A lot of people are unaware of the fact that corporate America gives away a total of around $19 billion dollars per year to charitable causes. That is a lot of money that is going towards doing a lot of good. However, some companies are doing a better job than others. One that stands out as of late is a company called Stream Energy. They have actually created a whole new division to their business that enables them to provide their charitable services to those in need a lot faster and more effectively than before.
Stream Energy calls their charitable arm “Stream Cares“. It is a name that conveys what they are really all about. They are a local company that wants to help locals in their area get back on their feet after something as completely horrible as Hurricane Harvey.
The company watched so many people suffer for so long with this particular storm and felt that they must do something. There were literally people on the Stream Energy team who had family members and other loved ones who were hit directly by this storm. They needed to make sure that those individuals were going to be safe and okay. The only way they could do that was to start focusing their charity efforts on the areas that were hit the hardest. Stream Energy started to pump money directly into Houston communities to give them a boost.
Diapers, clothing, and even school supplies have been donated by Stream Energy to people who can no longer afford to take those kinds of things for granted. It is a terrifying thing to realize how many people fall into that category. They were just going about their lives normally one minute and then had it all taken away from them the next. Now, they are having to rely on the charity of companies like Stream Energy to help get them out of this hole. The company is happy to do it, but they also hope that their efforts are not needed for too long. They want people to be able to get back to their normal lives.
The non-profit advocacy group known as Citizens United went on to sue the FEC over the prevention of the political ppv video that they had produced during the 2008 election year. It was then that the case ended up being handed over to the Supreme Court which ruled in 2010 over the case. It was in the Citizens United case against the FEC that was centered solely on the electing communication forum stating that the movies made to be aired on cable, satellite or even broadcasted to your television or radio be overturned on the argument that ads did not break any rules during the representation for the campaign trails of the election. It was later then discovered that had the case been handled as solicitor General Ted Olsen had suggested, Citizens United would no longer be a problem. It was the fact that the ruling shared a remote connection to the campaign finance laws. View the group’s profile on Politifact.com.
It was then during the line of questioning that the lawyer for the government had found himself boxed in. It is the hope that the End Citizens United reform would uphold the Supreme Court’s ruling on the matter at hand. With the Supreme Court handing down the ruling of strict guidelines and rules for the election expenditures to be upheld because of the strict laws surrounding election financing.
With End Citizens United trying to overturn the rulings held onto from the courts, the Supreme Court ruled that there is reasons behind the rules concerning the amounts of money that can be contributed to groups such as SpeechNow. The law states that no one person, one corporation or business is allowed to go in excess of the money allowed to be raised by one entity.
End Citizens United is not about striking down the laws around campaign funds but rather to support what is being called as “judicial activism” by many of the critics. What most people are referring to as End Citizens United is that when you have money, it allows for free speech which is what they say is happening with corporations that accept donations above the amount allowed by law. It was not because of the money collected that money equaled speech but rather just helped it along with the matter of corruption within influence of elections.

There are many businesses who get their start online these days. However, not many of them find themselves being successful in their endeavors. However, this is far from the truth for GreenSky Credit. This company has quickly and out of the public eye became a financial giant in the world of finance and loans. They are a recently public company that facilitates loans for customers who apply for funding through their company app. The app can be downloaded onto your smartphone device and allows you to apply for funding for a variety of projects for home improvements.
GreenSky Credit was founded more than 12 years ago and is based out of Atlanta, Georgia. Going public has turned out to be a good decision for the company. They had originally expected to see at least 34 million shares sold at first. However, the first week saw the sale of stocks rise much faster than anticipated.
GreenSky Credit was very pleased to have raised more than $800 million by just going public. They have big plans for the raised funds and one plan is to allow the investors and the company’s management team to be able to take some of their chips off of the table. The company has been being steadily built for more than a decade and the original founding team still held a small portion of the value of the company ownership. The CEO of GreenSky Credit David Zalik, told interviewers that until now he has held a majority of the ownership in the company.
Zalik came to this country with his parents at age four from Israel. He was just 14 years old when he started his very first business of purchasing computer parts and then assembling them by himself in school. He never even attended high school and then dropped out of college in order to devote all of his time to growing his small computer business. He had never thought in a million years that he would one day become the CEO of a large public-funded company. He had spent much of his adulthood keeping to himself while he privately grew his company.
