Michael Jackson’s eldest son Prince took a group of children from struggling families on a Christmas shopping spree.
According to the reports, Prince, who goes by the full name of Michael Joseph Jackson Jr., partnered up with the LA Police Baseball Foundation and his Heal LA Foundation in order to allow 25 underprivileged children from 9 families to get whatever they wanted for Christmas.
The 23-year-old philanthropist took the group on a shopping spree at the Mattel toy store in El Segundo, Los Angeles, whereas each of the kids was reportedly gifted $150 to spend on their favorite toys.
Once the bills hit the $150 threshold, Mattel also triggered a 50% discount rate, meaning that the kids were able to spend a total of $225.
Speaking of his grand gesture on Instagram, Prince wrote:
“Every year, since we were a student organization @heallosangelesfdn has put on a holiday event. We feel that it’s an opportunity to end a year on a positive note, to spend time with your loved ones and your family and to celebrate coming together and community.
“With this year being as hectic and chaotic as it was we felt that a holiday event was needed more than ever to share some love and joy with the youth of Los Angeles. Yesterday with the @lapd_baseball and @mattel we brought 25 kids from 9 families to go on a holiday shopping spree.
“Each kid had $120 budget plus a 50% discount from Mattel AND on top of that they got a FREE toy of their choosing and a goodie bag.”
The King of Pop’s eldest son has been volunteering through Heal LA Foundation since he was still an undergraduate student.
He was recently also spotted at an L.A. church where he maintained a low-key appearance as he was handing over Thanksgiving food provisions at the food drive.
