Philanthropic Works

The Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts has a number of renovations and additions in the works, thanks to an amazing fundraising campaign. The Center decided that based on the success of reaching their initial goal of $125 million so easily, they would increase their target by another $50 million. This increase would cover the additional costs added to their original plan that has undergone a number of changes since the fundraiser started in 2013. The targeted completion date for the expansion is in late 2018.

Donations have come in from many corporations and individuals who are dedicated to the arts community. One of the larger donations was from the Dick and Betsy DeVos Family Foundation. This charitable organization is run by married couple Dick and Betsy DeVos. Dick DeVos has been involved in philanthropic causes for many years. A Michigan-born entrepreneur and businessman, DeVos has a fortune of just over $5 billion and is considered one of the wealthiest people in the United States. Politically active, DeVos has fought for the Right to Work cause as well as a new law that would enable children to use school vouchers in Michigan.

DeVos’ philanthropy includes donating to organizations who support free-market ideals and are looking for methods to prevent and control pollution. The Dick and Betsy DeVos Foundation was established in 1990 and has been actively involved in a number of projects around Michigan. They provide scholarships to local students and began the first-ever aviation training charter school. The charity is also heavily involved in arts programs both in Michigan and around the country. This love of the arts was the reason for their substantial donation to the Kennedy Center fundraiser.

Activism, Human Rights

In college, Halvorssen warmed up for his life’s work by organizing boycots against investments in South Africa when apartheid was still part of that country’s constitution.

However, before he graduated, he worked on the case of a political prisoner a lot closer to him, his own father.

Despite his wealth and highly placed job in the government, Halvorssen’s father made enemies when he exposed corrupt government officials taking money from drug lords, and wound up tortured in prison.

According to an article in The Weekly Standard, Halvorssen didn’t realize it until he read his father’s obituary, but his father worked actively for human rights causes in Latin America, for the rights of Miskito Indians in Nicaragua and documenting violations committed by Marxist guerillas.

In college he edited a conservative paper, running such articles as one on White Women Against Racism excluding a black woman from their meetings.

After graduating from college, Halvorssen co-founded the Foundation for Individual Rights in Education. For years it worked against the political correctness limited freedom of speech on American college campuses.

However, in 2004 his family once again had a close encounter with the government of Venezuela, by then headed by President Hugo Chavez.

According to this article from Huffington Post, Halvorssen’s mother, a descendant of both the South American freedom fighter Simon Bolivar and Venezuela’s first president, went to an anti-Chavez rally she expected would be peaceful. They were asking former President Jimmy Carter not to certify Chavez’s election. Over a hundred Chavez supporters attacked, firing into the rally. Halvorssen’s mother survived her gunshot wound, but still suffers chronic pain from it. (And Jimmy Carter did certify the election.)

Thor Halvorssen decided he’d rather defend the Venezuelan reporters risking their lives than student cartoonists attacked by the P.C. police, and founded HRF.

Hugo Chavez is dead, but his government survives. The current president, Maduro, still holds Halvorssen’s cousin, Leopoldo Lopez, prisoner. Both Bill Clinton and Amnesty International (after heavy pressure from Halvorssen’s family) support his release.

Some people on the left view Halvorssen as a right winger because he attacks left wing dictatorships such as Venezuela, North Korea and Cuba. However, he also attacks dictatorships of the right. Not long ago, he surprised Fox News by saying he could vote for Bernie Sanders for president, but not Hillary Clinton, because she supports dictatorships, but Sanders doesn’t.

Venezuela

If it weren’t for the long, winding lines of people waiting for hours to get into the sparsely stocked government supermarkets, one might think the South American country of Venezuela had become a ghost town.
The country is running on an empty tank, and according to Adrian Jose Velasquez Figueroa it’s just a matter of time until the government hits bottom. Plunging oil prices have ruined the country’s economy, especially since Venezuela happens to be one of the world’s largest exporters of oil.

Because of Venezuela’s runaway inflation, few can afford going to McDonald’s, for example Veleasquez Figueroa added. According to striking photos shown at WashingtonPost.com, the fast food industry has taken a big hit, with empty seats and tables on a Sunday afternoon. The high prices of McDonald’s burgers and fries are keeping families far away.

The Bolivarian National Guard, complete with riot shields and truncheons, stand by to police the snaking lines outside the supermarkets as weary and hungry Venezuelan citizens wait for their turn to get inside. Store shelves are sparse, however, unless one wants to stock up on vinegar. That staple is plentiful, or one of the few items the country has available.

Soros Hedge Fund and other investors borrowed lots of money which they used on betting. George Soros predicted that the British Pound was to lose versus other currencies. The British Pound would lose its worth, and no amount of interest or buying of the pound would reverse it value.

The prophecy came to pass as Britain removed from ERM and its currency lost value on http://www.georgesoros.com/philanthropy/. On Wednesday 16th September 1992, at 7:30 Pm, Lamont made an announcement about Britain floating its’ pound and exiting the ERM. This was the long awaited news to confirm the prophecy made by Soros. This day of Wednesday is commonly referred to as the ‘Black Wednesday.’

To George Soros, this was an “Awesome Wednesday.” The British currency loses 25% to the Dollar and 15% to the Deutschmark once it floated. After, the worth of the fund increased immediately. It rose from $15 billion to $19 billion and after several months, its value was estimated to be $22 billion. And according to George Soros, that’s how one becomes a billionaire.

Later in 1956, he moved to the United States where he held several senior positions in various companies. Soros is affiliated to the F.M. Mayer from 1956 to 1959, Wertheim &Co. 1959 to 1963 and Arnhold & S.Bleichroeder 1963 to 1973.

Apart from being an economist, George Soros is also a writer who has written several essays and books; he’s known for his philanthropic work throughout the world and is a human rights activist. In 1973, George Soros decided to venture into his own business and founded the Hedge Fund Company. He managed the firm, and it later became one of the most respected and known Quantum Fund. The Fund has had huge returns and in some years posting more than 100% profit.

For his philanthropic work, George Soros introduced Open Society Foundations in the year 1979. According to him, the free societies were founded on the fact that the world is imperfect, and it can be improved. He gave scholarships to black African students from South Africa to pursue their education abroad. The open societies Foundations is spread to more than 100 countries in the world.

George Soros, having had a troubled childhood, has dedicated his life and success to helping others who are less privileged, especially into getting a better education. He braces the controversial issues, and his philanthropic ventures have been the subject of external attacks. Just the other day, an activist hilariously failed to infiltrate the OSF after exposing his intentions over undisconnected call.
