the man did not say who wanted the playground to be built, so the designers and installers got to work, they built the playground in the factories and sent it in a massive lorry to Romania, six people went along too, when they arrived in Bucharest, they discovered that Michael Jackson was the mystery client, and he wanted the playground for his ‘Heal the World’ foundation. When Michael opened the playground, my mum managed to take a photo of him, sticking his thumbs up at her and the other people to say thank you.
The man died with a broken heart and people wonder why I have such a hatred for humanity.
