I'm super excited about our new partnership with @freshnlean and the @heallosangelesfdn. Not only are they helping us bring much needed food to underserved communities but they are made with organic ingredients, plated with nutrition in mind and delivered fresh. I can't wait to show you all the great things we can bring to LA when we work together. This is only the beginning for us and we are here to help our communities grow and thrive. We are very excited to be working with an organization that shares our passion to better the Los Angeles area and will be developing new ideas on how to better serve our communities. ✌
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.
