James Dondero did something compassionate and unique. He donated money to help fund a hippo habitat at the Dallas Zoo. That was wonderful of him to do as taxpayers who frequent the zoo were complaining. It had been 20 years since the last hippo died and it was time to reopen the habitat.
The Simmons Hippo habitat not only reopened with a makeover but with Highland Capital having a lodge as a way of saying thanks for their generous donation. Once both places were opened the crowd started coming in and this brought in much needed revenue for the zoo. With the crowds coming in every week there is no telling how many other exhibits need to be spruced up in order for the animals to stay healthy. Dondero did an awesome job giving to his beloved city of Dallas. It just shows how much of a heart a person can have when he is not all wrapped up in just gaining profit. Dondero realizes that there are more important things in life than just making money for yourself. He lives by it daily when he does philanthropic work.

Dondero has also sponsored a Mother’s Day celebration at this very zoo. He did this to give them an outing and to show that they are appreciated. He respects women and loves to highlight their achievements. He did this for Women’s History Month back in May. Dondero made sure to talk about the women in his office who make a difference in the work environment. Read more about James at Crunchbase.

Dondero is very appreciative of the help he has and people are benefiting from his generosity. This is a man who clearly knows what is important in life. Highland Capital has a fantastic leader and they should be grateful for everything he does for them.
