The second big charities he supports is 'The World Villages for Children' which has more of an interesting back story, After a adventure in the Philippines, Russell saw the dire straights of kids on the streets with nothing and tried to help while there. But this was limited.
However the strange thing was 6 months later he got a letter from a Nun, Sister Michaela asking for his help to help kids escape a life of poverty and help get new schools built.
She didn't know he had been to the Philippines it was just a random letter but because he had seen things first hand and a Interactive CD-Rom version of his famous book 'Music Business Bastards (How to do well in the music Business with out getting ripped of) had just done well he gave all the proceeds to World Villages for Children to help get some schools built and has supported the charity ever since. This year being the 20th anniversary of doing so. There is a limited to what he can do and despite the rumours he is far from rich and asks that you look into the charities below.
