In a career that has seen considerable donations to political organizations, Dick DeVos and his wife Betsy have also become known for their contributions to charity, which total nearly $139 million. Information about the couple’s giving was made public as part of the vetting procedure when Mrs. DeVos was nominated for the post of United States Education Secretary. For years, the couple has been a major force in Republican politics, starting with Dick’s father, Richard DeVos who was the co-founder of Amway. A big emphasis of their philanthropy has been placed on education, with nearly $3 million donated to educational causes in 2015. An additional $357,000 was awarded from the Dick and Betsy DeVos Family foundation to organizations that support education reform. Dick believes that all kids need to have the education necessary so that they can achieve their dreams. Among the schools that Dick and his wife Betsy donated to in 2013 (which were primarily Michigan schools) were Ferris State University in Grand Rapids, Compass College of Cinematic Arts in Grand Rapids, Northland University in Midland, and Rehoboth Christian School in New Mexico. Mr. DeVos lets it be known that the aim of their donations is to help and serve people.
Dick and Betsy are the patrons of the West Michigan Aviation Academy, the first aviation themed charter school in the United States, located at the Gerald R. Ford International Airport. The school boosts an 86 percent graduation rate, with more than one third being economically disadvantaged. In addition to education, the DeVos’s have donated heavily to Arts and Culture, believing that the future of arts management is important to the global community. In 2006 they were also instrumental in the construction of a children’s hospital in the Spectrum Health System, with their gift of $12.5 million. This hospital has helped improve the survival rates of children diagnosed with neuroblastoma.
Dick and Betsy DeVos became the heirs to their family fortunes, his from the Amway Corporation founded by his father Richard, and she from the Prince Corporation, founded by her father Edgar Prince. Dick also served as the CEO of Amway from 1993 to 2002. Betsy has been hugely responsible for the expansion of charter schools in the country, while Dick helped to pass the 2012 law that enabled Michigan to become a right-to-work state.

About Richard Blair
Richard Blair of Wealth Solutions attributes much of his success to growing up in a family of educators. He witnessed firsthand how his grandmother and mother, as teachers, were able to increase a person’s confidence and knowledge. Once he was older he realized that he also wanted too positively affect others lives. But instead of being a teacher he decided to go into finance. Which is a decision he may have never made without being so drawn to the world of education because of his grandmother, mother, and now wife’s occupation. He is a rarity in the world today as both a financial advisor and human being.

David G. McDonald, known to some as Dave, serves as the President/COO at OSI Group LLC, a global leading food processing company. Born and raised in Iowa State in the Midwestern United States.
David McDonald graduated from Iowa State University class of 1987 with a Bachelor’s degree in animal science. Quite a hardworking man, David has gone on to acquire serious entrepreneurial skills that have assured him a position at the helm of the meat and food processing industry. He is also the current Chairman of the North American Meat Institute and a Director of the Mafrig Global Foods Company in Sao Paulo, Brazil.
Based in Aurora, Illinois, OSI Group is one of the largest privately owned companies in the United States of America.

For more than twenty years now, OSI Group’s presence has been felt in China since their inception in 1992. With a total of eight factories in the country and two more that are underway, the company will be the largest poultry producer in China. In a recent interview, David McDonald OSI Group pointed out that the company is making major improvements in the beef sector as it recently commissioned a beef processing plant in Poland.
A recent achievement of OSI Group was the purchase of Baho Foods, a Dutch meat processing company operating in Germany and the Netherlands. It was a big step in the expansion to Europe since Baho foods with over 60 years in operation and five subsidiary companies, operates in a total of 18 European countries. “Adding Baho Food to our OSI Europe business gives OSI a broader presence in Europe,” said David. And this is true for other parts of the world too like India where the company is surely taking over the market for meat and other processed foods.

For example, a surgeon can use bone from the hip to rebuild the jaw. With this new treatment option, bio-implants are set to replace the demand for autogenous bone transplants.
The revolutionary treatment has many advantages over traditional surgical options. First, it is considered fairly non-invasive in comparison to similar traditional procedures that achieve the same effect. It is quick and cost-effective.

The surgery itself takes about a quarter of the time. The procedure leaves virtually no wounds or significant scars. Consequently, you require minimal hospital admission time for recovery. It allows patients to enjoy reduced surgery and recovery time.
This leads to a slashed healthcare bill. Faster recovery time means you can get back to your regular activities quicker. The procedure itself is still expensive due to a shortage of the protein required to trigger the bone regeneration process. Cameron Clokie has turned to biotechnology to come up with ways of obtaining the protein in commercially viable quantities that will make the treatment affordable.
Currently, he is a professor and head of the oral and maxillofacial surgery unit at Toronto University.
He also runs a busy practice focused on bone regeneration and facial reconstruction. He has won numerous industry and research awards. For example in 2000, he won the best implant paper presented awarded by the International Association for Dental Research.
A 2010 decision by the Supreme Court of the United States has made it possible for corporations, labor unions, and other institutions to donate unlimited amounts of untraceable money to our elections. This decision makes it possible for billionaires and corporations to significantly influence our elections in their efforts to gain significant political power. This decision has attracted the attention and concern of millions of Americans who are aware of the potential ramifications of this ruling. To that end, they have formed End Citizens United, a political action committee dedicated to reversing this Supreme Court action. End Citizens United (ECU) realize this is going to be a long fight but are convinced by supporting like-minded political candidates, at all levels of government, they can eventually get this poor decision overturned.
In their April 25, 2017, press release ECU announced their first round of endorsements for the House of Representatives in the 2018 elections. ECU will make it possible for these candidates to connect with their over 3 million members and encourage them to make campaign finance reform a top priority of their campaigns. To date, ECU has endorsed candidates in 19 districts in 11 states. The list of endorsement for the House in 2018 includes Sean Patrick Maloney of New York, Jerry McNerney, California, Peter DeFazio, Oregon, Ted Deutch, Florida and Pramila Jayapal of Washington. ECU will be endorsing candidates from every part of the country. The goal is to regain the majority in the House and put a stop to the efforts of the GOP, who support the interests of the super wealthy and corporate special interests. ECU will work with endorsed candidates to fight Super PACs and dark money groups that are attempting to hijack our democratic process.
An example of the kind of impact the ECU can have recently was in the Georgia 6th district special election. A little-known Democrat named Jon Ossoff forced a run-off election in an area that was once considered a GOP stronghold. The ECU and its members were able to raise over $825,000 to help Jon promote his progressive message. In 2016 the efforts of ECU were helpful in the election of two new members of the U.S. Senate, Maggie Hassan, and Catherine Cortez-Masto.
Besides the 11 House endorsements, April has been an exciting month for End Citizens United. The group announced they were projected to raise $35 million for the elections of 2018. Most of this money has been raised through small donations, averaging only $14, with over $4 million raised in Q1 of 2017. This amount will surpass the $25 million ECU was able to collect in the entire 2016 election cycle, making it the third largest PAC, with over 3 million members and over 330,000 donors. The ECU will continue their efforts to help elect majorities in both the House and Senate and return our election process to the people.
