George Soros: A Real Philanthropist

Recently, George Soros earned a lot of attention for donating the most money to a single foundation by a private donor. George Soros is one of the most successful hedge fund managers alive today, earning billions of dollars throughout his career. His monetary generosity came in the form of $18 billion over the course of several years.

His chosen foundation, the Open Society Foundations, is the second-largest charitable foundation in the country. Over the years, Soros’s grown more philanthropic, wanting to help more as he gets older. He started donated large amounts of money a few years ago, and he just continued to donate.

The reason behind his tremendous donations is simple: he genuinely likes helping people. He’s not the kind of guy that donates millions as a tax dodge. His organization, Open Society, fights for democracy and human rights in over 120 nations. Recently, their focus has been on the United States.

After the 2016 election, the number of “hate incidents” rose exponentially. Arguably, the United States is going through one of its toughest times in recent decades. Open Society is all over the board, trying to help as many organizations and movements as possible. Their reach even protects art and culture.

The NY Times recently talked about George Soros’s political affiliations. Of course, he sides with Democrats and Hillary Clinton. That’s made him a target for anyone opposing the liberal agenda. He’s been called a number of horrible things, none as bad as the “movements” these hate groups accuse him of supporting.

He’s been labeled as everything from simply stupid to a traitor. Despite all the hate, many of the left consider him to be a shining light in these dark times. As long as there are shadows in America’s corners, there will be people speaking negatively about George Soros. As times get rougher, the accusations get worse. He’s been hated by many for decades, but things got serious after Trump’s victory. Conservatives went crazy and accuse Soros of anything that comes to mind. He’s supposedly helping both sides of social and racial movements just for fun.

One source claims that he’s responsible for the sexual assault accusations against Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore. He’s apparently even responsible for Donald Trump firing some of his own people. None of these claims make any sense.

 

Eric Pulier: A Career Based on Philanthropy

Anyone that is looking for the most successful and valuable person in the world should not look for his net worth or the amount of money in his account. Often times, the most effective person is not the richest person. It is the person who has done a lot for his community and people throughout the world. One thing he has done was come up with tons of inventions so that people can benefit from them. One of the best things he has done was not limit himself to just one solution that is general. He has created many different solutions that different groups of people could enjoy.

 

One solution he has created is Starbright World. This is a social network that is created for children with chronic illness to meet with one another and share their experiences with one another. One thing about chronic illness is that children are not going to find a lot of sympathy, especially from their peers. Instead of extra care, chronically ill children are often avoided like the plague. In some cases, they are even ridiculed because of their illness. This often leaves children with illness to have nowhere to turn. Fortunately, Starbright World allows people to know that they don’t have to be alone and isolated.

 

Eric Pulier has also held plenty of other jobs including working for the government. He has also developed a lot of software for the internet. When one looks at all of the work that Eric has done, they will see that he has a lot of care for the community and is willing to do everything he can to make sure that different people get the help they need to get their lives on track. He may not be the richest person in the world, but he has definitely made a lot of changes in people lives.
