My name is Ronnie Moas from www.standpointresearch.com (stocks), www.moas-photo.com and www.philanthropyandphilosophy.com

Yes … I am busy. That being said, I am not too busy to volunteer for this wonderful humanitarian organization. In fact, before all is said and done, I intend on spending more time with Food for the Poor than I do with those other three interests combined.

We have enough in this world to satisfy everyone's needs … but not everyone's greed -- Gandhi

If everyone would just spend money on things they need, we would have money left over to lift the
poorest of the poor out of extreme poverty.

I am trying (as an unpaid volunteer) to raise (at least) $10,000,000 for Food for the Poor. Please donate via my page www.foodforthepoor.org/Moas so that I can track my impact. My page is linked to the Food for the Poor website and your donation is tax deductible. Additionally, please help spread the word – that would be appreciated. Since 1982 Food for the Poor, a five-star charity headquartered in Coconut Creek, Florida, has built more than 120,000 homes; planted more than 2,000,000 trees; built more than 400 schools; shipped more than 80,000 container loads of humanitarian aid; and installed more than 2,500 clean water drinking systems -- in 16 countries in Latin America and the Caribbean to the poorest of the poor. Last year we distributed $1.2 billion in humanitarian aid. Administrative expenses were less than 4%.

The apathy towards the poor, starving, and dying children worldwide is unacceptable. Every day, more than 10,000 children under age six starve to death as the world remains silent. It only costs $50 to pay for 200 pounds of rice and beans -- and that keeps a child alive for an entire year. Most of us spend that on a restaurant meal (or some other splurge) without hesitation, many times during the course of a year, while others are looking for scraps of rotting food in landfills. Please watch the two video clips posted on this page and other Food for the Poor videos on YouTube -- do not ever forget what you see there. I have given more than 50 television, radio, and magazine interviews in recent years. The link above to the video interview with Abby Martin, is one of my favorites, and ties in well with what I am trying to accomplish – shifting consciousness, and raising funds and awareness. Please check it out and share.

Anyone who has two shirts should share with the one who has none,

and anyone who has food should do the same -- Luke 3:11

I have spent quite a bit of time at Food for the Poor (global) headquarters in Coconut Creek, Florida -- 40 miles northeast from where I live (in Miami Beach). I have also spent significant time at their Haitian headquarters near Port au Prince. This is a well-run and efficient organization that can send a 35,000-pound container of rice and beans from here (US) to our (poorest of the poor) neighbors in the Caribbean and Latin America for less than $10,000! We are able, with just $7,200, to build a double-unit concrete home and take a family of 6-8 people off the street. That is what many spend on a family vacation.

The King will reply -- Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me -- Matthew 25:40

In some countries there are government and World Development Bank (100%) matches which, in effect, doubles what we can do with your donation. There are many people in the US (and worldwide) who spend $2,500,000 (or more) on top of what they need for their own personal residence and comfort. We take a homeless person off the street for $1,000 and allow them to live with a minimum level of dignity – a concrete home with a toilet, electricity and running water. Simple Math ... $1,000 X 2,500 = 2,500,000. Do we really live in a world where the comfort of one person is more important than the comfort of 2,500 homeless individuals?

A few minutes away from where I live there are people who spent $20,000,000-$40,000,000 on their own personal residence and another $5,000,000-$10,000,000 on their yacht. They need the yacht to entertain their guests, because the mansion is not sufficient (sarcasm) … and God forbid if their neighbor has a bigger yacht, they feel the urge to upgrade. This is the world we live in. Everything goes to the top of the vulture capitalist pyramid. Remember, it is rare that anyone gets to the top of the pyramid without stepping on people along the way.

I always remind people that if they were born to different parents; with lower intelligence; lower appetite for risk; and in a different setting; with fewer opportunities -- they would be the ones selling fruit on a street corner in a third-world country for three dollars a day. PLEASE TREAT MY REQUEST TO ASSIST THE POOR THE SAME WAY YOU WOULD WANT A REQUEST FOR ASSISTANCE TO BE HANDLED IF YOU WERE IN THEIR PLACE. Today, nearly one billion people (14%) worldwide ARE living in extreme poverty -- on less than $4 a day. They have no access to toilets, electricity and clean running water, while the top 1% has more than the bottom 99% … and 75 times more than the bottom 50%. 

Many ask why I am not helping poor Americans instead. The answer is that the poorest of the poor children in the Caribbean and Latin America live in worse conditions -- squalor -- a state of being extremely dirty and unpleasant, especially as a result of poverty or neglect. Additionally, money goes a longer way down there. I recently returned from a humanitarian mission Haiti. After giving a homeless mother, and her five kids, keys to their new home, I gave her the US$100 I had in my pocket. To my surprise, she replied – God Bless You, now I can start my own business. Yes, she can start a business in Haiti with $100.

During my recent trip to Haiti, I was stunned when someone at their accounting department (at the Haiti headquarters) told me that the $360 million dollars in humanitarian aid that Haiti received last year from FFTP (out of the total $1.2 billion distributed in the Caribbean and Latin America) was divided up among 4,500 beneficiaries! Yes, four-thousand-five-hundred -- nearly every orphanage, old-age home, hospital, school, farming village and fishing village received something from this charity. Magnificent work they were doing -- and we must assist them.

I hope EVERYONE who reads this will be generous with their time and money. No excuses PLEASE.

At FFTP every check that is signed must be approved by five different executives. FFTP is so efficient that they refuse to send aid to countries and ports where taxes on donated goods are applied. Here is the link to FFTP informative, inspiring and colorful annual report.

Together, we have the power to eliminate poverty worldwide and transform millions of lives. The money we raise through this page www.foodforthepoor.org/Moas will go directly towards providing relief and development initiatives for those in need. Please donate to this cause today to change someone's life now. Every dollar raised will benefit someone in desperate need of assistance.

Very little money turns over -- only 10% of the $1.2 billion in donations last year came in the form of cash. It is mainly medical devices and supplies, construction materials, food, clothing, toys, medicine and books donated by corporate partners such as Teva Pharmaceuticals, Hormel and Skechers, to name a few. If, for example, you have a hospital, and you tell FFTP that you need twenty hospital beds because of a shortage, they send someone to inspect and confirm -- if everything checks out, then the hospital beds are delivered -- that is the way we operate.

I have neglected all three of my businesses since finding out about this organization and I plan on working for them, as a volunteer, indefinitely. I have already visited farms, fishing villages, orphanages, schools, old age homes, and hospitals supported by FFTP -- if there is a better organization, I have not yet seen it. There was a hurricane in November that devastated Haiti. I just came back from my visit there and visited a FFTP village – they built 160 concrete homes in less than three months for ~ $1,000,000 and took 1,000 people who were left homeless by the hurricane off the street. As much as FFTP is taking in – cash, food, clothing, toys, books, medicine, medical supplies, construction materials, etcetera … it is not enough. There are still people sleeping in the streets, and there are still shortages of hospital beds, school supplies and everything else that you can imagine. Only 3% of the people in Haiti pay taxes so the government has no revenue and no ability to help the people there. The situation is similar in the other countries we operate in. Animals, homeless people and criminals in the United States have much better living conditions than most of the people we are assisting. We should not be ignoring these people any longer. If we look at Haiti for example, they are our religious neighbors and oftentimes they are devastated by hurricanes that would otherwise have hit Miami and Miami Beach.

Food for the Poor also has relationships with 16 other countries. I hope to go on humanitarian mission trips with FFTP in 2017-2018 to Jamaica, Honduras, Guatemala and Nicaragua. Yes, we have poverty in the United States, but FFTP is working in countries where the conditions are of squalor. If you see a naked child walking in the street, it is because his/her mom is washing the only change of clothing that he/she has. People living in landfills waiting for garbage trucks to drop scraps of food at their feet. People have no bathrooms in their shacks -- they urinate outside the shack and then wait for the rain to wash away the smell. I can go on and on -- but you get the point. On social media you can see photos from my recent trip to Haiti with Executive Director Angel Aloma.

I ask that you will support this charity via my www.foodforthepoor.org/Moas page.
