There is nothing that is more encouraging than seeing the wealthy people in the society take up causes that change the course of humanity for the better. Well, George Soros has been involved in Open Society Foundations for the past few decades and during this time; his influence has been felt in the US, Eastern Europe and even Africa and the rest of the third world. George had contributed more than $6 billion to different charities through the Soros Foundation. The latest from foundation indicates that he has given away $18 billion of his $25 billion estate to fund different charities. This is the true definition of a leader who wants to create a legacy in advocating for the rights of the less fortunate in the society.
Perhaps his love to help others was sparked by the events that marked his childhood. Soros grew up in Hungary during the Nazi occupation. He was forced to flee his own country because as a Jew, his life was in danger. When he got to England, he had to do menial jobs to earn a living and an education. George enrolled at the London School of Economics and was very successful. He has been managing hedge funds for the past six decades. When he made the Black Wednesday sale in England, he made a profit of a billion dollars in a day. He moved to the US soon after and had been operating from New York ever since then.
George started getting involved in philanthropy a long time ago. There was a time when he championed the rights of South African students who were being denied scholarship due to their skin color. In Europe, George Soros is a household name, because of his endless efforts to destroy the Marxist regime bring a free and just society to the marginalized region. He even has a University in his name in his home country of Hungary.
George has always followed the Democratic Party and their ideals. He has given a lot of money in support of their initiatives. For instance, he was one of the people that supported Senator Kerry to run against Bush in 2004. After Kerry lost, he disappeared from politics, only to reappear in 2007 during the Clinton/Obama campaign. Hillary did not receive the nomination, but George supported Obama fully. In 2016, he is said to have given more than $25 million towards Clinton’s campaign. He supports Clinton strongly because he strongly believes in her style of politics. He likes the way she champions the rights of the migrants and the LGBTQ community. and more information click here
Now that Clinton lost the race to the White House, Soros has had to use the open society foundations more in his bid to maintain some form of sanity in the American Society and beyond. He does not like the style of politics played by Trump, mostly because Trump preaches inequality. Soros hopes that through his contributions to the George Soros Foundation, he will manage to make the world a better place than the way he found it. and follow him Twitter.com
