Oprah Winfrey is giving back and in a big way!
The media mogul has pledged $2 million to help revive Puerto Rico’s arts and cultural programs, after Hurricane Maria destroyed it in 2017. According to reports, Oprah will split the money between two programs.
She made a $1 million donation to the Hispanic Federation’s UNIDOS Disaster Relief & Recovery Program. The other $1 million will go to The Flamboyan Arts Fund, which was created by Broadway superstar Lin-Manuel Miranda.
Auntie O said in a statement that she felt moved by Miranda and his actions to ensure Puerto Rico has a sustainable and vibrant arts culture.
“I was so moved by Lin-Manuel Miranda’s commitment to bring HAMILTON to Puerto Rico and support the community that served him growing up that I wanted to join in the revitalization efforts of an island so rich in culture, beauty and heritage,” she said.
