snipshot_6i15rartndc3.jpgWhile I can remember the King of Pop getting involved in charity work long before anyone else, it’s certainly been awhile since he’s made any moves in recent memory. According to the Deputy Director General of the Rwandan bureau of information,

Michael Jackson will be here in June 2007, he confirmed this. Michael Jackson is eager to know how many hospitals are in place in Rwanda and how he can help in improving people’s health here. He promised to do what he can afford to do. It could be in terms of equipment or any other assistance. We shall get to know much of that when he is here in June next year.”

As much as Michael (since I was kid, we’ve been on a first-name basis) is ridiculed here in the U.S., he’s still extremely popular overseas. I wonder though, if more children today would simply be frightened of the guy than enamored? Amazing how much he’s changed. Let’s hope his charity extends to more than just a visit…

    On the World Music Awards, it was said that he has contributed $350million to charity. That is a heck of a lot of money for anyone to give, even for him.
    I think he has done more than enough over the years.
