So many are good and committed to the right values in this world. To name some:
- The Irving Moskowitz Foundation is a charitable foundation which has a simple precept and motto - ’He who has saved one life, it is as if he has saved the world’ and they use that as the simple precept for the many they have helped worldwide
- Elie Hirschfeld is a trustee for over 30 years of the Continuum Health Partners group of hospitals, where his donations have topped over 1 million dollars. He started giving to these hospitals after witnessing the miracle of life – his first two children were born at Roosevelt Hospital. One in every four NYC hospital patients is treated by this group.
- Others, like Quadriga Art have helped over 500 of the world’s most successful non-profits around the world and believes that non-profits are saving lives, changing the world and making a difference. They help people with non-profits in a wide variety of arenas – from health and medicine to education and culture, social services to children’s welfare.
- Jay Sekulow and the ACLJ are devoted to ethics and values. One of their most recent projects is opposing a top FCC Commissioner who wants every broadcast station in America to undergo a public value test where the FCC can take away a stations license if it doesn’t like what it hears. The ACLJ believes The Federal Communications Commission has no business telling broadcasters what to air. They fight and challenge what they see as injustice wherever it is.
