Every country has its problems. So countries have more problems than most, and others have few problems that are more severe. In most developed countries, there’s always at least one person of wealth fighting the good fight. In the U.S. that person is billionaire hedge fund manager George Soros.
George Soros was recently mentioned in an NY Times post for his multibillion-dollar donations to his Open Society Foundations. He didn’t donate billions of dollars in a single donation; he donated hundreds of millions of dollars over the last 30-plus years. His total donations added up to $18 billion.
There’s only one other philanthropic organization in the country that is above Open Society; the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. Mr. Soros’s generous contributions have only made headlines recently because Open Society usually keeps his donations a secret. Recent events have made stories like these necessary to inspire more people to give.
Open Society is a foundation that fights for anything they find a worthy cause. Their main objectives are promoting democracy and fighting for human rights. So far, they operate in more than 120 countries but have been working in the U.S. more than usual.
Over the past year, America’s seen a rise in hate crimes and just overall hatred incidents. Most accredit this rise in hatred to the 2016 presidential election and Donald Trump’s victory. Since then, nearly every civil and equal rights group has been under attack.
There’s no sign of the hatred slowing or calming down anytime soon.
That’s why it’s so important to Soros that his organization get involved. Open Society doesn’t just fight for human rights. They’ve also funded numerous other organizations that deal with health and treatment centers and art and culture preservation. Earlier this year, Mr. Soros donated $10 million to prevent police brutality.
According to JPost, his political affiliations earned him the attention of several right wing organizations. He’s been targeted and accused many times since coming out a Democratic supporter. The more he contributes to society, the worse the accusations become. He’s even been accused of undermining European governments’ control over their borders.
The most shocking accusation is that he’s been hiring women to falsely accuse Republican candidates of sexual assault. George Soros is an advocate for women’s rights and takes matters such as sexual assaults very seriously.
