When you have seen the things I’ve seen and traveled all over the world, you would not be honest to yourself and the world to be that way [self absorbed/hard hearted]. I just couldn’t see myself not being touched by the things I have seen, like that village in China, and the things I have seen in Africa and Russia and Germany and Israel. I remember this newborn baby fighting to live, newborn with all the things in the nose, in a hospital in Israel. How could your heart not go out to something like that? I said to everybody, the kids, everybody, “Come here kids. You have to see this,” because I think they understand the sensitivity of how children are important, helping others, reaching out to the world, to the underprivileged. Being materialistic and showing this sense of me-ism all the time is something I deplore. - Michael Jackson

Victory Tour Press Conference, 1984

"I know I can’t heal the world. But I can help." 

Michael Jackson first said these words when he was a child, ladies and gentleman. I’ve heard this many times before but it still continues to astound me. 

In the early 1980s, I sent him a letter telling him about a black family whose property I had listed for sale right near the Coliseum. The 87-year-old father, who had severe heart disease, had three younger children ranging in age from 16 to 19, still struggling to get through their…

President Iliescu of Romania inaugurates a playground for 500 orphans
which Michael has financed. Michael also discusses his Heal The World Foundation.

In 1992, my Dad, John Croasdale, received a phone call from a man who wanted Playdale to build a playground for a big orphanage in Bucharest, Romania, for 500 children. That was the furthest Playdale had ever been to build a playground, the man did not say who wanted the playground to be built, so the designers and installers got to work, they built the playground in the factories and sent it in a massive lorry to Romania, six people went along too, when they arrived in Bucharest, they discovered that Michael Jackson was the mystery client, and he wanted the playground for his ‘Heal the World’ foundation. When Michael opened the playground, my mum managed to take a photo of him, sticking his thumbs up at her and the other people to say thank you.
