“(Michael Jackson) was a bigger philanthropist than most people gave him credit for. ‘We Are the World’ marked what at that time was a high point in rich-world concern about poor people in the developing world. That sort of awareness helps to open the way not only for more effective foreign assistance but for other changes in policy, such as trade and migration, that can have a big impact on poor people’s lives.”- USA for Africa director Marcia Thomas and the Center for Global Development’s Nancy Birdsall.

Michael’s humanitarian legacy will never be forgotten. While he was touring Japan in 1987, he learned of the tragic story of Yoshiaki Ogiwara, a five-year-old boy who had been kidnapped and killed. Michael donated $20,000 to the boy’s family and dedicated his Japanese shows to his legacy. He then honored the boy on the single vinyl release of “Man in the Mirror” stating “May such a terrible thing never happen again. I will always love you. Michael Jackson.”
