Her hair had bounce, shine, and was manageable. She couldn’t wait to show her friends at work the next day. When she woke up, however, she noticed that her hair was limp and oily. She had the same experience for a few days. She decided to wake up early and wash her hair in the morning instead of the evening.

Dick DeVos Has $139 Million To Speak Of In Non-Profit Giving

When Dick and Betsy DeVos started their family foundation over 24 years ago they saw it as a way to help organizations in education, arts, scientific research and political activism impact the state of Michigan. Dick’s family has been supporting conservative institutions since the days his father made Amway Corporation successful, and the DeVos family has built several foundations that have started higher learning centers at local universities and also supported Republican political candidates. But Dick and Betsy’s total giving has only a small fraction that’s gone to political candidates even though Betsy herself was once chairperson of the Michigan Republican Party. The exact amount the DeVos’s have given to local charities is estimated to be about $139 million.

 

Dick DeVos runs The Windquest Group and also is the former CEO of Amway Corporation. While working under his father and later leading Amway, Dick was responsible for growing its customer base into markets in Western Europe, Australia and Eastern Asia. Only a small part of Amway’s profits came from outside the US before Dick took over, but once he started running the company it grew to over 50%. After leaving Amway Dick and Betsy decided to start investing in more Michigan-based companies that specialized in food service, energy and power generators, household storage and specialized technology. Phil Dolci was recently chosen to become CEO of one of their companies. Dick was also the president of the Orlando Magic in the few years following his family’s purchase of the team.

 

Dick and Betsy consider education to be at the forefront of their values, hence why then President-elect Donald Trump chose Betsy to head the US Department of Education by the time he took office. One of Dick and Betsy’s first efforts to change it was when Dick won election to the state Board of Education in 1990, but despite being able to influence policies towards private schools, the DeVos’s thought more should be done. About 10 years later they attempted to bring a bill into law that would allow private schools to receive tax credits and vouchers, but it missed the needed votes. But in spite of that setback the DeVos’s also started working with charter schools, and in 2010 they formed one at the local airport that’s known as the West Michigan Aviation Academy.

 

The DeVos’s have also given to local hospitals and in 2006 Dick was given the Spectrum Health Foundation’s Art of Giving award. David Rubenstein’s project at the Kennedy Center also was the beneficiary of the DeVos’s charity and was then renamed the Dick and Betsy DeVos Institute for Arts Management. Dick DeVos is also an active member and supporter of Heritage Foundation, and he also wrote a book about his philosophies titled Rediscovering American Values.

Political Action Committee Of End Citizens United Is A Reality Now

It was March of 2014 when Political Action Committee of End Citizens United was formed. End Citizens United is funded by grassroots donors. These people are on a mission to counter Citizens United—an organization that is a danger to the American society according to them. The members of the committee want to show to press, voters, candidates, and elected officials that billionaires cannot buy the US elections. The aim of the End Citizens United is to form a coalition which would reform the finance structure and pressurize elected officials to do the same. End Citizens United wants to get rid of Big Money involved in American Politics and change the political system that is vulnerable to rigging. To do that, PAC wants to finish Citizens United and role of money in the politics of United States. PAC is using members of the grassroots level to show their power and elect pro-reforms candidates on endcitizensunited.org.

End Citizens United was supporting Democrat candidates in the 2016 elections. These candidates were the ones who are against Citizens United, and they are interested in the campaign’s reforms in the financial system. During the elections, SuperPAC and Koch Brothers were involved in the rigging. They used the dark money to buy senators and representatives. End Citizens United was formed in August 2015. Within a year, the group raised more than two million dollars with the help of small donors. It was far less than the target of thirty million dollars.

End Citizens United is against a court decision which allowed Citizens United to operate. They want to pass a constitutional amendment that would reverse the decision. Dark money and strong political action committees were used by Citizens United in politics. End Citizens United managed to get a petition signed by many people which are demanding US Congress to pass the desired legislation on alternet.org. The number of group’s supporters is expected to increase as another alliance “Ready for Hillary” is gaining momentum.

By the August of 2015, more than ten Democrat candidates joined End Citizens United. The candidates included prominent names like Michael Bennet and Russ Feingold. Both of them are senators of Colorado and Wisconsin respectively. End Citizens United Member Carbo said that group wants to elect those people that are interested in changing the laws on endcitizensunited.org. The candidates would stand up against Citizens United and work to reform the financial system. Carbo further said that the group would also support candidates that are bothered by Koch Brothers and big money groups. End Citizens United created an independent section during 2016. It supported direct mailers, polling, and television advertisements of the candidates. End Citizens United is devoted to getting a constitutional amendment passed which would reverse the court’s decision of allowing Citizens United to work.
