London, Jan 03 (ANI): Media mogul Oprah Winfrey donated 243,000 pounds to a school for low-income kids in Atlanta.

Winfrey, who is known for her charitable work, donated the money in a bid to make certain that the The Ron Clark Academy has sufficient funding to continue providing education to 80 low-income group students.

The Principal of the Ron Clark academy, who set up the school from royalties from his best-selling book The Essential 55, is dependent on donations to keep the academy open.

However, he was dazed to receive such a great amount from Winfrey, who appreciated Clark for the “profound difference you”re making with your passion for teaching.”

“We teach school all day and fundraise at night. To have an unsolicited gift come like that is incredible, The Daily Express quoted Clark, as saying.

In a letter sent with the cheque, Winfrey praised Clark for the “profound difference you”re making with your passion for teaching.” (ANI)
