In 1994, a little girl named Nora appeared on The Oprah Show with her father, Ted, to talk about her Penny Harvest project. She and other children collected pennies, which added up to $1,000 to help different organizations. "I started thinking, 'If you could do that, I wonder what I could do?'" Oprah says. That question brought about an organization that would change lives around the world.
On the September 18, 1997, episode of The Oprah Winfrey Show, Oprah invited viewers to join her in using their lives to improve the lives of others with her new organization...and so Oprah's Angel Network was launched!
