Prince Jackson's charitable acts
Michael Jackson's son, Prince Jackson is keeping his late father proud as he puts forward donations in the efforts to aid those vulnerable during the global pandemic.
The 23 year old said in a recent interview that he feels his father would be proud of his charitable acts. Prince has started the charity Heal Los Angeles, which works alongside a meal delivery service, Fresh 'N' Lean, which helps hand out meals to those that are vulnerable during this challenging time.
Prince said of his charity, "I would like to think that he would be very proud because I think this was one of his main goals, was not only to spread his message of positivity and happiness but to see it enacted in his kids."
He continued, "As a father, I think that's what you want to do when you raise kids. You're preparing them for the world and the type of person they're going to be."
He then went on to mention the way his father parented saying, "I'm very grateful that I have this feeling that it's this collaborative ecosystem — we all need to help each other — and that came from the way that he raised us."
"I was very fortunate to have him as a father," he added. "I had a lot of unique experiences growing up, and what I'm trying to do with my platform and the non-profit or the charity organization is to share those experiences."
The charity's main goal is to help those at risk for socioeconomic strife during quarantine as the world navigates through COVID-19.
It has been just over a decade since Michael Jackson passed away, leaving behind his three children Paris, Prince, and Bigi.
A source close to the children has said that despite it being hard in the beginning, they are "in a good place" 10 years later.
