Oprah’s Trash Yields Great Treasures.

My lil sis has been urging me to host a yard sale to boost my holiday bank. I am seriously considering. However, I can’t help but wonder,  would anyone be crazy enough to buy my old stuff? Perhaps I should read Oprah’s playbook on the very subject before I begin.

You see, the media mogul reportedly raised a whopping $600,000 for charity by holding multiple ‘yard sales’ last weekend.  Oprah hawked furniture, personalized presents, painting and antiques from her houses in Hawaii, Chicago and Indiana to be auctioned off for a good cause.

She took to her twitter to encourage her followers to get involved and posted the cute pic below to accompany the ‘ask’:

The money raised will go to the Oprah Winfrey Leadership Academy for Girls in South Africa. The charity aims to help young women to improve their education and their social opportunities.
