George Soros reveals his $18 billion donation to the pro-democracy organization Open Justice Foundation. Soros who has been funding the organization for years believes this pledge will strengthen the organization’s stand against the injustices inflicted on humans in the world.
Soros was born in 1930 to a Jewish family in Hungary. He witnessed firsthand what it meant to live under the oppressive rule of the German Nazi who were occupying his country at the time. Soros and his family managed to escape the Nazi rule even save a few Jewish families from the same oppression. Unfortunately, over 500,000 Hungarian Jews were brutally killed in what became one of the worst holocaust in history.
Joining Social Activism
George Soros vowed he will never let such a gruesome act of inhumanness happen again without him speaking up. For him to do that, he had to put himself in a position of authority and power. When he finally moved to the United States, Soros joined the Wall Street where he made his great fortunes. One of the major investments he made was betting $1 billion against the British pound. This bet paid off and Soros made fortunes earning him the nickname ‘The Man Who Broke the Bank of England’.
Open Society Foundations
As his wealth grew, Soros gradually gained the position of prominence he wanted. He could now pursue his lifelong dream of fighting for human rights. He founded the Open Society Foundations in 1984 with the first branch office in Hungary. Through the years, Soro’s justice organization has increased its agendas and even managed to establish itself on a global scale.
Open Society Foundation advocates for human rights democracy in over 120 countries. The society has funded many other similar organizations in America fighting against injustices like discrimination of the LGBTQ community, sexual violence, and police brutality on minority communities. Open Society Foundation was also one of the donors funding treatment centers that were helping manage the Ebola crisis in 2014.
Soro’s justice organization found a new calling after the trump election in 2016. Open Society is working hard to protect American citizens from hate retaliations after the elections. Soros has committed over $10 million dollars just to fund this cause alone.
Forbes recently announced that the Wall Street billionaire has made an $18 billion donation to his organization to help fund its agendas. Open Society Foundation becomes the second well-funded organization after the Bill Melinda Gates Foundation. What people do not know is that Soros has been quietly making an accumulative donation to his justice organization.
George Soros started off by donating a total of $800 to $900 each year to keep his organization growing. This amount eventually increased until it finally totals to the $18 billion announced by the media. Soros made the statement that he would still be making more donations to Open Society Foundation. After the announcement, he pledged to make one more donation of $10 million which he will continue as long as he sees his money going to a good cause. and more information click here
