On December 26, 2004, a deadly East Asian tsunami killed an estimated 181,000 people. Our hopes and prayers went out to the millions of families touched by the tsunami. "It is the outpouring of intense compassion, the yearning to help strangers across the globe that is truly, I believe, more powerful than any tsunami," Oprah said. "Together, if we choose to be, we all can be the ultimate force of nature."
Millions of you wanted to help. So Oprah's Angel Network teamed up with three worldwide relief and development organizations that will be working in the area of Arugam Bay and the town of Pottuvil, Sri Lanka and donated $1 million to help their efforts.
