As President of 20th Century Fox International, Scott oversaw the release and marketing of several of the top films of all time – including ‘Braveheart,’ ‘Titanic,’ ‘Star Wars’ and ‘X-men’ – and managed gross revenues in excess of $1.5 billion dollars. In 2003, Neeson left Fox to head Sony Pictures International marketing operations. in 2004 Neeson resigned from his 26-year film career and began the process of his relocation to Cambodia, selling his home, car, boat and other assets. All initial costs for the establishment and operation of the first CCF facility were covered by Neeson, who now acts as the organization’s full-time Executive Director. In 2007, Scott was awarded the inaugural Harvard School of Public Health “Q Prize” in recognition of his extraordinary leadership in advocacy for children.

    What Scott Neeson did for Combodia and why its big Combodia News ?

Scott Neeson left Hollywood to save children rooting in Cambodia’s garbage dumps.

He sold his mansion, Porsche, and yacht and set off for Cambodia to provide food, shelter, and education to destitute children.

Scott Neeson’s final epiphany came one day in June 2004. The high-powered Hollywood executive stood, ankle deep in trash, at the sprawling landfill of Stung Meanchey, a poor shantytown in Cambodia’s capital.

Scott Neeson, a former head of 20th Century Fox International, cares for more than 1,000 Cambodian children and their families.

In a haze of toxic fumes and burning waste, swarms of Phnom Penh’s most destitute were rooting through refuse, jostling for scraps of recyclables in newly dumped loads of rubbish. They earned 4,000 riel ($1) a day – if they were lucky.

Many of the garbage sorters were young children. Covered in filthy rags, they were scruffy, sickly, and sad.

Clasped to Mr. Neeson’s ear was his cellphone. Calling the movie mogul from a US airport, a Hollywood superstar’s agent was complaining bitterly about inadequate in-flight entertainment on a private jet that Sony Pictures Entertainment, where Neeson was head of overseas theatrical releases, had provided for his client.

Neeson overheard the actor griping in the background. ” ‘My life wasn’t meant to be this difficult.’ Those were his exact words,” Neeson says. “I was standing there in that humid, stinking garbage dump with children sick with typhoid, and this guy was refusing to get on a Gulfstream IV because he couldn’t find a specific item onboard,” he recalls. “If I ever wanted validation I was doing the right thing, this was it.”

Doing the right thing meant turning his back on a successful career in the movie business, with his $1 million salary. Instead, he would dedicate himself full time to a new mission: to save hundreds of the poorest children in one of the world’s poorest countries.

Much to everyone’s surprise, within months the Australian native, who as president of 20th Century Fox International had overseen the global success of block-busters like “Titanic,” “Braveheart,” and “Die Another Day,” quit Hollywood. He sold his mansion in Los Angeles and held a garage sale for “all the useless stuff I owned.” He sold off his Porsche and yacht, too.

His sole focus would now be his charity, the Cambodian Children’s Fund, which he had set up the previous year after coming face to face, while on vacation in Cambodia, with children living at the garbage dump.

“The perks in Hollywood were good – limos, private jets, gorgeous girlfriends, going to the Academy Awards,” says Neeson, an affable man with careworn features and a toothy smile. “But it’s not about what lifestyle I’d enjoy more when I can make life better for hundreds of children.”

He sits at his desk barefoot, Cambodian-style, in white canvas pants and a T-shirt. At times he even sounds like a Buddhist monk. “You’ve got to take the ego out of it,” he says. “One person’s self-indulgence versus the needs of hundreds of children, that’s the moral equation.

Please share to your social circle to praise his philanthropy.

The stresses and worries in life EXPLAINED

stresses -worries-in-life

 

A psychologist walked around a room while teaching stress management to an audience. As she raised a glass of water, everyone expected they’d be asked the “half empty or half full” question. Instead, with a smile on her face, she inquired: “How heavy is this glass of water?”

Answers called out ranged from 8 oz. to 20 oz.

She replied, “The absolute weight doesn’t matter. It depends on how long I hold it. If I hold it for a minute, it’s not a problem. If I hold it for an hour, I’ll have an ache in my arm. If I hold it for a day, my arm will feel numb and paralyzed. In each case, the weight of the glass doesn’t change, but the longer I hold it, the heavier it becomes.” She continued, “The stresses and worries in life are like that glass of water. Think about them for a while and nothing happens. Think about them a bit longer and they begin to hurt. And if you think about them all day long, you will feel paralyzed – incapable of doing anything.”

It’s important to remember to let go of your stresses. As early in the evening as you can, put all your burdens down. Don’t carry them through the evening and into the night. Remember to put the glass down!

Nick Vujicic quotes

After finding that Nick Vijucic got engaged to Kanae in July 2011, I decided to add my favorite quotes from Nick Vijucic. People who don’t know much about Nick :

” Nicholas James Vujicic, aka Mr.Pillow (born on 4 December 1982) is an Australian preacher and motivational speaker born with Tetra-amelia syndrome, a rare disorder characterized by the absence of all four limbs. As a child, he struggled mentally and emotionally, as well as physically, but eventually came to terms with his disability and, at the age of seventeen, started his own non-profit organization, Life Without Limbs. Vujicic presents motivational speeches worldwide, on life with a disability, hope, and finding meaning in life. ”

nick vujicic quotes

 

 

“If the world thinks you’re not good enough, it’s a lie, you know. Get a second opinion.”

” We can’t, and we should not, compare sufferings. We come together as a family of God, hand in hand. And then together coming and standing upon the promises of God, knowing that no matter who you are, no matter what you’re going through, that God knows it, He is with you, He is going to pull you through.”

“The challenges in our lives are there to STRENGTHEN our CONVICTIONS. They are NOT there to run us over.”

“I never met a bitter person who was thankful. Or a thankful person who was bitter.”

“If I fail, I try again, and again, and again. If YOU fail, are you going to try again? The human spirit can handle much worse than we realize. It matters HOW you are going to FINISH. Are you going to finish strong?”

“If you have the desire and passion to do something, and it’s within God’s will, you will achieve it.”

“In life you have a choice: Bitter or Better? Choose better, forget bitter.”

“If I fail, I try again, and again, and again. If YOU fail, are you going to try again? The human spirit can handle much worse than we realize. It matters HOW you are going to FINISH. Are you going to finish strong?”

“Life without limbs? Or life without limits?”

“Harapan dapat menyingkirkan halangan yang bahkan kelihatannya mustahil digerakkan.”

“If you can’t get a miracle, become one.”

“Are you going to finish strong?

About God, Nick said, “He doesn’t love you if…He loves you always.”

“You should never live according to what you lack. Instead, live as though you can do anything you dream of doing.”

“Too often fears of failing or being disappointed or being rejected paralyze us. Rather than face those fears, we surrender to them and limit ourselves.”
