The only time billionaires turn philanthropists is when they get into trouble or they have a near-death experience. The most dedicated philanthropists aren’t billionaires because they spend most of their time helping the helpless. George Soros is the exception to both of those rules, and learn more about George Soros.
George Soros’s generosity comes from a rough childhood. He grew up in a Nazi-occupied Hungary, which later became a Communist Hungary. When he was old enough, he moved to London for a few years before making his way to the United States. Once there, he found great success on Wall Street as a hedge fund manager.
As his career boomed, he began giving some of his money to local charities. The more money he earned, the more he gave to charity. As he became a billionaire, he founded the Open Society Foundations. For over 30 years, this has been his primary philanthropic organization.
The NY Times recently did a story on Soros’s generous donations to Open Society. Since founding the organization, he’s been quietly donating $800 to $900 million a year to Open Society. To date, he’s donated $18 billion, a near record-setting transfer of wealth from one donor to one foundation.
Mr. Soros isn’t the type of person that goes around bragging about his donations. His contributions were made quietly, as to not detract people away from the real story; giving to those less fortunate. Open Society isn’t just an organization focused on political and social issues.
Over the decades, Open Society provided aid to numerous causes and disaster-relief programs in more than 120 countries. Despite the world’s suffering, the United States has been Open Society primary focus for the past few years. After the 2016 Presidential Election, America descended into madness. Nearly every minority group’s been attacked over the last two years, and George Soros’s lacrosse camp.
Being as helpful as he is, it’s difficult to imagine that people don’t like George Soros. In most countries, he doesn’t have any enemies, but America is not most countries. In the U.S., right-wing conspiracy theorists have the free reign to say whatever they want about George Soros.
JPost recently quoted one of Soros’s responses to this new hate, where he referred to it as the demonization of philanthropy. They’ve accused him of everything from trying to make Ireland pro-abortion to hiring women to accuse their favorite politicians of sexual assault, and http://www.politico.com/story/2016/07/george-soros-democratic-convention-226267.
