Nearly 90 years ago, one of the greatest men to ever live was born. George Soros was born and raised in Hungary 87 years ago. Unfortunately, his family was Jewish and living in Nazi-occupied Hungary. Things didn’t get better after the war and Hungary became a Communist nation.
When he was old enough, Soros moved to London before moving to the United States. Once in the U.S., he began working on Wall Street. It wasn’t after that he found success as a hedge fund manager. Now, George Soros is a billionaire hedge fund manager and an avid philanthropist.
For more than 30 years, Soros has been involved in philanthropy. It started when he first found success on Wall Street and began donating to charity. Eventually, he founded his own organization, Open Society. Over the years, he’s donated billions to the foundation. According to the NY Times, he’s donated a total of $18 billion to the foundation.
Obviously, he didn’t donate billions of dollars at a time, but close to it. He’s been donating $800 million or more every year since founding Open Society. This has made his foundation one of the largest charitable organizations in the world.
The primary goal of Open Society is to promote democracy and human rights. In reality, they’ll help anyone with an issue they deem worthy of their time. There’s too much suffering for them to ignore just because it’s not part of their original mission. That’s the way Soros wanted it.
Most of their current efforts are focused on the United States. For the few years, America’s been facing some tough times. Once Donald Trump was elected, things got worse very quickly. Open Society is doing everything it can to protect minority groups and bring an end to the hate and violence that’s running rampant in the streets, and learn more about George Soros.
The more Soros tries to do, the more the opposition tries to stop him. JPost recently explored this demonization of philanthropy. Everything George Soros has done for the good of humanity has been made to look like an attack on America.
Right-wing conspiracy theorists accuse Soros of everything from supporting both sides of racial issues to hiring women to accuse Republican Senate candidates of sexual assault. His support of the NFL protests and the Women’s March has even been made to look like terrorist support, and https://www.nytimes.com/topic/person/george-soros.
