Saintly Oprah Hands Over $6 Million To Schools!

| Filed under: InspirationOprah Winfrey


She makes the most money, but she also gives the most away!

In what will be added to her laundry list of generous deeds, Oprah Winfrey has pledged to donate over $6 million to groups that help out trouble schools in Philadelphia, California, Colorado, Illinois, Louisiana and Texas. Six schools were selected based on their commitment to boost the "quality of public education."

We're sure a million bucks will do a bunch to boost morale!

    angelina should learn from that instead of keeping adopting a bunch of kids that she prolly doesn't even remember all names and instead of just "raise awareness"

  2. 2

    I'll bet Oprah 6 million that these schools all house BLACK KIDS just like her school in Africa.

    Isn't it nice when a rich black woman does things for black people yet no one calls her racist, but if a white person does it……watch out!!!

    Just like that black woman in Texas that was giving all the scholarship money to her black relatives instead of other kids that were applying for the scholarships. one girl even had to drop out of college because there was no more scholarship money left because all the relatives had 4 year scholarships

    Oprah should buy that dress in every colour. She looks fab!

    that' s great — but I doubt she gives "the most" like you say. Look at percentage of income given, that's how to guage generousity. I think the cleaning lady who donated her entire life's savings to underpriveleged kids' education probably "gives the most". But it's all good… (Don't forget celebs get publicity and tax write-offs!)

    Are you sure it the money didn't come from HER sponsors? I heard evrything she gives away comes from HER sponsors.

    Let's be clear.. OPRAH didn't hand over her money.. it was from the Angel Network which the money is donations from VIEWERS…. My friend works at one of the 6 schools.. they really did need the money. The school is amazing.

    Well that's nice of her.

    @URwhatUeat…if you watched the show you would have seen that the money went to charter schools that all sever an ARRAY of populations.

  9. 9

    Anyone with large amounts of money like Oprah has an obligation to help the less fortunate and build a better society. She should do all of her "donating" privately and with anonymity. "Saintly" no, "media whore" yes.

    It wasn't her money but that of her foundation, The Angel Network, that gave the money to the schools. The money was donated by viewers. So although Oprah might have given out the checks the money came didn't come from her.

    Re: Emily Horrworth – you don't live in Texas do you???

    There aren't schools out here in the poor neighborhoods that have an array of kids…..check your facts…dallas doesn't have one of the highest crime rates for no reason.

    I like oprah she seems lovely. If i was rich like her all i'll eat would be berries and salmon and all those expensive healthy stuff

  13. 13

    "Saintly" Oprah?! Are you serious? Six million to her is like $50 to the rest of us. Isn't she clever…and CAN SHE GET MORE UNATTRACTIVE? Something horrible has happened to her face lately! Does she cry a lot?

  14. 14

    That's great to hear…some good karma right there for oprah. Schools/education need all the help they can get rt now.

    Re: kiakiss – No she isn't obligated to give away a penny. You're a miserable moron who never says anything nice about anybody.
    Oprah is famous so whatever she does is bound to appear in the newspapers, that doesn't mean that she does it to get publicity.
    Famous people need to speak publicly for their donations to raise awareness for a particular cause, so before Oprah donating money to that school you knew nothing about it.
    Fuck off.

    If each million dollars were in a stack, Oprah just gave away 6 stacks of a million dollars each.

    The Bill and Melinda Gates foundation has given away 18 thousand stacks of 1 million dollars each. They direct most of their money to developing countries.

    Just sayin' ………

    I'm sure this is just the tip of the iceberg as far as charitable donations from Oprah. She has no heirs. Who else is she going to give her money to when she dies? It will no doubt just about all go to charity. Foundations will be set up that will dole out money annually. Don't be dissin' on Oprah. You don't know the facts…..obviously.

    Thats what she makes a day on interest ..and its good for Tax reasons because half of it flows right back into her account

  19. 19

    6 Million? That's it? She gets a huge tax write off, why are people fond of this broad? She makes more money by giving some of it away. Idiots.

  20. 20

    Oprah herself did not give 6 million. it was the ANGEL NETWORK. donations from viewers!

  21. 21

    She gave a million dollars to my school about 2 years ago because we do charities that go to Africa nonstop and fundraising all the time :)

    My sister teaches at the charter school in Texas Oprah gave $ to!!!
