Milton Hershey is well known today for his Hershey’s chocolate. This is not surprising; you can find Hershey’s chocolate in nearly every American food store, movie theatre, amusement park, and many other locations. Not only is it well known in the United States of America, it is also well known in many foreign countries. Moreover, many have written extensively about Hershey’s chocolate likening Milton Hershey to royalty, such as an Emperor or King of chocolate. This is a remarkable accomplishment. However, this is not Milton Hershey’s greatest accomplishment; he would probably be amused that people today remember him primarily for his commercial product – Hershey’s chocolate. He would likely view the success of his chocolate as merely the result of the consistent use of a formula, together with well thought-out production, distribution, sales and other business methods suitable to today’s commercial market. In the end, this success has resulted from the consistent use of the product’s formula. The far more remarkable achievement of Milton and Catherine Hershey was The Hershey Industrial School. The Hershey Chocolate Corporation was just one part of this philanthropically driven achievement. Not only did The Hershey Industrial School benefit all who were a part of it, it existed to and did save poor orphans from the many adversities they were otherwise at risk of experiencing. Each child’s success demands its own formula unique to such child. Milton S. Hershey – His Deeds are His Monument, His Life is Our Inspiration is about Milton and Catherine Hershey’s intelligent philanthropy. Their philanthropy saves American children who, through no fault of their own, are at risk of failing to reach their potential or worse, suffering a range of undesirable outcomes. In 2003, children living in poverty in America increased to 12,900,000. Poor orphan children who experience the love, family, development and opportunities of The Hershey Industrial School leave with higher intelligence, greatly improved behavior and emotional health, preparation for work, character, an excellent work ethic, and more. If children are important to you, you will want to read this book.
