Oprah Gives More Than Cars This Time

Oprah In her usual deep pocket style, Oprah Winfrey has decided to start another show, to be aired on ABC and titled “Oprah Winfrey's The Big Give” where 10 people will have to spend Oprah’s money to come up with "the most powerful, sensational, emotional and dramatic ways to give to others," according to the News Observer.

You might remember the episode a few years ago when Oprah and General Motors gave away 276 Pontiac G6s to an audience of people who all had car-related troubles. The show will be set up similar to Trump’s “The Apprentice” except instead of creating the best new pizza flavor and developing the marketing strategy behind it, contestants will focus making a difference in people’s lives.

Oprah_g6 What would you do if you were given a wad of Oprah’s cash and told to make a difference in someone’s lives? In keeping with the Ask Patty (automotive) theme, I would start a fund for people with disabilities to install adaptive equipment in their vehicles, whether it is a fully mounted and moveable wheelchair, or a simple adjustment to a seat to allow more comfort for the person with the disability.

So what would you do? Would you give cars to the needy? Would you make sure every family had a properly installed car seat? Leave a comment for us and let us know!
