The Philanthropic Right-Wing Sheldon Adelson


Because of his political activities,: we read a tremendous amount about “right-wing”: Sheldon Adelson: but media bias denies us news about the real range of: philanthropic interests.

Born in Boston to a Jewish cab driver father and a stay-at-home mother, the man credits his father for giving him one of life’s most important lessons of philanthropy.: : While they were poor, he remembers at home his father dropping his coins into the classic “pushkeh”.: : His father told him “As poor as we are, others are poorer”: – and that’s what drives Adelson to work as hard as he does.: : And its simply amazing the man’s desire to help people.

Very little is known about the vital work Adelson and his wife Miriam do via The Adelson Medical Research Foundation (AMRF), which provides funding for medical research including support for an estimated 200 scientists, medical clinicians and researchers, nanotechnologists, computer scientists, physicians, physicists and other disciplines, as well as 70 medical institutions. AMRF funds medical research in the areas of neurology, immunology and oncology. Adelson and his wife created a collaborative medical model where everything done is shared with colleagues and collaborated.: 

Earlier this year: Sheldon Adelson: was: given the distinguished Patriot Award at the 4th Annual Armed Forces Foundation Congressional Gala in Washington, DC. Adelson was honored for his support of the armed forces community.

Adelson speaks of the need to help people constantly — and its biased of the media to simply speak about politics.: : More information on their charities is available at: http://www.adelsonfoundation.org/

Ronn Torossian: is an entrepreneur and author of “For Immediate Release.”
