Prince was well known as a singer, song writer, producer, and even actor, but did you know he was also a huge philanthropist? Throughout his life, Prince collaborated with a number of charities and organizations including Green for All, which creates green jobs in disadvantaged communities, and #YesWeCode, an organization that educates urban youth about technology. He also raised awareness for Black Lives Matter and was always using his influence to help others.
“His cause is humanity…. He cares a lot about people. Nobody went to a Prince concert and said, ‘I don’t belong here. I’m not black. I’m not white. I’m not cool. I’m not straight. I’m not whatever.’ His cause was empowering and uplifting people. That didn’t stop when he walked off the stage or out of the studio. It was a current of genius trying to move the human heart.”
