These donations have helped a number of candidates that might not have otherwise had a chance in the political arena have a chance at winning their race for office. In addition to the political campaigns that he has donated to, there are also the large number of social causes he has given money to in order to help and make the world better.
Part of the money that he donated to his Open Society Foundations will be used to help improve conditions in parts of Asia, where things are not as good as in other parts. There have been places like Nepal that have seen their share of war and as a result, these countries are damaged and the people that live there are suffering on a regular basis. George Soros hopes that with this donation of 18 billion that these conditions will improve and this make the lives in the area a little better.
In addition to the 18 billion that he has already promised, he has said that there will be another 2 billion donated in the very near future. This will bring the total amount of his donation to 20 billion this equates to more than 85% of his wealth. This act according to Forbes knocked him down several spots on the Forbes list of the richest people in the world.

According to an article done by Forbes, one of the things that the Open Foundations does is work with a local grassroots in Mongolia that helps those with disabilities to have equal access to the educational system as those that have disabilities are often excluded from the education system for that reason. Part of this money will go to help support the work that this grassroot organization does and hopefully help to give a few more students in this region a chance to go to school, and get a quality education. Without this donation many kids that would never have had a chance at quality education would lose out on a quality education. This is one of the reasons why George Soros is one of the most giving people in a long time and why his work will continue to help others for a great many years and Follow him Twitter.com.
