Inspiration, Money, and Charity

It is no coincidence that some of the highest paid people in the world are in the business of inspiring others, namely film stars, performers, musicians, and singers. For instance the inspirational Oprah Winfrey is not only a multi-million dollar brand, she is someone that has genuinely touched the hearts of millions for nearly two decades.
She is less known for her work through her private charity, The Oprah Winfrey Foundation. Here she has helped to empower women, children and families in the United States and around the world. Her charity has directed millions of dollars toward providing a better education for students who have merit but little means. She also has developed schools to educate thousands of children internationally. Her public charity Oprah's Angel Network has raised millions for non-profit organizations across the globe. As you can see not only is inspiration is big business, but it can also have a heart.
