Oprah Winfrey raises $600,000

oprah_winfrey_683395 Hosting a yard sale on Saturday, Oprah Winfrey managed to raise $600,000 for charity.

Live auction was held at the Santa Barbara Polo & Racquet Club and Oprah sold lots of her personal belongings. The money went to the Oprah Winfrey Leadership Academy Foundation College Fund.

”It’s just too much stuff. I talk about it a lot in the magazine. We talk about decluttering. And I realized, I need to declutter my own life. It is very freeing. I am downsizing. I’m trying not to be attached to things. I’m trying to live the life that I talk about, like not letting things define you. But it’s hard,” Oprah said.

    I admire Oprah! And yes, it is easier to say than to do, but I am happy that she is not only “bla-bla-bla kind”, but also follows her own pieces of advice, though it can be hard. Yes, we get attached to things, though nothing truly belongs to us in this world, we even do not know how many breaths there are left for us since life is a gift, so treasure very moment, people and enjoy life!
