Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) November 04, 2012
Top business coach and guru JT Foxx recently returned from a trip to Guatemala to see first-hand how extensive poverty and extreme suffering in that country impacts its greatest asset, its children.
“According to the World Bank, Guatemala suffers from highest rate of chronic malnutrition in the Western Hemisphere. What’s more, one in 10 children there die each week as a result of violence,” JT Foxx explained. “Children are our future, but these kids won’t have a future unless we take dramatic action. And that’s what I plan to do at my upcoming Mega Partnering VI event in November.”
“Success may be measured by how much money accumulates – and I’ve certainly been successful – but I’ve also been inspired by how philanthropists such as Bill Gates, Richard Branson, Eric Trump, and Warren Buffet embrace a spirit of giving back, “ he added. “ JT Foxx got involved in philanthropy as a board member of the Eric Trump Foundation, which raises money for St. Judes Children Hospital. This month he decided to visit Guatemala on a fact-finding mission to see how his organization might be able to help.
“ I've never been so touched in my life,” JT Foxx said. “I was broke myself when I came to the US seven years ago, but my plights pale in comparison to what these children go through. I heard about children abandoned in markets left to just fend for themselves, abused by their parents. dropped on the stoops of churches, or even sold to other people. These stories break my heart.”
“I visited the Casa Angelina orphanage about 90 minutes outside of Guatemala City. They provide so much love and care and dedicate themselves to seeing that every child gets a chance to go to college,” he added. “It is this type of change and influence that needs to spread all around the world.”
“Powered by our Children’s Future”
Recognized as the top business coach in the world and highly successful serial entrepreneur, JT Foxx is known as a tough-as-nails no-nonsense businessman with little tolerance for excuses. But a different philanthropic side of him has emerged over the past year. He hopes to use his extensive brand currency and circle of influence to become an advocate for children all over the world. At Mega Partnering VI, JT Foxx is introducing a new slogan, “Powered by our Children’s Future.” He’s bringing members from the Casa Angelina orphanage to meet some of the world’s top entrepreneurs and hopes to raise millions of dollars at the event and in the coming months. “We have to protect children all over the world.” Foxx said. “How we change is how we succeed ourselves. These children need our help to simply get proper nutrition and an education. The help we provide at Mega Partnering VI will be a start, but there’s so much more work we need to do.”
