     1Carlos Slim History

    There could be many rich people who only care about themselves and not other people. There is one man who was rich (who has over $74,000,000,000), but didn't care about himself, he cared about other people. He just has a regular house and no limo. He donated millions of dollars to schools in Mexico (which is were he lives today). Many people might not know about him, but you will learn about him when you read all these paragraphs.That person is Carlos Slim Helu
Carlos Slim's Family (www.google.com)
Carlos Slim's Family

Slim's father was born in 1888 in Lebanon. At the age of 14 in 1902, he immigrated to Mexico where 4 of his brothers already lived. Slim Haddad later changed his name to Julian Slim Hadded. Slim's mother was born in Parral, Chihuahua, Mexico . Her parents also immigrated to Mexico in the late 19th century. Her parents founded the first Arabic language magazines for the Lebanese Mexican community. In 1911, Slim's father established an important dry goods store La Estellita de Oriente. In August 1926 Slim's mother and father got married, and had six children, Nour, Alma, Julian, Jose, Carlos, and Linda.Then Slim's father died 1953, and the family was devastated. Carlos Slim was only 13 years old when his dad died.

Carlos Slim Helu was born in January 28, 1940 in Mexico City. Slim and his brothers and sisters were taught by their father the basic business practice. At the age of 12 Slim bought shares at a Mexican bank that tells me he was interested in business at a very young age. He studied civil engineering at the National Autounomous University of Mexico. He also taught Algebra and Liner Programming. He was a student and professor at the same time. In 1966, Carlos Slim married Soumaya Domit Gemayel. They had four children Carlos, Patrick, Soumaya, and Marco Antonio. In 1999, Carlos Slim's wife Soumaya passed away.

Carlos Slim started his business around 1972 in construction, real estate, and mining. Next he started a business which rented construction equipment. In 1976 he branched out by buying a printing business. In 1980 he formed Group Galas which had industry, construction, mining, retail, food, and tobacco. In 1985, he bought Reynolds Aluminum, General Tires, Bimex Hotels, and Sanborns, a food retailer. In 1990 he made a big purchase, he bought Telemex (a telephone company) from the Mexican government. He also created Grupo Carso a public company (first letters of his and his wife's name) These are only a few of the many, many companies he owns.Carlos Slim relates to me, by being kind. He is important to me because he helped schools and companies raise money and equipment. He made a difference in my life by showing me to be caring to others and many friends. He means a lot to me by showing me to be nice to my friends. He affected my life by changing  the way I am. I learned many things about Carlos Slim, like he donated lots of his money to schools in Mexico. When I grow up to be rich, I want to donate money, just like he did.

Soumaya Domit Gemayel

I found out that Carlos Slim is not only a great businessman, but a caring person. He has many foundations and donated extremely large sums of money, for example, in 2007 foundation Carlos Slim Helu A.C. created three Carso institutes: health, sports, and education. This foundation has already donated $110 million dollars to ALAS (it supports programs for children). He also has a sports Telmex institute, he donated more than $250 million dollars to create necessary conditions to promote and practice sports in Mexico for the Olympic games. He made a donation for 100 thousand computers to more than 1,400 public schools in Mexico. He has a group of doctors that perform free surgeries for poor people. Again, there are too many foundations to name them all. Carlos Slim is more than you think. He donates much of his money to people who need it. That shows that he is really caring for people, and he is a hero to me because he has changed a lot of people's lives in the world. I hope to be like Carlos Slim when I grow up. He has inspired me to be the best that I can be.

 5- "Slim" Book, the political biography of one of the richest men in the world, Carlos Slim Helu
   Writing the political biography of one of the richest men in the world is not an easy task. Osorno is introduced to this great challenge and devotes eight years to research and develop the text. His work includes three interviews with Carlos Slim Helú, who received it in his offices. In the Introduction he says that "journalism in Latin America usually comes from above and is directed towards those below. It represents a way in which power tells its truth to the people, not necessarily in which the people tell the truth to power. In 2007, when I first had the impulse to investigate in journalistic terms to Slim, the idea was to portray my country from a different angle (...) How would I then report to power? What would I find if I were to inquire about the richest man in the world with the same impetus with which he followed a popular uprising or with which he visited a community submerged in hunger? What things of Mexico could be appreciated from that other perspective? "
With these questions he begins his research that leads him to travel to New York and Beirut and to "formally interview more than one hundred people, from low-ranking collaborators to high-level businessmen close to and tycoon adversaries ...". His interviews include characters from the political and economic class, whose names are cited, but others who expressly ask not to be named. After the investigation, says Osorno, "I tried several ways of writing this biography: from the recourse of the letter to the richest Mexican in the world, to the choral model (...) Finally, given the characteristics of the character and the information obtained, I opted for a more timely record as the best way to tell the story of Slim. So my extensive research on him is intertwined with his views. "

From his three long interviews with Slim he states that "I must mention that despite the various sensitive issues I raised in my interviews, Slim always maintained an attitude of respect. If anything, some of the questions about controversial issues preferred to answer them briefly. I must thank you for the more than seven hours you shared with me for this book (...), above all I hope that you raise the challenge of knowing and analyzing one of the most important characters in the world today, based on data and questions such as: It has really helped to fight poverty and if you can live only for the money, with the belief that the economy is alien to social and political problems. "

   In the Prologue, renowned journalist Jon Lee Anderson states that "Diego Enrique Osorno has guts (...) His reports and research books have put him at the head of his generation and have earned him wide recognition of the journalistic community (...) Diego is not a journalist of contests and scholarships. What distinguishes it, in fact, is that it is the opposite of that. Diego goes deep, and in his own flesh, in what he is investigating. Is brave". He adds that "it is always very difficult to approach the powerful, who usually shy away from journalists - at least those who do not control - and because they have plenty of employees whose function in life is to keep them distant and ensure that every portrait of them be positive. "

But Diego, continues Anderson, "has managed to circumvent the roadblocks around Slim to achieve not one, but several encounters with him, and hold deep dialogues on a rainbow of diverse themes. That, of course, apart from his own research around Slim for several years. " In Diego's unforgettable encounters with Slim in his library, Anderson expands, "Slim is shown as an omnivorous devourer of literature - from political biographies and great financiers to Che's newspaper in Bolivia - and quite dapper. He tells Diego that he is willing to answer all the questions he asks him and that all he asks in return is that he does not put "many lies" in his book. At all times Diego is our guide, asking, looking, and sniffing everything he sees and hears, seeking the truth about Slim. "
The text narrates key moments in the life of Slim. Osorno, solves the story very well. It was not easy. It moves away from adjectives or subjective valuations, which are always a temptation, more so in the case of one of the richest men in the world in one of the countries with the most unequal and unjust distribution of income, to let the facts and people speak. Slim has his word, but also dozens of other actors. Osorno in a rigorous job confronts the versions. They do not just reproduce what they say. He is, yes, willing to listen and be impacted by what he hears. He does not hesitate to ask about all the rumors and myths that have been built about Slim. Osorno works a rigorous journalistic investigation, I would say that exemplary, that transcends clichés and common places. The argued versions and the hard data are the ones that have the word. From that story, the reader draws his conclusions. Osorno gives him the elements to make his own judgment.

  2- Carlos Slim pledges $50 million. Youth and sports are the target
Carlos Slim Helù, the richest man in the world for several consecutive years according to Forbes, is giving several municipalities a grant of $50 million to build or restore youth-related facilities.

“Slim allocated $50 million to carry out social, sports, cultural, and educational projects,” said Ziad Hayek, Chairman of the Higher Council for Privatization (HCP) said. Hayek represented the Lebanese- Mexican at the inauguration of the Becharri public park that he supported.

Three projects have been completed so far: Raffoul Fakhri Sports Hall, Michel Sleiman Sports Complex in Jbeil, and the public park.

The grant will be used to restore the premature birth wing at the Karantina Hospital and construct sports centers in Bekfaya, Hammana, Jbeil, Jezzine, and Becharri, among other places. Slim plans more support to the Gibran National Committee and the implementation of ‘knowledge centers’ across the country.

In Becharri, Slim supported the restoration of a sports field. Becharri Mayor Antoine Tawk said: “He is also funding the establishment of a playground and a cultural center with a cost of $1.5 million.” The center will include a library, a theater, a computer room, and a multi-use hall.

Roy Helou, Construction Manager overseeing the development of Jezzine sports facility, said: “The facility is a two-floor culture and sports center stretching over 1,500 square meters of land.” The facility includes a floor for gym halls, a lecture hall, a computer room, and a floor for sports games. It will be completed by the end of the year.

Hayek said that the philanthropy targets goals established by the Carlos Slim Foundation.
