A new Bob Parsons travel video is now online…but no animals lose their lives.
A new Bob Parsons travel video has surfaced, but this one won’t be as controversial as his Zimbabwe ones.
Parsons traveled to Haiti with his wife Renee to see how the $1 million he has donated since the earthquake was being used. The money was donated to Hope for Haiti, an efficient charity that spends 95% of its money directly to support those in need.
Parsons posted the video on his blog. It’s fairly moving to see the troubles people of Haiti have just trying to get basic medicine and education.
The Go Daddy founder says the trip and video have nothing to do with the controversy surrounding his recent elephant hunting in Zimbabwe. From a company press release:
Bob rejects any suggestion the trip was designed to negate recent condemnation over his March visit to Africa. “The idea that I did this to counter any criticism is nonsense,â€ Parsons declared. “This trip was planned months ago, our donations were delivered well before my Zimbabwe trip and the people who know me will tell you, I don’t really care what people think about me â€¦ I do care about using what success I’ve had to help those less fortunate.â€
Go Daddy is running a “Round Up for Charity” program in which customers can round up their purchases to the nearest dollar and have that portion donated to Hope for Haiti. Go Daddy matches all of the round up donations.
