Watch the Men of Morehouse pay tribute to Oprah in the touching video below:
The set down went out to almost 13,000,000 million followers and has already gone viral.
With a fortune exceeding well over $2.3 billion, Oprah is known for charitable contributions through Oprah’s Angel Network, the Oprah Winfrey Foundation and the Oprah Winfrey Leadership Academy Foundation. It is estimated that her giving exceeds $300 million. In 2007, she opened the Oprah Winfrey Leadership Academy for Girls, a free residential school for girls in South Africa, and in December 2009, she donated $1.5 million to Ron Clark Academy, a private middle school in inner-city Atlanta. Winfrey is also Morehouse College’s largest contributor, with $12 million given to the HBCU. The men she put through college have also pledged to “pay it forward” and keep the scholarships rolling for future generations.
