According to Miamigov.com, “In 2012, Miami was classified as an 'Alpha−' level world city in the World Cities Study Group's inventory. In 2010, Miami ranked seventh in the United States and 33rd among global cities in terms of business activity, human capital, information exchange, cultural experience, and political engagement. According to a 2009 UBS study of 73 world cities, Miami was ranked as the richest city in the United States, and the world's seventh-richest city in terms of purchasing power."
Metropolitan Miami is also a major tourism hub in the southeastern U.S. for international visitors, ranking number two in the country after New York City. However, Miami does experience the problem of homelessness. According to Miamigov.com, 31 percent of the total unsheltered population, 17 percent of the total sheltered population, and a total of 25 percent of the total homeless population of Miami-Dade County are experiencing chronic homelessness. Many of these people are fathers. Imagine how heartbreaking for a father to be homeless and could not provide for their family? Dr. Farshhcian met with the many fathers at the Miami Rescue Mission to cheer them up and give a helping hand. Father’s day at The Miami Rescue Mission was a fun movie night thanks to all the organizers participating, including Dr. Farshchian.
In the summer of 2017, inspired by Michael Jackson's Philanthropic work with Heal the World charity organization; Farshchian created a similar concept called "Heal the Earth through the Arts". This charity holds telethons live on Facebook; the telethons help to raise money for the homeless in Miami. Dr. Farshchian has stated in several interviews that this is his way of giving back to his community and continuing Michael Jackson's legacy Since 2017, Heal the Earth through the Arts, Inc. was formed to stimulate, promote and develop the interest of the general public in the arts, specifically by bringing the arts to areas and population centers that are not adequately served. It will also be a platform for up and coming artists to showcase their “arts” and help fundraise awareness about the environment, the Arts, and the Earth. Funds raised will then be awarded to chosen charities like The Miami Rescue Mission for the Homeless, among others.We are very proud to be contributing to our community through Miami Mission rescue and showing the homeless fathers out there that there is hope and we care!
