“Ultimately, I believe that our lives and purpose should be about preserving what is good in this world – striving for peace and compassion – and doing this through music and an undying commitment to love. You have to show your personality, your character, and most of all your truth. You have to express the hopes of your soul, and that’s what my music is about. It’s simply about what it means to be human… I of course want to be remembered as a talented artist, but most of all, I want to be remembered as a human being who did his part to make this world a better place.”  Mario Frangoulis

Throughout his career, Mario has supported numerous charities and philanthropic initiatives he has been unwavering in his life-long commitment to humanitarian causes, especially those that pertain to the protection of children.

The list of charities and philanthropic initiatives he has supported over the years is long, and include the Jose Carreras Leukemia Foundation, Give US Your Poor, The Jericho Project, the Dalai Lama Center for Peace, Prince Charles of England’s Charities, UNESCO, British Red Cross and many more.

Horatio Alger Association

Horatio Alger Association has been funding need-based college scholarships to support deserving young people to overcome their adversity and pursue their dreams through higher education.

The Horatio Alger Scholarship Programs specifically assist high school students who have faced and overcome great obstacles in their young lives.

While many programs are directed primarily to recognizing academic achievement or leadership potential, the Horatio Alger Association seeks students who have exhibited determination, integrity, and perseverance in overcoming adversity, as well as critical financial need.


World Centers of Compassion for Children International

WCCCI envisions a new paradigm within global cultures and governments that embrace, nurture, and empower children with a compassionate world view. WCCCI is designed as a comprehensive and systematic approach to support the future of world peace and the rights of the child, which are inexorably linked.

To achieve this, “Three Pillars of Action” are essential to the approach:

•  Centers of Compassion
•  Peace Education
•  Adoption of the Universal Declaration of Rights for Children.

Every day, almost 16,000 children die from hunger-related causes - one child every five seconds.
