Dick DeVos has made philanthropy a major hallmark of his career both in business and civic duty. The Dick and Betsy DeVos Family Foundation has been the driving force behind much of his charity work, and he’s made a huge impact in the Grand Rapids area both in urban development and in local education. Dick and his wife Betsy certainly are Republican Party activists, including when Betsy served as chair in the Michigan Republican Party. But the DeVos’s contributions to local hospitals, colleges, libraries, museums and even churches have far outweighed any political donations. Most people have wondered how much the Dick DeVos’s give in charity each year, and it was recently disclosed that Dick and Betsy’s lifetime giving totals around $139 million.
Dick DeVos has been able to establish his philanthropy work in the Grand Rapids area due largely to his success as the owner of the Windquest Group and CEO of Amway Corporation prior to that. Amway Corporation was founded by Dick’s father, Richard DeVos Sr. who is also the owner of the NBA’s Orlando Magic. As CEO of Amway Corporation, Dick was responsible for multilevel marketing operations of the company from the manufacturing of its products, to the sales and distributions to independent business owners who could in turn sell the products to their customers. As Chairman of The Windquest Group, Dick has built a portfolio of investments in local Michigan businesses that specialize in clean energy technology, venture capital, clean bottled water products and home storage units.
Dick and Betsy have long fought for school of choice and more freedom in education decisions. Dick at one time won election to the Michigan State Board of Education where he worked to reform education policies. He later helped start the Education Freedom Fund to supply scholarship programs for low income families to attend private schools. The DeVos’s also launched the Great Lakes Education Project in 2002, and in 2010 they founded the West Michigan Aviation Academy, a special charter school with a curriculum based in aviation.
As a political activist and a staunch believer in free market economics, Dick DeVos at one time decided he needed to change the economic climate in Michigan by running for governor in 2006. He was unsuccessful in that endeavor, but in 2012 he joined a coalition of Republicans who fought to bring in a right-to-work law. Dick and Betsy continue to fight for education reform across the nation, and will have even more leverage to do so as Betsy was recently chosen by President Donald Trump to be Secretary of Education.

Every year we are treated to more and more Hollywood productions. We get to see the Stars at their best. But as each year passes we also lose some of those talented actors. Some of those deaths are due to old age while others are tragic and unexpected. One of those occurred on February 2, 2014 when actor Phillip Seymour Hoffman was found dead from an apparent drug overdose, and unfortunately becomes another member of the celebrity morgue. The actor had a very prominent career with many great roles. His funeral was attended by many famous actors and was even shrouded in controversy due to a retailer trying to promote their product.
Another actor who has lived a very long life filled with many roles in film is Gene Hackman. The 86-year old’s career spanned five decades with his last movie done in 2004. Though still alive, he may not be around much longer. His is well known for his passionate often volatile acting that brought his characters to life.
Another actress who comes from the same vein of acting as Gene Hackman is Kate Winslet. She has been able to adapt her style over 20-years to make her roles as life-like as she can. Her career was launched by the mega success of Titanic.
Though not as rehearsed a thespian but comparable to Kate Winslet sexy appeal, Sofia Vergara is becoming an icon on both the big screen and the small screen. She is probably more know for her thick Hispanic accent and salacious good looks, but she is quickly establishing herself as a versatile actress.
