    Oprah Winfrey Shutters Angel Network Charity - Charity will end when her show does

    Our friends at The Huffington Post have revealed that Oprah Winfrey will shutter her charity, The Angel Network, as she also ends her long running daytime talk show.

    The charity began in 1998, collecting donations from her talk show viewers. But with her eponymous, iconic program being put to bed in 2011, the charity will cease as well, a spokeswoman for the charity said. The charity has stopped taking donations as of this week and it will dissolve as soon as the remaining funds are distributed. In the past 12 years, 150,000 donors have given $80 million to the network. R.I.P., Angel Network. You done good.

    What is your favorite charity?
