Stream Energy is a company made up of community service. The company hires freelance independent contractors to go out into the community to build relationships with people in order to match them with the services that meet their needs at a discounted price. Stream Energy offers mobile phone plans, discounted clean energy, and virtual doctors. Each contractor earns a commission on each sale that they close. Outside of regular day to day business, Stream owns and operates Stream Cares, a philanthropic organization aimed at ensuring that the people in the community have everything that they need to live clean and safe. The organization partners with the Salvation Army, the Hope Supply Co., the Red Cross, and the Habitat for Humanity in efforts to expand its reach and change the lives of people all over the world. One of the main issues in the community that Stream Energy works to support is homelessness. Many people in the community are displaced due to financial circumstances, and even sudden natural disasters. One example of this is Hurricane Harvey. Hurricane Harvey dumped more than 50 inches of rain on the Houston Texas area. Many residents there lost their homes, their pets, and even their loved ones. Stream Energy was one of the first organizations to grant funds to the community to help begin the recovery process. That is only one example of how Stream gives back to its community. Another example is the annual Splash for Hope event. Stream Energy partners with the Hope Supply Co. to give homeless children an experience that they will never forget. The Hope Supply Co. provides the community with supplies they need such as school items, diapers, and clothing. Stream has partnered with this organization for over four years. Stream pays the cover and meal costs for more than 1,000 children. The associates come out and support the cause by helping keep order and monitoring the children throughout the day. The associates are the biggest fans of the community. They understand that without the community, they wouldn’t have a flourishing business. That is why when disaster strikes they are there to support and give aid in any way that they can.

Stream Energy is currently offering business services related to wireless cell phones, energy, virtual doctors, and the porting of phones. Through their companies Stream Energy and Stream Wireless, they are able to be competitive in multiple markets. This all started from the creation of a 2005 Texan law which deregulated energy to a varying extent. Capitalizing on this move, founder Rob Snyder brought Stream into markets across many states including Illinois, Georgia, and Northeastern states; The expansion all happened between 2008 and 2010.
Since that time, Hurricane Harvey has devastated many parts of the great city of Dallas where Stream Energy is headquartered. In response to this, Stream Energy has created a new spin-off company titled Stream Cares. Stream Cares is the newly-founded philanthropic endeavor which has been aimed at combating the astronomically high homeless rate in Dallas of 24%. The way in which Stream Cares has been engaging with the homeless has been largely through taking care of homeless children in the city; the way in which they have carried this out is through helping homeless children have a fun day at the Hawaiian Falls Water Park! At the waterpark, they are given a great lunch picnic, a hat, a pair of sandals, and more than anything a smile. They have done all this in conjunction with Hope Supply Company, which was founded in 1989 and has been doing amazing work ever since their founding.
Hurricane Harvey was extremely damaging in more ways than just structural: Although it’s true that the hurricane caused millions upon millions of dollars in damage to city structures and homes, the emotional toll that this has taken on the city has been very large and Stream Energy has done something about it.

Adam Milstein is a Jewish businessman and writer, and he keeps on updating his website dedicated to the Jewish People. One of the most recent articles that he has written for the website was about the global alliance against the Jewish people and the State of Israel. He discussed in his articles how the radical organizations are grouping to attack them. The radical left, the radical right, and the radical Muslims are all displaying hatred towards the Jewish People, and according to Adam Milstein, the attacks against his people keep on increasing each year, and he wanted to put an end to it. The Anti-Semitic sentiment is very strong, and he does not have any idea why the people are being persecuted for the actions of his government.
Adam Milstein added that the unholy alliance between the radical Muslim groups and the radical left are growing strongly, especially in Europe and North America. It is a common practice for radical Muslims to persecute homosexuals and dismiss the rights of women and the minorities, which should sound unappealing to the radical left, but lo and behold, they decided to join alliances just to attack the Jewish people. Adam Milstein theorized that the alliance between the radical Muslims and the radical left exists because the far left thought of the Muslims as a single body, which is not the case. There are different groups of Muslims around the world, and for the radical left, they looked at them as a single body oppressed by the West. These groups are becoming a huge threat towards the people of Israel, and the government must do something to protect everyone from their growing influence.
For the far left groups, Israel is a white-supremacist oppressor who has targeted Muslims for years, and some groups are blaming the country for all of the problems in the Middle East. Radical Muslims have also joined the fight against Israel, and they are conducting several marches and political rallies condemning the Jewish State. Adam Milstein is calling upon the alliances of Israel, and he is pleading that they also move to stop these groups from spreading their false beliefs.
