Raising Money for Autism One Concert at a Time

 

Perhaps one of the most widely debated childhood labels on globalcitizen.com today is autism. With an increase in the number of children identified, autism has gained momentum although there is still so little known about it. One prominent British millionaire put his ‘money where his mouth is’ in his crusade to power ahead the funding needed to support and grow autism research.

Sanjay Shah, the above mentioned British millionaire, was smacked across the face when his son was diagnosed at the age of two. Soon, Shah realized the need for more information about autism and decided to funnel money into a cause in which he would be directly involved.

Growing up in the sought-after neighborhood of Marylebone in Central London, Shah pursued a path in medicine before surrendering to the boring office life of an accountant. From this money manager career, he gained immense knowledge and revenue resulting in his early retirement at the tender age of 43. This opportunity enabled him with the time and money necessary to form his own company of Solo Capital UK.

Solo Capital afforded him the blessing of working with Done Events which produced an annual festival of music in Dubai. Having his hands in this effort sparked an idea for Shah to found his own charity for autism. Autism Rocks was born and the rest is history.

Autism Rocks generates fundraising through hosting private concerts around the globe. VIPs are invited to these concerts where big names in the music business are paid to perform and what follows are some of the heftiest donations to be seen. Shah quickly realized that children with autism need as much ABA (Applied Behavior Analysis) therapy as possible to enhance the child’s development; however, the expense of this therapy was simply not possible for many families.

Shah reached out to see how he could help. The first big assistance came in the purchasing of two minibuses for the hospital’s use. Shah’s son’s image adorns the sides of these minibuses so the ones they supported are easy to spot throughout their home city. Shah invests his own money to coordinate and put on these shows.

A $1 million investment set the stage for a mega two-night event where a jazz-inspired festival was born. Known as Blended, for its half reggae and half jazz heritage, this festival kickstarted the work of Autism Rocks. Teaming with the likes of Prince, Shah was able to organize a top-secret show in under 3 weeks of catapulting his own charity into the world. Now leaders in the industry are paid to showcase their talent in a more humbled venue of a crowd of 500-1000.

The future is bright for Sanjay Shah and his Autism Rocks charity. As can be detailed in many headlines and even a release on Register FCA, Shah aspires to work on an album. This album would be the love child of a variety of pop artists gifting one track a piece into a spectacular album that not only sounds good to the ears, but leaves the heart feeling good as well.

Advice on Raising Employee Job Satisfaction From Darius Fisher

Regardless, most methods of improving employee job satisfaction require someone become more involved with workers. Follow these tips to boost job satisfaction to keep employees returning to work over many years.

Offer Incentives
Ask employees about the things they want and believe they deserve. Many of them will likely have some suggestions to contribute to the incentive plan. Of course, the decisions are just guidelines to the end result, but listen to your workers to truly understand where their interests lie.

Encourage Significant Work
Give your team recognition when they do great things together or as individuals. Send emails, post bulletins or simply give them a moment of conversation. Regardless, as long as someone begins to show them care and respect about the work they do, they will be less eager to leave because they will picture leaders as people rather than bosses.

Update Workers
Use technology to make communications quick, easy and frequent. Most people do not enjoy being told about a project at the last moment and many do not have “last-minute” time and patience to dedicate. Too many failures to communicate, and the employees will start to take their skills elsewhere.

The suggestions given by these magazines are good. They not only help individuals when they are uncertain about their makeup but also help people look good.

George Soros and Hillary Clinton’s Shared Vision

 

According to Politico, George Soros has given $8 million dollars to help fund her campaign. This is great news for the campaign that has often struggled for funds. In addition to giving money himself, George is watched as a sign for when others should give.
After building his own personal wealth and the wealth of his investors, George started the Open Society Foundation. This foundation and Hillary share many common goals. One thing that the foundation supports are international tribunals to hold war criminals accountable. During her 2009 tour to Kenya, according to the Guardian, Hillary says she hoped that the United States would join the an international criminal court. The Obama administration has remained divided. While George Soros had supported Obama over Hillary in 2008, the lack of support for an international criminal court has greatly frustrated him.
Secondly, the Open Society Foundation calls for transparency and accountability in government. The foundation is most concerned with those that have lots of natural resources. During her 2008 campaign, Hillary promised to make government as transparent as possible. She said that government documents should remain unclassified unless their is a high security reason to classify them. The foundation has helped to create the Transparency and Accountability Initiative that helps harness new technology to drive evidence based policy reforms.
Third, George’s foundation believes that government information should be readily accessible. According to On The Issues, Hillary wants to make sure everyone in the world has access to the Internet through a mobile device. She has also condemned China for denying dissidents Internet access. The Open Society Foundation believes that everyone needs a great education. They have committed over $30 million dollars to improve the quality of education for black and Latino men in New York City.
George Soros earnestly believes in his plans for an open society. Many of those same ideas are shared by Hillary Clinton. Together, they may move closer to the vision.

Who is George Soros?

George Soros is the Founder of Soros Fund Management. He is currently worth nearly 25 billion dollars and has made many of his clients billions of dollars as well. Soros has made this money through wise investments and brave moves. He has been known to short currencies and provide his clients with a return of more than 30 percent, and sometime even 100 percent. The fund he founded is now worth 30 billion dollars.

With all of this wealth, Soros decided to pursue several philanthropic passions of his. He founded the Open Society Foundations in 1979 and immediately started pursuing its mission of fighting for more open societies, increased human rights and more transparent government. At first, Soros accomplished this by providing black South African students with university tuition during the apartheid era and providing support to dissidents in the Eastern Bloc. The charity is now in more than 100 countries and Soros has most recently put lots of effort into Europe and the refugee crisis. Soros strongly believes in the principles of the European Union and he is trying to help support them by assisting with the intake process of refugees and supporting institutions that emphasize revolutionary thinking in the social sciences department.

The Street has shown interest in Soros Fund Management’s decision to sell all of their stocks in Chesapeake Energy, Chevron and NRG Energy in the fourth quarter of 2015. The online newspaper was curious about what Soros knew that made him want to sell out. The article then went on to discuss the potential reasoning behind the sale. The reason was that the energy sector, as a whole, is suffering. Prices have been fluctuating wildly over the past few years. There have even been recent efforts, by oil producing nations, to freeze the production of oil so that the price could stabilize. This plan was foiled by Iran, who refused to freeze their production.

The article then cautioned investors to not necessarily follow Soros’ sale. Many energy sector companies will be releasing their earnings reports this week and that will give investors a true picture of where their money should go.

The article brought up another interesting point. It said that while consumers in America will now have more disposable income because energy costs are lower, there will be a price in another way. 5 percent of America’s jobs are in the energy sector. If this sector starts to slide, that means there are 9 million jobs on the line. And that does not include that energy accounts for 8.2 percent of the country’s gross domestic product that they export to others.
