Michael Jackson

The King of Pop. The Gloved One. Michael Jackson.

His physical form may have departed this world in 2009, but he remains one of the most influential musicians on earth, and his 1982 album “Thriller” remains the best-selling album of all time, selling 29 million copies in the U.S. alone.

While some philanthropists make one or two large mega-donations, Jackson preferred to make smaller contributions to multiple charities, so many in fact that Guinness World Records recognized him for supporting more charities than any other entertainer. His donations included $600,000 to the United Negro College Fund, $100,000 to the Children’s Defense Fund, $500,000 to Elizabeth Taylor’s AIDS Foundation, and over 35 others, for an estimated total of over $300 million given to charity all together.
