Of the many generous families in present day, one family in particular stands out not only due to the generosity as well as the success of the family within the world of business, but also is a family that stands out to the others due to the fact that this family emphasizes what it means to be a community and to help a community grow. This family is known as the DeVos family and is a family that is not only known for their ties within the world of politics, but is also a family that is known to be the owners of Amway Corporation, a growing multi-billion dollar business. The business of Amway Corporation is an international business that specifically offers households all over the world with excellent products that are not only inexpensive, but are also of high quality. The DeVos family has made sure that the company not only generates profits, but that also the customers are happy with what is sold. Read her interview with Philantrophy Table.

Of the many members of the DeVos family, three individuals in particular stand out. These individuals are Richard DeVos, Betsy DeVos, and Dick DeVos. Richard DeVos is the founder of the company and laid the foundation to help grow the family name and to help the name live on far into the future. Dick DeVos has followed closely behind his father and has worked hard to not only create a legacy that will last, but has also worked hard to make his father proud of what he has accomplished.

Along with Dick DeVos is his wife Betsy DeVos, a woman who has always loved helping others and has created numerous foundations in order to support many initiatives across the country. Betsy DeVos and her husband, Dick DeVos are particularly interested in the initiative of education.

Mr. and Mrs. DeVos have donated to numerous scholarship foundations and have even donated funds to create schools. Visit Betsy’s profile page on Facebook.

Of the many accomplishments that Dick and Betsy DeVos have accomplished over the years, one of their proudest times was building a school in West Michigan that not only offers excellent education, but that also makes sure that children are encouraged to go to college. This school is known as the West Michigan Aviation Academy and focuses on inspiring individuals to pursue their dreams of flying. As an individual who has loved to fly and has his license, Dick DeVos and even Betsy DeVos wanted to create an opportunity for others to pursue their dreams for the future.

The Three Hunkiest Heads of State in the World

Published Post author

 

The United States finds itself in the unique position of being sandwiched between the two countries with arguably the two hottest heads of state in the world.

 

To the north, Canada is helmed by hot politician Justin Trudeau, a man so handsome that if his career in politics doesn’t work out, Hollywood might come calling. With his curly black hair and dimpled smile, the twinkle-eyed 45-year-old Prime Minister doesn’t look a day over 30 – and women worldwide just can’t stop gazing at him.

 

To the south of the U.S., Mexico is led by the Latin hunk Enrique Peña Nieto who could easily play lead in those notoriously naughty Spanish soap operas. Distinguished and handsome, President Nieto dark hair displays just a touch of gray which enhances a face so suave, stately and stylish, the women of Mexico probably vote for him just to keep him in the public eye.

 

Heading overseas, Iceland is known for its striking blond, blue-eyed Nordic people, but Prime Minister Bjarni Benediktsson has dark brown hair over his own set of smoldering Icelandic blue eyes — creating a face that could easily land him a gig as a GQ cover model.  He’s also really popular on black people Twitter.

 

Interestingly, Benediktsson stirred controversy recently when it was discovered that he had registered on Ashley Madison, a website for extramarital affairs choosing the username of “IceHot1.” He didn’t get into trouble with his wife, however – because she registered on the site too, citing what she called, “curiosity!”
