The wealthy in the United States have been associated with philanthropic activities for a long time. However, charity works have been used in the wrong manner by some rouge wealthy people as a way of escaping taxation among other ill intentions. However, all is not lost. There is still a group of Americans who believe that philanthropic causes should be done from the heart without influence from any quarter. It is an act that should be done only by following one’s belief. It should be genuine and not fake as some people do it. One person who is serious about the philanthropy mission is Tony Petrello. He is a leading CEO in the country. He works for Nabors industries. This is a drilling firm that is located in Texas. Tony has made a lot of wealth from the industry. As a result, he has been helping the less privileged in the society through charity works.
As a genuine philanthropist, he has been supporting his community in Texas in coming up with some ideal projects that will help the community in areas that have not been developed by the government. He is particularly known for his action in helping the medical facilities in the area develop. One of the biggest projects that he is helping with is the construction of the neurological center in Texas. The neurological center is supposed to deal with the issue of children who have been affected by neurological disorders. There are a high number of children who have been affected by neurological disorders, but there has been no medical facility that could handle the problems that they were going through. This is one of the reasons that Tony Petrello decided to support the project.
Apart from the passion for helping, Tony Petrello was also going through a similar problem in his home. He has a daughter who is suffering from a neurological disorder. This has put him under intense pressure to do something to save his daughter’s life. With all the income that he has generated, from his career, he has felt that he needs to do something for her daughter. This has pushed him to partner with the Texas medical hospital for children to create a center that will research treatment for children suffering from neurological disorders. Tony Petrello hopes that he can give his daughter the best medical care and this can be found only through supporting research work like the one being carried out at the neurological research center. He hopes that something positive will come out of the research.
