A Go Fund Me Campaign That Will Benefit Stray Animals

Published Post author

Some New York City residents and other people who visit this great city have had the experience of finding a stray animal, taking it to a New York City shelter, and then being turned away. Even though the individuals who work at the shelters would like to help, they do not always have the space or funds that are available to take in all of the animals that are brought to their shelters. Fortunately, there are many goodhearted individuals out there who are trying to do something about this problem. They realize that this is an especially urgent problem since winter presents special challenges that need to be addressed. When animals are left on their own during the cold winter months and they have no place to go, they can freeze to death and have a difficult time taking care of themselves.

One individual who is trying to do something about this big problem is Ross Abelow. He is a well-known family attorney who works in New York City. He has decided to launch a campaign that will benefit animal shelters. In January 2016, he created a Go Fund Me campaign with the goal of raising $5,000. He is trying to get people all over the place on board with raising this money in order to benefit stray animals. Once the money has been raised, it will be given to New York shelters in order to address some of their biggest problems. The money will be used to help increase the amount of space that is available where animals can be sheltered. It will also be used to purchase food, medicine, blankets, and other items that will be used to take care of the animals.

Lots of people are familiar with Ross Abelow and the work he does. He maintains an active web presence and posts useful financial and legal information on his Facebook and Mashable pages. Fans, clients, friends, and other individuals can benefit from the information he posts. Ross Abelow also maintains a personal blog site where he addresses a variety of legal issues.

Since retiring he has dedicated himself to pursuing his passion in another important field: philanthropy. According to Inside Philanthropy one of the areas of philanthropy that DeVos has become a tireless champion of has been the movement for school choice through generous donations provided by his family foundation. 

The school choice movement has sought to give parents greater input in the quality and type of education that their children receive. The movement has ensured that parents are not limited by geography in regards to choosing the educational institution that can best serve their child’s needs. Dick DeVos has worked to support the school choice movement and education in general by providing financial support to institutions and individuals that support school choice. This has included financial support of the Education Freedom Fund. According to Wikipedia, DeVos was once a chair of the Education Freedom Fund. The fund gave scholarships to poor families in the state of Michigan that enabled them to attend the schools that best met their educational needs. 

The foundation has also supported organizations like the West Michigan Aviation Academy, the Potter’s House, the American Enterprise Institute and the Council for National Policy.

Raise the Volume- Raise the Awareness. Autism Rocks!

Published Post author

Autism Rocks is a charity organization started in 2014 by Sanjay Shah after the diagnosis of his youngest son with autism in 2011. He decided to combine his love of family and music to fix an all too common issue; too few people are truly aware and educated about this disorder. The foundation focuses on raising money for research and public awareness about the condition. The basic premise being to raise funds through the hosting of invitation-only concerts and using the proceeds of the shows to fund research by the team at The University of Cambridge. Shah makes very clear that the research he funds is not for the cure of autism, but rather for the understanding and prevention of the illness. The Autism Rocks Charity has hosted the likes of popular hip-hop artist Drake, legendary rapper Snoop Dogg, rock star Lenny Kravitz, pop star Prince, and even Michael Buble and many well-known DJs. Not only are the performances by invitation only, so are the tickets to be in the audience at the concerts. By doing it this way, Mr. Shah hopes to guarantee enough money to fund the program and research. He and his wife also contribute their own private funds to autism research as well.
Sanjay Shah is native of London, England and has long been involved in philanthropic work sponsoring children in Dubai for more than 10 years now. He attended King College in London, where he majored in biomedical science. He decided, however, that he did not want to practice medicine and went into accounting and banking instead. He worked with companies like Merrill Lynch and Morgan Stanley. After losing his job in the 2009 financial crisis and not seeing an abundance of job opportunities in his field at the beginning of what proved to be a deep recession, Shah created his own job, and Solo Capital was born.

Mr. Shah is the sole proprietor of Solo Capital Holdings and the founder and CEO of London-based Solo Capital Partners, specializing in propriety trading and professional sports investments. He is also the CEO of Solo Capital Markets, which according to Company Check UK is an investment consulting firm which also does derivatives, commodities, and foreign exchange. Due to his efforts in the banking and financial services industries, Sanjay Shah has become a very wealthy man. He decided to retire from Solo Capital in January of 2016 and focus all his philanthropic efforts on autism research through his charity, the Autism Rocks Trust. Currently, he lives in Dubai with his wife and family.

George Soros Is Funding Immigrant Voters Win PAC

Published Post author

 

An influx of immigration is taking place in the United States, but too many of these immigrants do not vote. Often times, the new immigrants are either not politically aware, or they simply don’t have enough of an interest in exercising their voting rights. However, this demographic of the population would very much tend to lean to the political left, if they show up at the polls. Currently, an effort is underway to get latinos to vote. The effort has certainly gained a lot of ground over the years, and it is expected to grow in the future. This movement has gained momentum, due to large donations from wealthy donors. George Soros, a european billionaire, is trying to get latinos to get out and vote. He donated large amounts of money to a political action organization, known as Immigrant Voters Win PAC. This political action organization has become so large, from all the donations, that it is considered a super PAC.

In some states, latino citizens constitute a larger portion of the population than in others. In these states, if the latino voters participate in politics, this could mean a significant change to the election. This likely could cause the democrats to end up winning these states. Furthermore, some of these states are the well known swing states. These swing states often have a major impact on the election. The candidates that win these states commonly end up winning the election. Immigrant Voters Win PAC has been concentrating it’s efforts on these states. Hopefully, the organization succeeds in bringing in the latino vote in these states.

Immigrant Voters Win PAC takes a unique approach to mobilize voters. Their approach has been quite partisan, favoring liberals. In doing this, they seek to inform latino voters about the anti-latino policies Trump is proposing. These ideas include the possible wall separating the United States from latin america. If he were to succeed in his goal of actually constructing the wall, this would severely disrupt the lives of many latin immigrants. In addition to the wall, Donald Trump has shown extreme prejudice against latin americans. His racist and xenophobic comments have been downright shocking. In fact, Donald Trump has made discriminatory comments, referring to immigrants as “thieves and rapists”.

George Soros is working hard to make sure that Immigrant Voters Win PAC is well funded and successful. He has given money of his own to this organization. In fact, his donation has been exceptionally large. The organization has been funded a total of 15 million dollars. It’s quite uncommon for a liberal political action organization to have this kind of funding. Since they are so well funded, Immigrant Voters Win PAC is going to be able to more easily attain their goals.

Is Socialism Bad for America? Lets Ask Halvorssen.

Published Post author

A recent interview carried out by Fox News featured Thor Havlorssen, President of the Human Rights Foundation. The point in the interview was to discuss why Socialism was a poor choice, politically, for America.

Halvorssen expressed concern regarding the nature of Socialism being applied to a government such as the United States, with its far reaching history of corrupt politicians abusing various loopholes within written law to increase their political standing, wealth, and power. A system which gives so much control to the government is potentially at risk of being abused by these very same individuals, the difference now being that they can do it legally.

The interview does stray widely as it goes on, with Halvorssen avoiding the direct line of questioning by the hostess by answering it partially every time before jumping to another separate point. Fox News is often very clear on who it does and doesn’t support in any given election, and Havlorssen knows that anything said showing his support for Bernie would immediately end the interview, which is why he holds off on mentioning his donation to Sander’s campaign till the end of the interview.

Finally, in regards to the other candidates, he expresses concern over Clinton for accepting “donations” from violent dictatorships around the world, his degree revolves around possessing knowledge of these very people. He reiterates that while Socialism has the potential for abuse, he cannot support a candidate who accepts money from such notorious individuals. Trump is not openly discussed, but simply mentioned as the Republican Front Runner, followed by nervous laughter from both parties.

In the end the interview turns to personal bits about Thor Halvorssen, completely dropping the Socialism discussion, as he obviously will not being saying anything negative regarding the matter.
