Michael Jackson was a true humanitarian, an example to us all. He had devoted much time and money to a wide range of charities. He loved children and took time out from his busy schedule and secretly visted sick children. He had made special rooms at his home Neverland for sick and ill children to stay. One of the Guiness Book Of World Records he holds is for breaking the world record for the "Most Charities Supported by a Pop Star."
All in all, he had supported at least thirty-nine charity organizations either with monetary donations through sponsorships of their projects or by participating in their silent auctions. He devoted a great deal of time and money on a wide range of charities. Michael Jackson also helped set up Heal The World Foundation.
Michael wanted to leave the world a better place than how he found it.
