Because the business was doing well, Michael found a calling to give back to the community. He co-founded Metrofly, a non-profit organization that hosted fundraising events for charity. Then, with the intention of also making a difference through his created the music and film multimedia project, X: The Human Condition with his music group, X: THC.

The multimedia project has received rave reviews globally, from Europe, Australia, Africa and Asia to North & South America. To date, the majority of all proceeds have been donated to charity.
