The Charity Work of Open Society Foundation of founded by George Soros

George Soros is one of the greatest philanthropists in the world. Soros has supported many organizations and individuals in the world who fight for accountable governments, freedom of expression, transparency and those supporting justice and equality. He focuses mainly on groups and people who have been discriminated for who they are. He has supported groups such as LGBTI people, sex workers, and drug users. George Soros established the Open Society Foundations.

Soros who survived the Nazi occupation of 1944 to 1945, says in an open society foundation that his family escapes the murder by forging identity papers concealing their background. By doing so, they escaped their fate and ended helping other people. It is in this spirit that Soros has become charitable. His charity work began in South Africa during the apartheid in 1979. He gave scholarships to black South African and in the 1980s, he provided photocopiers to an eastern communist bloc that promoted the open exchange of ideas. He created the central university to foster critical thinking after the fall of Berlin Wall. He supported cultural exchange amongst Eastern Europe and west and funded Soviet society. Soros expanded his charitable works into the United States, Asia, and Africa after the end of the cold war.

Soros worked as a night club waiter and railway porter in London and used his wages to pay for his fee. He relocated to the United States and joined the world of finance and investments. He made his fortune in this world and 1970 he launched his hedge fund known as Soros Fund management and ended up being one of the most successful investors in the United States.

The billionaire George Soros has built a kingdom that donates throughout Europe and duplicates political machine powered by not for profit making organizations that have had a significant influence on American politics. According to the Washington Times, Soros donated more than $33 million to support established groups that were the grassroots of Ferguson movement. His financial contribution has turned the one day protest into a 24 hour a day national protest. Soros believes that people should participate in government. Soros who is the founder and director of open society foundation noted that one way of making the society more accountable is helping groups combine research and policy with community organizing.

The Open Society has been making donations to groups since it was founded in the early 1990s. Though the groups in the protests have received donations from Soros, they were not directed to protest at the request of Open Society. The protest at Ferguson and Cleveland were spontaneous, and the organization does not have the ability to dictate what others say. The circumstances have gained people’s attention, and the social justice groups involved have seen that such incidents represent a lack of democratic participation and accountability.

Why Chris Burch Knows More Than Just Fashion

Chris Burch, the founder of Tory Burch and other retail brands is now regarded as the owner of the finest resort in the world. Burch decided to build a five-star resort on a remote Indonesian Island after taking a peek at a beach hostel that was less than desirable. This five-star resort is now deemed as the finest resort in the world, putting Burch on the map yet again for a wise investment. As an entrepreneur, Burch is always seeking another opportunity where he can best get a return on his investment.

Burch didn’t take the leap alone, but joined hands with a well-known hotelier, James McBride for the transaction. The island of Sumba is where the resort is located, purchased by Burch and McBride in 2012. The hostel they purchased rang in at a price tag of $30 million dollars for renovations and the property. The two men re-opened it as a five-star resort, under the name of Nihiwatu in 2015. It didn’t take long for the resort to get the vote as the “best in the world”, getting that vote in 2016 by the Travel+Leisure Magazine. Check bloomberg.com for additional reading.

Burch sees his investment as a way to preserve something, leaving it better than he found it. He talked about the natural beauty of the location, and how it is easy to jump in and create something more because of how beautiful it truly is there.
