Stream Energy Creates “Stream Cares”

Hurricane Harvey was one of the deadliest storms to hit the Houston area in recent memory. People tuned in all over to watch devastating waters destroy entire neighborhoods and take the lives of many individuals. When the storm ended, Stream Energy stepped up as one of the first companies to help rebuild the devastated community. Stream Energy is a company that prides itself for doing philanthropic works to better its community. The company opened a new branch called “Stream Cares” with the sole purpose of seeking opportunities to provide charitable works throughout the state of Texas.

It is not very common for a corporation to dedicate a sole branch to philanthropy, but it provides corporations a few advantages. This gives a chance for the corporation to give back locally and the local community ends up respecting the company even more. This could potentially increase the clientele of the corporation and make it more profitable. Corporations will often make sure their philanthropic acts are well-publicized. This can be helpful when a corporation is found to be involved in a scandalous act or when they face hard economic times.

Corporations in the United States are extremely generous. It is estimated that corporations gave $19 billion to charitable foundations in 2016. This doesn’t include the money these businesses gave to scholarships and other causes.

Stream Energy has worked many years with organizations such as the Red Cross and Habitat for Humanity. One cause that the associates at stream Energy are extremely passionate about is homelessness., Stream Energy partners with Hope Supply Company to cover an event called the “Splash for Hope”. This is an event where the two companies pay for over a thousand homeless children to enjoy a fun day at a local water park. This is a great opportunity because many the children have never experienced a water park in their lives.

In late 2016, North Texas was hit with multiple tornadoes. The associates at Stream Energy immediately stepped up to assist in the community. They worked with the Salvation Army to raise funds for the individuals who had lost their homes. The company doubled the funds that the associates raised and gave it for the cause to rebuild the community.

George Soros Looks Towards A Fairer Future For The People Of U.S.

The future of the U.S. is an issue George Soros has been concerned with for many decades as he has made his home in the country after leaving Hungary as a refugee in the 1940s. After arriving in the 1950s from the U.K. after completing a refugee journey a refugee journey from his native Hungary taking him to the London School of Economics; Forbes reports George Soros understands what everyday life is like for people within the U.K. and U.S. after he worked his way through school as a waiter and kitchen poster while attending the London School of Economics. Creating a fairer future for the people of the U.S. and the democratic nations of the world means bringing about equality which Soros has done with his backing of Presidential candidate Hillary Clinton and the appointment of Dawn Fitzpatrick as the head of his own Soros Fund Management.

Politico reports George Soros made his decision to back Hillary Clinton in her bid to become the first female President of the U.S. during the Presidency of Barrack Obama; the Obama Administration has been seen by George Soros as failing to achieve the liberal agenda President Obama promised upon his initial election in 2008. As one of the best known financial backers of the Democratic Party, George Soros is viewed by the majority as providing a range of support for liberal causes and candidates, however, the Hungarian born hedge fund manager did not become involved in the election process to any great effect in both 2008 and 2012. Some reports have placed the level of giving of George Soros in 2012 at just $1 million towards the campaign fund of President Barrack Obama.

The future of the U.S. has always been a concern for George Soros as he feels the Constitution of the nation is a document that remains fluid and must be argued and fought for in the face of right-wing politicians and parties. A follower of the open society theory popularized by Karl Popper, Soros believes the dominant nature of capitalist America makes it more difficult than ever before for the U.S. to build a successful future for its citizens. Soros believes the billionaire donor class he himself belongs to are a part of the problem damaging the fabric of U.S. society through the personal influence individual donors have over politicians and parties. During the campaign season for the 2016 Presidential election, George Soros aligned himself with the End Citizens United campaign operating a traditional PAC where the highest level of financial donation is limited to just $5,000. Soros provided the campaign with the maximum donation and has been reported by Politico to feel multi-million dollar donations during elections are “odious”.

George Soros Returns to Politics, Sparks Growth in Progressive Party.

The political scene in the United States has changed dramatically over the past year, in a number of important and heavy ways. To start off, the 2016 Presidential Election saw the rise of Donald Trump as the face of the Republican party. This shift in focus for one of the largest political parties in the United States was met with trepidation by anyone with a clear sense of progressive purpose including one man by the name of George Soros. Soros, a progressive investor who made billions as a hedge fund manager, has been uniquely focused on creating a better place for social justice and democratic values around the world. It is easy to see why he was so alarmed to see Donald Trump rise in power. In fact, it was the key contributing factor to his return to politics.

For decades George Soros has served largely as the greatest boogeyman that America’s right wing can blame problems on. Their reasoning is simple: George Soros is a top billionaire who is willing to put the common people before his own income. Soros has been politically active throughout his entire life. He first rose to political attention as a supporter for Al Gore in his presidential campaign against George Bush. Soros would also contribute to John Kerry’s campaign. Soros has long been a liberal and progressive stalwart and he saw the need for people like him during Trump’s rise during the election.George Soros and Donald Trump have never seen eye to eye. Trump’s brand of caustic rhetoric and his abuse toward social justice and equality has been well documented. In fact, Soros has gone so far as to call out Donald Trump for ‘stoking the fears of ISIS‘ thanks to his firebrand of fear-mongering. So, Soros decided to get involved where he could help out the most — with the Hillary Clinton campaign.

Soros jumped in to become one of the biggest donors to the Democratic party in 2016. He brought in nearly $25 million to Clinton’s campaign and those in the progressive party. He donated $7 million directly to pro-Clinton PACs while also supporting some of his key platforms: immigration reform, criminal justice reform, and voting rights. Donations to ‘Immigrants Voters Win’, ‘Voting Rights Trust’ and ‘Priorities USA Action’ helped to fuel that fight. The return of George Soros to the political scene did more than just boost Clinton’s fundraising numbers, it also motivated more liberal donors to get involved. Among those newly revitalized donors were Tom Steyer, Don Sussman, Haim Saban and Fred Eychaner. George Soros leads the charge and for good reason. He’s been one of the most giving philanthropists in the world, donating nearly $12 billion through the Open Society Foundations.
