In this day and age, everybody knows Oprah Winfrey. She is an amazing woman. She is one of the greatest achievers of our times allowing nothing – not her beginnings, not the color of her skin, not her size, not her sex and no circumstance beyond her control – to stop her from getting to where she wanted to be. She is a phenomenal woman. She is articulate, eloquent, sharp, kind, compassionate and a warrior. She inspires people just by being who she is.
That same thought is the mission of Oprah’s Angel Network. Oprah believes that anyone can inspire others. We can all make a difference each in our own way. We just need to take our energy and find a passion in helping others by doing what we all do best.
The Angel Network aims to get everyone to make a difference by inspiring others. They work with various organizations such as Habitats for Humanity and they operative various projects in communities that are under-served that provide initiatives in education, help people meet their basic human needs and to help them regain their dignity.
How does the Angel Network help? The easiest answer is with money. Every amount donated to the network is much appreciated. No amount is too small especially when it comes from the heart. We all know that can be the difference to some of eating this day or not.
Here is the more difficult yet more rewarding answer of the network. Find out who needs your help in your area. Then find a way to meet their need. Quite a number of times it isn’t about the money. It may need your skill as an educator, as a person who can sew or maybe as a chef. There are infinite ways! You can make a difference just by doing what you do best.
