Anybody that recalls the 40 years of music and dance brilliance of the remarkable "Michael Jackson" also can remember that Michael was also the greatest "Celebrity Humanitarian" in the history of the world. The Guiness Book of World Records remembers Michael Jackson as not only the "King of Pop" but also the "King of Charity".
The Millenium issue listed the music legend under Most Charities Supported By A Pop Star, with a staggering 39 international organizations including the Make-A-Wish Foundation and the American Cancer Society. Those are only the known ones however, as Michael Jackson was also prone to giving away impulsively and anonymously.
Jackson had been known to hand over the proceeds from concerts to local charities and hospitals as he did with the History tour in Bombay, or donate personal items for auction to organisations like UNESCO. Its been estimated he may have given up to $500 million to charity in his lifetime. That is a staggering "Half a Billion Dollars" which is more than the Top 100 Artists of All Time have given to charity combined!
In addition to his charity work, Michael Jackson, the King of Pop, had more Guiness World Records than any other artist, including Most Successful Concert Series and Biggest Selling Album for Thriller.
Women's World Peace Global Partnership co-founder, art director and director of marketing, Don Thornton is also marketing director and art director for the "Jackson Family Foundation". Michael Jackson's loving parents Katherine & Joseph Jackson formulated the "Jackson Family Foundation" in 2009 to not only "Preserve the "Legacy of Michael & the Jackson Family", but also to "Help Build Global Peace, Love & Unity".
