On May 15, 2004, 11-year-old honor student Hallie Geier got ready to take her dog for an afternoon walk. Just as she stepped into the street in front of her house, she was hit and killed by a car.
Hallie's parents, Ted and Sofia, say their daughter was a compassionate soul who wanted to help other children. During the last year of her life she had been saving her lunch money to help children affected by AIDS in sub-Saharan Africa. With Hallie's savings, along with contributions to the Love, Hallie Foundation, Ted and Sofia donated $10,000 to Oprah's Angel Network
Oprah told the Geier family she would personally see that Hallie's money would be put to good use. Now, she gets to make good on her promise!
