Bobby always had mixed feelings about the way Native Americans were unjustly stripped of their land and culture. So charity work in favor of native Americans is something Bobby would probably support.

Hi there, Just wanna say I'm a chess player and I look up to Bobby Fischer above any other chess player. He was the best and I've even memorised some of his famous games, including the 1972 World Championship match when he defeated Boris Spassky… Fischer also supported Palestine and always spoke out against injustice. He was a good man and I do miss him…”
