0superdave0 - I definitely appreciate what your doing justin, and if the world was full of people like you it would be a much better place. But you kinda come off like I do all these amazing things while you do nothing, and that makes me better than you.
Then if this is the case I personally apologize to you, honestly.

I would hope to be able to express to you that the only reason I feel like I have given up another year of fighting is because i truly care for these people. I've started to pursue college, and a degree specifically on how to help people... One thing I KNOW is I am not better than anyone else bro... In fact I'm a whole lot worse off when I'm pursuing my own selfish dreams than trying to be a benefit to others. So, once again I apologize if I have given off something other than I was hoping for. I'm no better than anyone on this thread... Literally. I'm no better than you... I've just have had a fire sparked deep within me and I am passionate about my Pygmy family.

Maybe it's kinda like when texting with a significant other about something serious it can be misinterpreted because tone/body language can't be heard or seen. Not saying that this is the case for sure, but if we spoke about it I'd make sure you knew I'm no better but just longing to help. Phone Post

Jason Reinhardt - in Africa in the Congo Jungle helping Pigmy's who are being denied medical care and left to die because they don't have the $15 (yes $15 for medicine) These poor human beings are turned away because the pigmys are looked at as half human/half Animal. WTF. Ya, that's what i said. And yes, for a measly $15 bucs, medicine would have saved the life of a little 1 year old boy who UFC fighter Justin Wren recently helped bury. For this one story, there's hundreds.
Floyd, I'm not judging you, and you probably won't even see this, but i just saw where you spent $50,000 grand at a strip club having fun. (which is your right)
I was just wondering if you would be willing to spend a fraction of what you spent in the strip club the other night in order to help UFC figther Justin Wren on his mission in Africa to help save the forgotten people....the Pigmy's. Do some research like i did. I was shocked and discusted.
Thanks, Jason Reinhardt
My opinion would be why do you care so much about what another man does with his paycheck. If you saw someone at mcdonalds asking to buy 1500$ of burgers would you approach and say you can save 100 pygmy children for those burgers? Theyre gonna tell you to fuck off and give your own money. I mean you can mortgage your house and save like 100,000 pygmys Phone Post

And its not that I don't care about the poor and starving but most people would rather spend it on themselves and not be questioned or guilted into it. Phone Post

I had some kind of extreme infection where I needed to take 5 pills at a time, 4 times a day... 20 pills a day until it finally exploded.

I've literally had 4 oral surgeons say either they have no explanation... or that it was a medical miracle. Can't say much except it's nuts, I don't know why it happened... But I am thankful that it cleared up because otherwise I wouldn't have made it to my trip to Congo. 

There has also been two Dentist on twitter that commented saying they've never seen something so bad. 

Two of the surgeons said it HAD to have had not just one, but multiple reconstructive surgeries and they have no clue how two days later I was eating hot pizza with hot cheese hitting the roof of my mouth instead of drinking protien shakes for weeks while the roof of my mouth was completely missing and seeing into my sinus cavities.

No probs. I found the criticism to be rather disgusting. I find stories such as yours to be truly humbling and envy trying to make a change on such a grassroots level and only wish you the best of luck on that score. Please let us all know when you get things kickstarted. I'll stay mud and at least put that subscription money for a blue name in your endeavour.

How would someone afford to go on one of these Congo trips, not being a tool just curious how someone would if they wanted to go?

To the ones being negative....I am not saying floyd mayweather doesn't give back to his fellow man and help the world. The post was meant to grab attention to justin's cause and i felt giving $50 grand to stippers might just do that. I like Floyd Mayweather and respect him. Please don't mis-understand my whole point here. It goes way deeper than the strippers.

bro...there are a million more charitable things to spend 50 K on than strippers. it doesn't mean that money may has to give money to your friend.

money may earned that money and should feel free to do what he wants with it. he doesn't have to spend it all on charity. if he wants to blow it on gambling and strippers, so be it.

i'm sure if people went through your finances, they'd find plenty of trivial things you spent money on that could have gone to saving kids in africa.

Mayweather can spend his money however he likes. He donates a lot of money and time to charity. If you don't like just go become the greatest P4P boxer in the world and spend the money however you see fit. This thread is for a good cause and I wish you guys the best of luck in raising awareness. Phone Post

What Justin is doing is great.

Unfortunately, most of the time charity doesn't work and alot of the people that participate wouldn't do a damn thing if it didn't lead to a tax write off or give them a chance to have a positive public image. I prefer to invest in the individual if I can. That way I can at least rest easy knowing that my money went where I wanted it to go.

http://www.cracked.com/article_19899_5-popular-forms-charity-that-arent-helping.html

Guys like Allen Iverson, Floyd Mayweather, etc. are some of the most charitable people living in the world today, but have poor public images because they are about helping people not lending their name to whatever cause is popular nowadays.

People in this country will step over their dying neighbor's body on their way to the Give Every Orphan a Puppy Foundation.

I personally don't give a shit what Mayweather does with his money as long as he is not using it for anything illegal or hurting anyone. That's not what I
Would chose to do with my money, but to each his or her own. What Justin is doing is truly selfless and should be inspiring people to do more to help those in need. Some of the comments made turned my stomach. Ive been involved with charity and fundraising for years but honestly have always worked with the same issues; cancer and more recently helping veterans. I am ashamed to say I've never contributed to the issues Justin is talking about. Bc I am so passionate about my own. My family and i recently started a non profit organization for veterans. But i see the need for help. Justin, did u successfully obtain 501.3c status? The grass roots work you are personally doing is amazing, but then you can get your cause out there to the public and get more support. Keep us posted.

Let me start off by saying I respect the hell out of Justin Wren for what hes done/doing and think it's a great cause.

Second, I wanna lol@ OP for saying "Floyd I'm not judging you, now let me tell you why I'm judging you...".



You can give Wren props without villainizing somebody else to stress your point. Floyd? What about EVERYBODY else? What about Jon Jones, the Fertitas, DFW, Chuck Liddell, hell what about ME? I may not be rich but I play Playstation 3 on a large 3D TV and haven't done shit for no pygmies.


Like I said, I wholly agree with your sentiment concerning Wren, but it seems weak and immature to try and villainize someone else for not doing so ( you may SAY it's not what you're doing, but sorry, I read the post). "THIS guy did it so why doesn't THIS guy?" Is a childish way of thinking.




So props to Wren, and nothing against anyone who doesn't do what HE did...

So this is just for comparison sake... 

 

Floyd spent 50k on strippers

 

Earlier today I found an IDEA for Honey Badger BBQ sauce raised 50K

 

And I just dropped my college from being accredited to no credit and just paying 80 bucks per class for each semester becaIse it was going to be 3,000 for the SAME mental knowledge or 50K for the piece of paper to hang on my wall....

 

Let me show you what I think is the worlds best spent 50K!!!

 

 

 

Everything is falling into place! TODAY I officially received my nonprofit status!!! 
 
1 Viking
1 Jungle
1 Year
1,000 MINIMUM slaves set FREE!
 

Donation link: (I'll be needing a landing page at least for Pygmy Project Info!) https://interland3.donorperfect.net/weblink/weblink.aspx?name=kbm&id=5

 
That not the only excitement! As this is absolutely my nonprofit, my vision, and me risking my own neck in the Eastern Congo jungle... In addition I have been granted a covering from over 25 year nonprofit that will hold me to the highest financial accountability there is! I will be required annual outside audits and is held to standards higher than the IRS requires :-) 
 
This is why it has taken me FIVE long months after an innocent infant died in my hands to be willing to accept donations... I didn't want something in the slightest to look fishy, or even in the SLIGHTEST have people wonder like is only natural. I wanted to take those doubts away..
 
The organization that is actually accepting the donations is a nonprofit I have been incredible friends with for years. They will basically be the middle man with the money, and they will do all the accounting (because I suck at it) and help me focus on just doing good. I will see every donation, but I won't be responsible for the administration stuff. 
 
Anytime I want to do something with the money I tell them with a written notice of what it is for first. Then they release it, then I provide them with a receipt afterwards for tax documentation. They also will give out the Tax Write Off Info for my donors or my "Support Tribe." It is my nonprofit. It is my vision. It is me who will be in the Congo, on the ground, for (hopefully) a full year. I will be the one MAKING SURE it gets where it is said it will go :-) 
 
The reason for this is I wanted and then SOUGHT out the best financial accountability I could find. The ECFA. The only problem was that it took years of being up and running to get their seal of financial accountability... So we had to get creative :-)  
 
I have friends that are so good to me they are willing to cover me with their 25 year seal of financial accountability with the ECFA to START my nonprofit! All that means is they do the paperwork, as a favor, because they really believe in this :-)  
 
My mission is to set a 1,000 slaves MINIMUM FREE. 
 
I saw earlier today that a Honey Badger BBQ sauce raised 50,000 in donations!!! $50,000 in donations will provide this...
 
-1,000 men, women, children slaves their FREEDOM... Their LIBERATION! 
-Hundreds (Around 300 acres) of already negotiated PERFECT uncut virgin rainforest to live in. 
-Water well dug, clean-crisp water flowing
-Agriculturalists paid... Corn & bean crops growing
-Tilapia stock pond dug, fish farming!
-Chickens and a coop for eggs & meat!
-School built!
-Headmaster paid! First ever officially recognized Congolese Pygmy school... I already know the Headmaster and had him agree :-) $600 is his yearly salary!
-Teacher paid! 
 
Guys I'm thinking this is going to be bigger than what I've written down here! That's why I say 1,000 slaves MINIMUM!  I've talked to a academy award winning documentary director & Oscar nominated directors and three other filmmakers! They think if I could do a kickstarter video and campaign to do a documentary that could be HUGE! Have the proceeds from the one year in the jungle documentary go straight back to the project! 
 
I hope that during my year on the ground I can have trips of medical missionaries and other nonprofits coming on to the new land with their expertise! 
 
I've seen 19 million dollar grants be given to Congo for agriculture projects... I've seems a 150,000,000 MILLION dollar project go in Congo to develop water wells... The only thing is I've never seen those benefits, not once in being there... What I have seen some LOADED government officials! I mean millions upon millions in their pockets while a family of 5-6 lives on an average of 85 dollars a month!  Maybe I'm just going to the very worst places... But that is where I see the MOST hope!  I'll let them jail me before I get bribed. They know this, I've been threatened multiple times before... And now I have the support of people who are loved greatly by Congolese :-)
 
I'm with a 50+ year Congo University that has been part of successful peace talks between rebel groups and violent standoffs. They just so happen to have the number one school of Community Development that says after I get what I want done for the $50,000 if there is another like $5,000-$8,000 they will build a UNIVERSITY RESEARCH CENTER attached to the exact land! Why? So they can have "on field" students as faculty that during their senior years they will LIVE at the research center and get COLLEGE CREDIT to continue helping the Pygmies! Helping them go from completely dependent slaves... To self sustaining, independent, FREE people! The research center will protect from outside corruption and locals close to it will be told by local Congolese university staff and students that if we can change the worst off living circumstances... We can then take it out farther than here! 

 

 
 
Last night I began making a video with one filmmaker to raise awareness... I am so thankful for The UG and MMA.tv
 
These people are worth fighting for!

Why would you bring up Floyd's name up at all. This post is stupid. Sorry I dont agree. If you need money start up a charity, or something, but dont bring up someone's personal life to bring up a point.

I did start a charity...

And I didn't bring up Floyd...

So... Is stupid the one who started the charity, or the one who obviously didn't read the thread? Phone Post
