Adam Milstein earned a well-deserved place on the 200 Most Influential Do-Gooders in the World list, which recognizes individuals who make the world a better place by his persuasive Facebook posts and tweets. Other prominent individuals who made the list include Bill Clinton, Barack Obama and Warren Buffet. A press release quoted Milstein as saying “My philanthropic work in one of the most important and gratifying parts of my life.” This shows in his efforts to highlight the work of various organizations and speak out against anti-Semitism through social media platforms and through articles and opinion pieces that Milstein pens for major media outlets.
