George Soros is certainly one of the most iconic figures in America. Soros, who is a Hungarian-born American and economics graduate from the London school of economics, is a notable billionaire investor who controls a multi-billion business empire. George Soros’ contribution in the economic platform has earned him global recognition as an economic prophet. Also, he is known for his in-depth analysis of the global economy. His analysis on social, economic and political views affecting the European Union and the world as a whole are widely respected. He has given keynote addresses on various global economic and political forums. The billionaire investor is also a renowned author of numerous articles in world newspapers, journals, and magazines.

George Soros’s acts of philanthropy are not limited to charitable organizations only. The long-time Democratic supporter has been contributing significantly to the American Democratic presidential campaigns. His love for the Democratic Party has seen him being a principal financier to the success of the Democratic presidential campaigns. He has actively been contributing to the campaigns of former Democratic presidential candidates. In 2004, he generously donated to John Kerry’s presidential campaigns. Also, he was a principal financier for President Barrack Obama’s reelection campaigns in 2012. Additionally, he gave more than $20 million to pro-democratic groups who tried to oust the then-president George W. Bush.

George Soros has yet done it again for this year’s democratic presidential elections in a big way. The Democratic front-runner Hillary Rodham Clinton got a significant financial boost for her campaigns. It is reported that the billionaire has donated an elephant’s share of the total amount of funds raised for the 2016 democratic presidential elections.

The report also shows that the investor has contributed a total of $7 million in this year’s cycle to priorities USA action. A total of $ 41million has been raised towards Clinton’s campaigns in 2015. This is estimated to be a quarter of the contributions made towards the campaigns. This places George Soros to be among the biggest financiers of American politics since time immemorial. This act has put Soros as among few wealthy liberal Democrats who have shown willingness to spend massively in the Democratic campaigns.

The billionaire’s injection of $ 8 million to Hillary Clinton’s campaigns is a significant game changer to other Democratic candidates who have so far managed to raise a staggering amount of money towards their campaigns. With other candidates raising complaints about big money in politics, Hillary seems to be winning the race in securing mega financial support from wealthy Democrats like George Soros.

Sanjay Shah, Founder of Autism Rocks

Autism is a brain development disorder and effects over 3 million people in the United States and over 10 million worldwide. Autism symptoms usually show up after the first two years of a child’s life and are known for social impairments and difficulty with verbal and non verbal communication.

To raise money for autism research, philanthropist Sanjay Shah, founded the Go Fund Me campaign for Autism Rocks. The Go Fund Me campaign stages gigs by song artists to raise money. Beginning in 2014, the artist Prince kicked off the campaign, performing in London to raise money for research. Autism Rocks has hosted private shows with famous performers such as Michael Buble, Lenny Kravitz and Drake. All proceeds raised by Autism Rocks goes directly to autism research. The research is directed toward understanding the cause and effects of autism and who might develop autism.

Sanjay Shah grew up in a wealthy neighborhood in Central London and attended Kings College where he studied medicine. Soon after, he changed careers and became an accountant. His first job was at the investment bank Merrill Lynch and he then followed that with jobs at several other investment banks. He lost his job in 2009, at the peek of the financial crisis. Sanjay then decided to take a risk and start his own brokerage company. He began by renting a tiny office and hired just a few associates to help. Before long he founded the company Solo Capital and soon had a net worth of over $280 million.

In 2011, Sanjay’s 4 year old son was diagnosed with autism. This settled hard with Sanjay, so he immediately sought treatment for his son Nikhil back home in Dubai at the Dubai Autism Center. He wanted to help families who could not afford treatment, so he volunteered to donate money to the cause. Since he was retired and in a financial position to help, Sanjay came up with the idea of organizing music artists to perform at venues to directly raise money for autism research. And soon after, Autism Rocks was born.
