Go Daddy Founder Visits Haiti to Help Earthquake Victims

No matter what your personal views of Go Daddy founder Bob Parsons are, I think we can all agree that he is philanthropic and he uses his money and clout to help those in need.

I want to share a video from Bob Parson’s blog, which chronicles his visit to Haiti to help victims of the massive earthquake that caused catastrophic damage. On this trip, Mr. Parsons meets with some of the people who are still impacted by the earthquake, and he also meets with some of the people who are helping those in need.

For quite some time, Go Daddy gave customers the option to  “Round up and give to Hope for Haiti,” and funds that were raised through this effort were given to a 501c3 organization called HopeForHaiti.com. In addition, Mr. Parsons’ foundation (which he founded with his wife),  The Bob & Renee Parsons Foundation, has been donating money to various groups in Haiti as well.

For all the criticism that has been lobbed at Mr. Parsons over the years, I think it’s good for people to see him and his company giving back to those in need. Kudos to him and those in his company (like my account manager Brad Larson) who give back and help others in need.
