The truth is not all millionaires and billionaires give their money away. Some of them say they worked hard to get it, and they want to keep it. That mentality doesn’t sit well with most Americans. Americans are big givers for the most part. In fact, without people that are willing to give to worthy causes this country would be in worse condition than it is now.
But there are wealthy people that are not afraid to give their fortunes away to help other people. Bill Gates and Warren Buffet fall into that category, and so does Dick DeVos. DeVos may not be as well-known nationally as Buffet and Gates, but the people of Michigan know the DeVos name and the family members that use it.
Dick DeVos is one of those wealthy people that became well-off through developing his career over many years. DeVos started working for Amway in 1974, and he worked his way up the ladder and eventually became President of Amway. DeVos is known as the man that brought Amway to the world. When DeVos left Amway, the company was doing more than $4 billion a year in sales. Sales are over $10 Billion a year now.
A recent article posted by Mlive.com outlined the depth of the DeVos giving. In 2013, the five DeVos Family Foundations donated more than $90 million to various organizations. About 27 percent of that donation went to community and health services; 13 percent went to faith-based organizations or churches, 12 percent went to art and cultural endeavors, and 48 percent went to education-related organizations. Most of that money, more than $60 million, went to Michigan organizations, and almost all of than $60 million stayed in Grand Rapids.
Mr. DeVos learned how to give charitably from his father, Rich. Rich is a co-founder of Amway. The elder DeVos started the company with Jan Van Andel in his basement in 1959. Amway has made the family one of the riches families in Michigan.
But Dick DeVos and his wife Betsy also give money to various causes through the Dick and Betsy DeVos Foundation. Some of the causes they support are The John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, Grand Valley State University, and several local charities in the Grand Rapids area.
DeVos currently spends a great deal of time working with Willow Creek Association, Thunderbird School of Global Management, RDV Corporation, Regional Air Alliance of West Michigan and Spectrum Health System. He sits on the board of those organizations. Dick and Betsy also manage The Windquest Group investment firm.

The founder of the Human Rights Foundation, Thor Halvorssen, has called on rapper Nicki Minaj to cancel a planned concert in Angola he claims is being paid for by a corrupt government. Minaj and fellow performer Gilbert Arenas are set to perform at a Christmas Festival sponsored by the Unitel company, which is part of the business empire of Angolan President Jose Eduardo Dos Santos. Dos Santos has been reported by a number of independent groups as heading a government that refuses to abide by the human rights laws of the world.
Thor Halvorssen has written an open letter to Nicki Minaj and Gilbert Arenas in a bid to explain why the concert they are to appear at provides the Angolan government with a boost amongst younger people. Halvorssen has always been at the forefront of the movement towards providing human rights for all, particularly after seeing many of his own family suffer abuses against their own rights. Both of Halvorssen’s parents have suffered human rights abuses; in fact, Halvorssen’s father was imprisoned and tortured despite his own diplomatic status from the Venezuelan government.
Despite finding success as a filmmaker Thor Halvorssen has also sought to publicize the problems of human rights in the world. The Human Rights Foundation is the first step in forming his own organization to fight the abuses people around the world suffer as they search for their human rights. Halvorssen has always sought to fight the injustices the people of the world face, and recently stated his desire to fight human rights abuses under both right and left wing groups. In 2004, Thor Halvorssen announced the establishment of the Human Rights Foundation, which opened in New York in 2005 with a board made up of former political prisoners, politicians, and well known advocates.
In recent times, Thor Halvorssen has published a number of open letters to those who are about to perform for a dictatorship or have already done so. In the letter to Minaj the history of the Dos Santos regime is dicussed to make sure the performer and her fans are aware of the problems the leadership of President Dos Santos has caused the people of Angola.
As a fashion blogger, Doe Deere has constantly come across rules and codes specific for dressing and doing makeup. She knows that these rules are only guidelines, but some people take the rules to mean much more than that. Many of the rules are weird and have no basis in reality, but are simply dreamed up by the higher ups in the fashion world. She wants these higher ups to know that the rules do not apply to her and she has a following that are consistently breaking the rules, as well.
Thanks to her beauty blogging and her makeup company, Lime Crime, Doe Deere has been able to secure herself as one of the top authorities on all things that are alternative to the typical environment that is normally seen in the fashion scene. She has made the decision to break fashion rules and has proven herself to be one of the best at doing so. There are many things that she likes to break, but there are a few rules that are her favorite for abandoning. She knows that you can break any fashion rule that you want, but these ones are her most favorite ones.
Colors that are bold should not be worn with other colors that are bold is a ridiculous notion. It is something that many people may lean on, but is also something that can be thrown out the window. Doe Deere believes that you should wear colors that you love and not worry about whether they are too bright or too fun. There is no such thing as too many bold colors in Doe Deere’s world because she loves all of the colors and thinks that they all go together. Black is not a thing for Doe Deere, unless it makes her other colors pop more.
If you want to wear a bold lip, you shouldn’t wear a lot of eye makeup. The same goes with a bold eye, but Doe Deere knows this is a bunch of bologna. She makes sure that you know you can wear a bold lip and a bold eye by showing off some of the hottest looks that contain both. She is sure that it is acceptable to do so and that this rule does not apply to her. There are many things that you can do that will enable you to have both the bold lips and eyes.
By making sure that you are always wearing black, your unnatural hair will always match. This is something that men and women with unnatural hair have been told for years and is a fashion rule that Doe Deere does not agree with. She regularly breaks this rule and tries to avoid plain black at all costs. This could be due to the fact that she likes bold colors in her hair and on her clothes. There is nothing that holds her back from choosing to wear the colors that she loves, whether they are on her hair or clothes.
Novelist and human rights activist Yeonmi Park remembers a time when she did not have the freedom to write about her life. In her words, until she escaped to China with her mother in 2007, she had no idea “what freedom” meant. Park’s humble life began on October 4, 1993, in North Korea. Park’s father, a civil servant, was arrested and imprisoned for smuggling metal. Park, along with her mother and sister, faced starvation as a result. When looking back, Park recalled on The Guardian that her family was often rationed something as simple as a frozen potato to eat. “We never questioned,” Park wrote in her autobiography, In Order to Live: A North Korean Girl’s Journey to Freedom. Park and her sister, Eun-mi, were left to fend for themselves for more than a month as their mother attempted to help their father escape from prison. When she returned, the girls were told that they would be leaving North Korea. Eun-mi fled a day before Yeon-mi and her mother. The 13-year-old girl and her mother were aided by a human smuggler as they trekked from North Korea to China by foot. The pair crossed three mountains and a frozen river, but the worst was not over for them. The smuggler attempted to rape young Yeon-mi as payment for his services. Her mother saved her by offering herself instead. Yeon-mi was taken by the smuggler and forced into marriage until he released her in 2009. She made her way to South Korea where she reflected upon her stolen youth. “The river wasn’t entirely frozen, and I couldn’t swim,” Park went on to tell others. “I never for a moment that I could die, but I had to survive. Somewhere, I found strength.” Park and her mother re-united with Eun-mi in early 2014 and after working a series of jobs, she began making a stand as a human rights activist. She has gone on to pen her memoir and has spoken at forums throughout the world regarding her hopes for reform in North Korea and of unification between the divided north and south.

More than 9,000 people were killed. More than 20,000 people were injured. Many people were left without suitable homes to live in. Fortunately, many organizations around the world worked hard to provide relief to individuals who lived in the country. However, more relief is needed. Majeed Ekbal has set up a Go Fund Me account to help individuals who are still suffering because of a lack of food and a variety of illnesses.
It is his goal to raise at least $1 million to help provide medical and disaster relief. The money will be used to provide clean water, healthy food, suitable housing, and medicine to individuals who were affected by the earthquake. Majeed appreciates money that is donated, no matter the size of the donation. He thanks individuals who use their personal funds to help individuals in the country of Nepal. This is something that is especially dear to his heart since he has many friends who live in the country.
Majeed Ekbal is well known in the city of Chicago as a successful real estate investor. He is also well known as an entrepreneur. He set up the company Expresso Inc. This is a grocery delivery service that helps individuals who are busy. It is a convenient service that helps people who do not want to go to the grocery store. They are able to find items they would like to purchase online and then these items are delivered to their home. Only a small fee is charged. This small fee is more than worth paying to most individuals who are busy since they do not need to use gas to drive to the grocery store, and they are able to save tons of time by not driving to the store as well as wandering around looking for the items they would like to purchase. This service is even available to individuals who live outside of the Chicago area. He has offered to mail via Federal Express items from large chain stores as well as specialty shops in the area to people across the United States.
