If you have ever watched the Oprah Winfrey show, then you know that Oprah is one of the most generous people around and you may even know about her Angel Network and more.
Oprah Winfrey is the most well-known Black philanthropist. It has been estimated that Oprah Winfrey has donated more than 300 Million dollars with her Charitable foundations. They include: Oprah Winfrey’s Angel Network, the Oprah Winfrey Foundation and the Oprah Winfrey Leadership Academy Foundation. The Atlanta post said Oprah Winfrey has raised more than 80 million dollars for charitable projects and grants globally. What an outstanding and loving woman to do so much for those in need. It just makes your heart feel good.
Oprah used her talk show to assist in publicizing The Angel Network. Oprah said that 100% or any donation give goes directly to funding a project. An example is the Oprah Winfrey Leadership Academy for Girls in South Africa and Rebuilding the Gulf Coast. Oprah does even more than these charities. Oprah volunteers her time with other charities as well as giving to her past audience members.
Oprah donates to Project Cuddle. This organization rescues hundreds of baby’s from abuse and abandonment yearly. Oprah is also one of the largest contributors to Free the Children. This organization’s purpose is to build schools for children in developing countries. The giving philanthropist, Oprah Winfrey has even auctioned of her cars for charity. Earlier in the year, Oprah auctioned off 250 of her items from her closet for charity on EBay. Items included, Oprah’s Chanel, the Badgley Mischka dress she wore on the cover of O, The Oprah Magazine, gold Manolo Blahnik pumps and a flirty pink Oscar de la Renta skirt, a Prada Purse and more.
Oprah even has a will that will donate one billion dollars to charity. I am in awe of Oprah Winfrey and her accomplishments. She has the drive and determination of a thousand women. Oprah’s Angel Network is a great name as Oprah is certainly an Angel to so many. I have to say thank you Oprah for being such an incredible giving and loving individual.
