Michael Jackson's family is trying to release a new documentary about the late singer, and they want his fans to get in on the action.
The late singer's mother, Katherine, has penned a letter to his fans on fundanything.com requesting their financial support to help reach a $3.2 million goal to complete the nearly finished documentary Remembering Michael.
She described the film as a "tribute documentary film project that Michael's children Paris, Prince, Blanket and I have been working on for years," she wrote. "Our goal with this film is to share a positive, loving and respectful tribute to Michael, who spent his entire life sharing his gifts with the great hope of making the world a better place."

The mother of Michael Jackson's two eldest children reluctantly testified for the defense Wednesday that Jackson inappropriately used Propofol at least 12 years before his death – and was warned that he was playing with fire.
Debbie Rowe, called to the stand for lawyers defending concert promoter AEG against the Jackson family's wrongful death case, said Jackson used the potentially fatal anesthetic to help catch up on sleep in between show days when he brought his 1997 HIStory tour to Germany.
The two were married from 1996 to 1999.

Jackson family matriarch Katherine Jackson defended the good heart of her son Friday at the wrongful death lawsuit she and her family brought against the promoters of Michael Jackson's last and ill-fated world tour.
"The most difficult thing is to sit in this court and listen to all the bad things they're saying about my son. A lot of those things are just not the truth,” Jackson, 83, told the court before describing her family's meager start and early musical history.
"I know my son was a very good person," she said. "He loved everybody. He was in the Guinness Book of World Records for the entertainer who gave the most to charity."

Beckloff, who said his June 6-dated order is in response to "recent media reports concerning her welfare," had approved Paris's grandmother Katherine Jackson and cousin TJ Jackson as the child's co-guardians.

"Katherine, Debbie and TJ are going to meet on this soon to discuss and come up with a plan," a source close to the family tells PEOPLE.

Following an suicide attempt on Wednesday, Paris Jackson is now recovering, a family representative says.
"Paris is physically fine and getting appropriate medical attention," Sandra Ribera, attorney for Paris's legal co-guardian Katherine Jackson, says in a statement.
