Oprah's Angel Network

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
(Redirected from The Angel Network)

Oprah's Angel Network was a charity organized in 1998 and involved in various projects such as education supplies, school construction, disaster relief, and other areas.[1]

In May 2010, with Oprah's show ending, the charity stopped accepting donations and was shut down.[2][3]

Hurricane Katrina[edit]

In the wake of Hurricane Katrina, Oprah created the Oprah Angel Network Katrina registry which raised more than $11 million for relief efforts. Winfrey personally gave $10 million to the cause.[4] Homes were built in Texas, Mississippi, Louisiana, and Alabama before the one-year anniversary of Hurricanes Katrina and Rita.[5]
