Oprah Winfrey has famously given members of her audience new cars, paid off their debts and fulfilled their wildest dreams. Now she’s given them what she calls the “gift of giving back.”
On a show that aired Monday, Winfrey gave more than 300 audience members $1,000 debit cards sponsored by the Bank of America to donate to a charitable cause.
People can give the entire sum to one person -- relatives aren’t eligible -- or they can split it among charitable causes. Audience members also received a DVD recorder to tape their stories for a future show.
