7 ways in which Michael Jackson helped to heal the world

“Today, of all days, we focus on loving one another and giving. Let’s do that not just one day of the year, but for 365 days… Let’s love one another. Let’s forget hatred and turn to those that are suffering; not just today but every day. Join me in healing the world and making it a better place”, Jackson said many years ago. He kept his word and here is how he did it.

‘There are ways to get there’: continuing Michael Jackson’s humanitarian legacy

Michael Jackson is no stranger to the Guinness Book of World Records. He is listed as holding 30 world records. One of these records stands out from all others, as it has nothing to do with his music. It‘s his record for generosity. Jackson has supported more charities than any other entertainer in the music industry. One of his last wishes was to continue this support after his death. But the Estate that manages Jackson’s legacy cannot comply as long as Jackson’s finances are in limbo. His family and fans, however, know that time waits for no one. They have started their own charities in memory of Jackson, the humanitarian.

‘There are ways to get there’: het voortzetten van Michael Jacksons filantropie

Michael Jackson is geen vreemde voor het Guinness Book of World Records. Hij staat er in vermeld met 30 wereldrecords. Eén van deze records valt op, omdat deze niets te maken heeft met zijn muziek. Het is zijn record voor vrijgevigheid. Jackson heeft meer goede doelen ondersteund dan enig andere artiest in de muziekindustrie. Eén van zijn laatste wensen was om dit na zijn dood voort te zetten. Maar de Estate die zijn nalatenschap beheert, kan deze wens niet honoreren zolang Jacksons financiën onduidelijk zijn. Zijn familie en fans beseffen echter dat de tijd niet stil staat. Zij zijn met hun eigen goede doelen gestart ter nagedachtenis aan Jackson, de filantroop.
