Though Charles [Faris] was an extremely busy man, one of his main passions was to help up and coming artists achieve their dreams. He started a well known organization called, "The Hollywood Hooligans and The Broadway Bratz", which consisted of many young celebrities that made music CDs, video's, and attended many red carpet concert events. He assisted them in all aspects of their musical career and was their mentor. A portion of the proceeds for all of these projects were donated to help many children's charities, especially for the sick.[6]
