Michael Jackson’s children Prince Michael and Paris Jackson made a rare joint public appearance in L.A. — and it was for a good cause!

“Extra” caught up with the siblings, who were both in costume, at the Heal L.A. and TLK Fusion Present the 2nd Annual Costume for a Cause at the Jackson family home in Encino, California.

Prince said the event was benefiting both his foundation Heal L.A. and his three cousins’ charity the Dee Dee Jackson Foundation, named for their mother, who was murdered in 1994.

Prince said of Heal L.A., “We focus on homelessness in L.A. as well as child abuse and child hunger.” He added, “The Dee Dee Foundation really works with kids who have lost a parent and had a traumatic experience like that to carry on their mom’s philanthropy work.”

He told “Extra” he is confident his passion for giving back came from his pop singer father. “It came from my dad — he really instilled in all of us that we need to help the community. You’re really nothing without the people that are around you so it’s really important to give back.”
