The Early Years:

In 1969, Michael Jackson and the Jackson 5 perform at a benefit concert for their home county, Indiana's mayor, Richard G. Hatcher.

On Christmas Day, 1972, in Los Angeles, California, the 14 year old singer and the Jackson 5, dressed as Santas, make their appearance at a foundation, to visit and offer presents - on behalf of their record company, Motown - to 700 underprivileged children.
In an article, titled "The Jackson 5 Really Changed!", the writer points out that "The first time the J-5 did a benefit at a children's hospital, Michael came home and cried all night at the memory of all those sick children lying in beds, some not even able to move their hands to clap. That is when he became actively involved in communicating with these kids. He corresponds with youngsters his own age in hospital all over the country. These are not letters dictated to a secretary by a superstar, but letters written in Michael's own hand during breaks in recording or rehearsing or even in school."
During that season, the Jackson 5 perform Christmas songs during a benefit concert at the "Foundation for the Junior Blind" for 1000 visually impaired children, 400 of which attending the benefit party. On his thoughts about the event, Michael Jackson declares: "You know, really, this is what Christmas is all about - giving."
