In 2003, Oprah became the first African-American woman to be inducted into the billionaire club.
Oprah’s compassion has grown with her wealth and influence. In 2000, Oprah’s Angel Network began giving the $100,000 “Use Your Life Award” to people who helped improve the lives of others. According to the Chicago Sun-Times, Oprah has donated more than $50 million to charity, including local organizations such as the AIDS Foundation of Chicago, Children’s Memorial Hospital and the Chicago Academy of the Arts.
The Oprah Winfrey Foundation was established to support the inspiration, empowerment, education and well-being of women, children and families around the world. Oprah has contributed millions of dollars towards providing a better education for underprivileged children.
Oprah has also created the Oprah Winfrey Leadership Academy for Girls in South Africa which will teach girls to be the best human beings they can be.
