‘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.

They have started their own charities in memory of Jackson, the humanitarian.
