Jackson brothers meet Japanese tsunami victims

Michael Jackson's brothers have visited an orphanage in Tokyo to raise the spirits of children orphaned by the earthquake and tsunami in Japan earlier this year (11).

The Thriller hitmaker's relatives are in the country ahead of two tribute shows in honor of the late King of Pop next week (begs12Dec11).


The concerts will benefit victims of the March (11) double disaster, and Jackie Jackson and his siblings met with young survivors of the tragedies.


In a post on his Twitter.com page on Saturday (10Dec11), he writes, "My brothers and I made rice cakes with the children of the Akabane orphanage, in Tokyo. Many of these children lost their parents in the recent tsunami."
