This is me at my “Toll Bridge” fundraising for Free The Children Charity

 

Oprah’s Angel Network

There is this one corporate partner that stood out to me the most out of the other 59 outstanding corporate partners that are involved in the “Free The Children” Charity. This one is called “Oprah’s Angel Network”. This is how the charity all began, It all started in 1997 on the “Oprah Winfrey Show”. Oprah invited her viewers to join her help others in need in this world. It all started off as a campaign, for anyone just to spare any change they had. And then later on it formed into a charity, called “Oprah’s Angel Network”. The charity became very successful with the help from people all over the world. I can relate to this charity so much because they do what was similar to what I have done to raise money for the “Free The Children” Charity, I had collected change from everyone who drove by this certain area in my community where people can donate there spare change if they wanted to contribute to the charity, we call it a toll bridge. We collected any spare change from several vehicles that drove by and we raised 740.91$. I was so happy to see how much people actually cared in my own little community, and to see what “Oprah’s Angel Network” does what similar to what I did, but with help with generous people throughout the world was just amazing to see.

This is the charity has accomplished; with “Free The Children” Charity they have built 55 schools in 12 countries. Provided more than $1 million worth of school supplies, including school uniforms and shoes, to 18,000 needy South African children. Helped more than 1,000 families get back into their homes and helped build or restore more than 400 homes in eight communities across Texas, Mississippi, Louisiana and Alabama. Regarding the hurricane “Katrina and Rita”. The network built “The Seven Fountains Primary School” in KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa. The school has more than 1,000 boys and girls. A joint project of Oprah’s Angel Network called “O ambassadors” and Free The Children, inspired young people in the United States and Canada to become responsible global citizens. Oprah’s Angel Network introduced the “Use Your Life Award” on “The Oprah Winfrey Show” in 2000. From 2000 to 2003, there were more then 50 organizations that were making a difference in there own ways. Inspired by “O, The Oprah Magazine’s” “Rescuing the World’s Girls” and “Live Your Best Life Tour” events, the Angel Network gave grants to organizations that provide life-changing assistance for women and girls.

All of what “Oprah’s Angel Network” and “Free The Children” has done has been inspiring too me. It is such an awesome network because it tributes to almost anything that needs help the most. It isn’t just one particular thing that they contribute to; it is what needs to be most focused and cared for.  When it comes to education, and too being an ambassador for youth throughout the world. Everything about this Charity is just amazing.

Oprah’s Angel Network and Free The Children Charity has been working together for six years now, and plan on continuing doing what there doing. Thanks to Oprah’s Angel Network and Free The Children’s successful implementation, the “O ambassadors” program will fully transition to Free The Children.
