Even though Oprah crushed all of our dreams in hopes that she would run for President in 2020, it seems as if the media mogul will continue to influence others in a different light.
Just yesterday, Oprah announced that she is donating a whopping $500,000 to the March for Our Lives.
The event will be held on March 24th, 2018. It was created in order to put an end to gun violence after 19-year-old, Nikolas Cruz killed 17 students and faculty at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida on Valentine’s Day.
George and Amal Clooney as well as many other celebrities have also made a donation.
George and Amal, I couldn’t agree with you more. I am joining forces with you and will match your $500,000 donation to ‘March For Our Lives.’ These inspiring young people remind me of the Freedom Riders of the 60s who also said we’ve had ENOUGH and our voices will be heard.
