How George Soros is Helping to Shape America

George Soros is a billionaire investor who has made his claim to fame not only his immense fortune, but his willingness to focus on fighting for causes that he believes to be just. Soros is a Hungarian born investor who currently resides in New York City. Soros is renowned not just for his philanthropic work but also for his work as a staunch progressive and advocate for political change through democratic means. Soros was last a huge player in the political game in 2004 when he worked alongside Al Gore but since then he has mostly been outside of the spotlight, focusing on change through his Open Society Foundations. However, the 2016 Presidential Election saw a seismic shift in the political landscape and as a result George Soros decided to return. Read his profile at Forbes.

To put it bluntly, George Soros thinks that Republican President Donald Trump is one of the worst things to happen to American politics ever. Soros flatly called out Trump’s fear mongering as “doing the work of ISIS” and he continues to advocate against Trump’s core platform policies which are anti everything that Soros ever fought for during his life. It shouldn’t surprise anyone that George Soros decided to jump back into the game in order to back progressive politicians like Hillary Clinton.

Soros returned to the Presidential Campaign trail in 2016 in order to support Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton as well as the rest of the down ticket progressive options. Soros would put in nearly $25 million via donation to a host of different PACs in order to try and offset the billionaire Koch Brothers that have made supporting Republicans a core part of their business policy. Soros donated heavily to Clinton’s personal PAC, giving a record breaking $7 million for the specific PAC. Michael Vachon, Soros’ own political adviser, pointed out that Soros had to return due to the nature of the stakes that this election had raised.

Being a billionaire investor willing to fight for progressive causes has turned George Soros almost into the perfect target for the conservative, right wing smear machine. Soros was a vocal advocate against George W. Bush and his incensed rhetoric against Donald Trump’s hate-speech has only fanned the flames of dislike between Soros and the right wing political group in the United States. Still, Soros refuses to back down and he continues to be one of the most supportive fighters for progress in the world today. Visit this site to know more at opensocietyfoundations.org.

What makes George Soros so special, and different from most billionaires, is the fact that he is completely self-made. Soros fled Nazi persecution in Hungary in order to work his way through the London School of Economics. From there Soros would sail to America where he would start, and succeed, with the Soros Hedge Fund.

Autism Rocks Making a Difference

Autism Rocks is an event started by Sanjay and wife, Usha. They developed the desire to create awareness of such a condition from the various times they saw their son suffering. In the condition, one faces the difficulty of communicating. In such cases, they need close care. The lack of knowledge from the people around them brings the pain. There is always an infringement on their emotions. Therefore, the couple settled on starting a festival that would sensitize people about autism. While less is heard about the cure, Autism Rocks focuses on creating awareness and bettering the living conditions of individuals with the condition.

The Dubai Event

In April 1st, Autism Rocks held a festival as a celebration of the condition. Families were welcome to the event and had lots of fun. It was a way of people getting to understand the challenges of the state. It created the desire to treat those with the problem with respect and patience. The festival was meant to raise awareness. Also, the event was to act as a starting point for extensive research on this condition. Therefore, proceeds from the event were collected and directed to research. Other donations were received from well-wishers and charitable organizations that shared the ideology on autism.

Sanjay Shah Denmark narrates that he was motivated to start a foundation after Snoop Dog, a famous rapper, showed up on his door. He was amazed that many people supported the idea, and he was just acting on their behalf. In fact, he was the voice of the voiceless. To date, Autism Rocks Festival happens in London and Dubai and has seen many celebrities attend.

He affirms that the experience that his kids got when he hosted Snoop Dog was fantastic. They talked and chatted for a long time, and the kids enjoyed so much. In fact, the visit by Snoop gave him more energy to revamp Autism Rocks. He thought that if he got such artists to his events, he would attract more people and raise enough funds to support autism research. It was not an easy task, but it finally paid off.

Sanjay moved to Dubai in 2009 after falling in love with the city. He was born in the UK but settled on Dubai. Currently, he undertakes his trade in Dubai and continues to conduct all his activities. The hedge fund manager has found comfort in Dubai and enough support to undertake his campaign.
