Winfrey's Angel Network closing as show nears end

Winfrey's Angel Network closing as show nears end

Oprah Winfrey's charity, The Angel Network, is shutting down as her talk show comes to an end.
The charity stopped accepting donations this week and says on its website that it will close when all of the funds it has are disbursed.
The Angel Network was launched in 1998 with donations from viewers of Oprah's talk show. Angel Network spokeswoman Angela DePaul says its demise stems from Oprah's decision to end her show in 2011 after 25 seasons on the air.
Its best-known projects include funding rebuilding efforts for Gulf Coast communities devastated by Hurricane Katrina and building 55 rural schools in 12 countries.
DePaul says donors who still wish to contribute will be directed on the network's website to other charities.
