Oprah's Favorite Giveaway Ever
Oprah announced her all-time favorite giveaway during a 2006 show on giving back. At the end of that show, each member of the audience was sent home with $1,000, a hand-held camera and a challenge. Oprah asked each of them to "pay it forward" by using that $1,000 to come up with inspiring and creative ways to help others, and to videotape their progress. See the results!
