 GLOBAL EFFORTS OF 'HEAL THE WORLD' FOUNDATION
 TO BE HIGHLIGHTED DURING HBO OCT. 10 MICHAEL JACKSON CONCERT
 LOS ANGELES, Oct. 8 /PRNewswire/ -- The initial global efforts of the Heal The World Foundation, founded by superstar Michael Jackson earlier this year to raise awareness of issues related to children throughout the world, will be highlighted in a specifically prepared three-minute film introducing Jackson's new charity, Heal The World, to be aired immediately prior to HBO's exclusive concert telecast on Saturday, Oct. 10, at 8 p.m. EDT. In addition, an "800" number is being made available leading into and following the broadcast, for those who would like to support Heal The World's missions, with all proceeds going directly to the non-profit Heal The World Foundation. Donations can be pledged directly to the Foundation by calling 800-458-4400. A limited edition "Michael Jackson Heal The World -- Bucharest 1992" T-shirt will be given free for any donation over $30.00.
 The Heal The World Foundation has announced three goals: to establish a World Children's Congress to bring young people between the ages of 8-16 together from around the world to discuss issues of concern to them, including health care, the environment, hunger, and child abuse, and present action recommendations to the foundation's board of directors; to establish an annual international prize honoring outstanding grass-roots efforts in improving the conditions related directly to children; and to identify special projects already underway around the globe and implement new funding sources to deliver additional efforts and services. Funds will be distributed for projects undertaken by Heal The World in conjunction with charitable organizations located around the world which are committed to improving situations affecting children.
 The Heal The World Foundation received its initial seed money from Jackson. To date, the organization has constructed a playground for orphans in Bucharest and is currently funding the work of a team of doctors from the United States treating children in Romania in critical need of medical attention.
 The purpose of The Heal The World Foundation is to improve conditions in the world, focusing on problems which affect or are of special concern to children.
