Alex Mendieta is well aware that not everyone is able to achieve the same level of success since he is a businessman who amassed his fortune through his own efforts after starting with nothing. Alex has never wavered in his dedication to using his philanthropy to assist underprivileged and underserved communities in overcoming immediate challenges and making a major and long-lasting effect on the lives of those communities’ members.
Alex’s lifelong ambition was to be a driving force for positive social transformation
When he was a child growing up in Colombia, he was constantly and profoundly aware of the large gap that existed between the affluent and the impoverished. However, nothing clarified the relevance of this notion more than when it was really put into practise by someone. A prosperous local entrepreneur who was well-known in the community made the decision to contribute his wealth to the revitalization of blighted areas that were located in close proximity to him. Not only was he surprised by the abrupt transition of the neighbourhood from slums to lovely mansions, but he was also surprised by the individuals he met, who seemed to be truly content with their lives. This opened his eyes. Alex made a solemn oath that he would bring about this kind of change for people not just in Colombia but also in every other country on the whole earth. He vowed that he would do this. But in order for him to achieve so, he would first need to amass enough money, and as a result, ever since then, that has been his primary objective: to accumulate money.
Alex had finally accomplished his goal, which was to amass sufficient fortune to be able to assist people who have the greatest need for such assistance. He was able to do this by working hard, being dedicated, and concentrating on the goal he set for himself. Alex Mendieta has already contributed more than two million dollars to a wide variety of respected organisations, yet he has only been giving to charity for a year.
In the next year, Alex will add an additional $2,000,000 to his pledge, bringing the total amount of money he has contributed to $4,000,000. On the other hand, he won’t be happy about it at all. If he wants his generous donations to be put to good use by as many charitable organisations as is humanly possible, he needs to be aware of outstanding causes that are underappreciated but are doing amazing things to help others who are less fortunate.
This is necessary if he wants his donations to be put to good use. Alex is of the opinion that people who are already a member of the community and have successfully integrated themselves into its culture are in the greatest position to bring about major change in that setting.
Urge by Alex
As a result, Alex urges everyone to make donations to causes and organisations that are bettering the lives of others, regardless of how large or little those contributions may be. After giving these neighbourhood organisations great consideration, Alex has decided that he would pay them directly, regardless of where they are located, which will allow them to do much more.
