My Email Letter to Oprah Winfrey...and Her REPLY!
oprahbanner.jpg

    
     Many celebrities have achieved the fame that Oprah Winfrey has, and few have had as many fans as she has.
    
     Earlier today, I sent Oprah Winfrey an email, since she gave our her Email address during her last show, and I got a reply back just now! It was a form letter I received back from her, but still OPRAH WINFREY SENT ME AN EMAIL! You have no idea how happy that makes this little fan. Oprah sure knows how to excite her fans, me included!

     Oprah, despite her flaws, inspires us on a daily basis and I will continue to support, and criticize, one of the most brilliant women in the world...

My Letter:

Greetings, Ms. Winfrey!

     I had to write to you today, because
for my entire short life (19 years, almost 20) I have dreamed of
talking with you, if only for a short few moments.
    
     For
my entire life, you have been a constant source of inspiration for me.
Your whole life reads like an inspirational novel, forcing those of us
who read it to look at our lives and learn from every single thing, good
or bad, that happens in our either exciting or drab lives. You have
been through so much and the fact that you are, quoting Stephen Sondheim
"through good times and bum times", still here is a constant source of
inspiration for not only me, but millions of other friends,
nay...extended Oprah family
members!
     My life hasn't been perfect, but thanks to you, I have
learned to enjoy every minute of it, no matter what has happened that
might dissuade me from having a positive attitude.
I have learned to walk through my days with a smile on my face and a
cheer in my step, despite every little negative thing that may happen.

     
I am a journalist, I have a little blog online, AND I'm in college,
training to be an Opera Singer/Actor. I just appeared in a production of
Woody Allen's Don't Drink the Water.
I just hoped you would be proud that I trudged through many a bad
audition and continued to audition despite my negative thoughts, thanks
to all the things I have learned from you over the years.

     I
will end this letter with the pledge that I will never stop watching,
reading and taking in every thing that you do, because I
find that I really connect with the true Steven when I do. I will wait
every month for my O: The Oprah Magazine to come in the mail and I will
watch OWN with the fevered glee of a small child unwrapping a present at
Christmas.

    
I hope all is well in your world and that you are staying positive,
despite the major changes that are taking part in your life. You will
continue to do great things, Ms. Winfrey, and I will be there with you
every step of the way!

Keep on Smiling!

Steven Krage

Oprah's Reply:

Got your email.
Thank you for watching the finale. I could feel your beating hearts, along with mine, through the TV screen.
I'm off to take a little rest, and then I'll get busy working on OWN. 

Take care of yourself.

I'll write soon,

Oprah

  • Great minds think alike. I sent an email to her as well on the day of her finale, asking her to consider doing a segment on OWN regarding celiac disease. I write the blog "Gladly Gluten Free" here on ChicagoNOW about celiac and all things gluten free. As you so eloquently put in your letter to her, she has inspired many and can inform many through her network. Be on the lookout for another email from her in the next few days, titled "Hello from vacation". Who cares if it is a form letter. It's exciting to see Oprah Winfrey in your inbox :)

  • She is a smart woman. Keeping her viewers and moving them to the new network with her.

  • Oprah sure knows how to connect, even the auto-replies sound like she's talking just to you.

  • clearly autoreply. but at least she's trying to make people feel wanted!

    I feel so out of it while I read the articles in Oprah Magazine. I can't afford what is advertised. My goodness I truly feel like a failure sometimes. I subscribe to the mag for the knowledge that is shared. Deepak is by far the most meaningful article I have read by far. He gives me hope, hope for some one who is doing the best she can. Why is there so much emphasis on things? We are living within our means and yet we struggle. I am in love with everything about Oprah. Thank younOprah for giving me hope. You are my hero.

  • HI oprah I herd that one of your gards called my dad and said if one of your girls send a messge to oprah im tellin you when i herd this i was yelling so much because you are my idle and i hope ypu can make my dream come true.

    Dear Oprah,
    Have always wanted to email you because I see you as a very compassionate person but always said I dont matter. I am a mother of five children living in a motel in boise idaho. I pray everyday for my family. We do not qualify for anything as far as housing. I am very discouraged yet my kids are my life. They are bright and loving children.As I sit here I know I am no law maker, entertainer or someone of any importance. Yet as I sit here I realize that it is almost Thanksgiving and I am very greatful for my kids. Their father recently went to jail, so yet agian we are desolate and have no home. I am an optimistic person. I am a fighter and will do whatever I have to for my family. Getting a job in this economy is very hard. I had to drop my classes till january 2013. I know your shows are about hope. Nickole, my oldest is so beautiful she is my right hand shes 15, my son James, 14 is such a sweet kid, David, 13 is so helpful and caring. Jordan, 10 is a beatiful girl that is the most loving affectionate kid, and of course my baby boy Patrick, hes my 9 year old mommas boy. They are my strength, life. I take every breath with them. They give me hope every day. My options are nill. My credit is horrible so a rent to own is even difficult. Yet where we stay is also volitile to the development of my kids. I need help. I pray that someone can help us, we work together as a family to make things better! Thanksgiving and Christmas are very dim but I know god is watching over us and has managed to keep a roof over our head. I am a very hard worker, and I absolutely love my family. Can you help?

    Dear Oprah,

    During the year of 1995 my mother's life took an unexpected turn in regards with her health. This was immediately after she had given birth to myself, she was diagnosed with focal segmental glomerulonephritis, a severe kidney disease. My name is Jakia Hill and my family and I are on mission to save my mother's life, here is the story of my mother's 17 year fight with this kidney disease.
    In the year of 2000 my mother received a kidney transplant which was a blessing to my brothers and I. We had the best mother we could ever imagine and now she was in perfect health condition. Our mother managed an in home day-care center and eventually became a hairstylist while she was healthy. Everything was going extremely well until the year of 2006. I started to notice my mother not feeling well, I remember seeing her search for medicine that was mandatory for her to survive. Just six years after her transplant, my mother could no longer afford the medications she needed to survive which led her body into rejection of her transplanted kidney. I recall the numerous hospital stays and the days where my mother just wasn't herself.
    Unfortunately in the year of 2009, my mother was put on dialysis for the second time. This was devastating to us as a family but this is where our journey began once again for a kidney donor. Throughout my life I have watched my mother fight this disease day in and day out. I cant even begin to explain the exceptional mother she has been to my brothers and I, we wouldn't know to do if we lost her which is why we are reaching out to you.
    Doctors have made it very clear that a second transplant is essential in order to save my mother's life. Since this is my mother's second transplant the possibility of her finding a donor are not so high. As a family we looked into other options and were blessed to find an incompatible program at John Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore, MD. This program will make it eligible for any person to become a donor regardless of their blood type and the surgery will detox the antibodies in her body to prevent another rejection. My oldest brother as well as my grandfather have been tested however, they are ineligible to be donors due to health issues.This is just one aspect of our kidney journey however,there is another part as well.
    The average kidney transplant costs about $250,000, however this is just the beginning. Even with health coverage my mother still faces extraordinary medical expenses. For the rest of my mother's life she will need follow-up care and daily anti-rejection medications. Post-transplant medications are expensive however they are crucial to our mother's survival as the actual transplant itself.
    Approaching the transplant, my mother would have to relocate 100 miles from her home to be near to transplant center for at least six weeks during recovery, incurring substantial expenses for travel, food, and lodging.The financial needs that come along with saving my mother's life are abundant which I why we have began raising money for her transplant. We have partnered with the National Foundation for Transplants (a non-profit organization) in an effort to assist us in raising money for our mother's transplant. Regardless of the cost of saving our mother's life, we will continue to fight for it because the price of our mother's life is priceless.
    If in any way you guys could assist us fight this journey, it would be greatly appreciated. We have events such as donation tables at Walmart, Raffle tickets, and more. Our next event coming up will be held at Applebee's on March 2, 2013 during breakfast hours from 8 a.m til 10 a.m. The tickets are $8, if you would like to come and support please call Crystal at 856.520.7349. If you would just like to make a donation you can do so at:

  • Dear Dearest Oprah, 3/13/2013

    My name is Lasonia Newton. I am a 41 year old wife and mom. I love you and have always been a huge fan of yours. I admire the way you are a loving caring person and are always helping less fortunate people in desperate situations. All my life I have wanted to be able to help people and did it whenever I could. Unfortunately, now it is my time to ask for help. That is why I am writing you...My husband is VERY sick. Without your help I may lose him. Here is our story...

    My husband, David, and I were high school sweethearts. We were each others' first and only true loves. We were married right out of high school in the summer of 1990. David worked as an auto mechanic in a small garage and I was a stay at home wife. We were only married a few short months before David fell very ill. He woke up with severe fatigue and juandice one morning and I rushed him to the local ER. They said they thought it was just simple hepatitis. They sent him home on bed rest and he seemed to get better within a few days. So back to work he went. But his juandice lingered on... Being low income we had no health insurance, so we didn't follow up with a doctor.

    A few months later I found out I was pregnant. This was NOT planned. I gave birth at 33.5 weeks to a beautiful premature son. I named him Kyle. He stayed in the NICU for a week before he came home. He was deemed to be healthy. As he matured we began to see developmental and mental problems in him. Therefore, I decided to continue to be a stay at home wife/mom to take care of his needs. He is now 21 years old and still has problems. Therefore he hasn't been able to work. Unfortunately, we have been denied disability two times on him already.

    In 1994, David became very ill again. This time we finally found out what it was he truly had. It is a rare liver disease he was born with that had lain dormant until he was 20 years old. It is called Primary Sclerosing Cholangitis (PSC). He also has a bowel disease called Ulcerative Colitis (UC). The only possible cures for these diseases are a liver tansplant for the PSC and a colectomy (colon removal) for the UC. In 1998, David had a liver transplant for the PSC and his UC went into remission. He did really good and went back to work a month later. He got a better paying job so he was finally able to get health insurance. We thought he was healthy and all would be good now. Turns out, we were very wrong...

    Well, in 2004, the PSC came back in his new liver and his UC flared again. His health has went downhill ever since. The first time he was sick, he worked as much as he could up until his transplant but this time he had to go out on disability right away. It took over 2 years for him to get his disability check started. The check is very small compared to what we were used to when he had to quit working. The three of us are living on only $1389.00 a month. We could make it on that amount but...
    .
    Over the years we had to rely heavily on credit cards due to David's poor health and his inability to work steadily. Many times we fell short when David was too sick to work and had to use them for food or utility bills. Plus having no health insurance caused us to pile up big medical bills. Over the years we have been forced to put some of his medical bills on credit cards. Now the expenses are overwhelming us. Lately we have spent a lot more time in the hospital. He is having many complications and they are starting to prepare him to be re-listed for another liver. All of this is very costly. The gas to and from the hospital/doctors, the parking deck fees, the copays and deductibles, the having to eat out away from home, etc.

    Now that we have a stable income again with his monthly disability check (even though it is very low), we could work out a budget and live within it if only we didn't have the credit card bills to pay any more. As it is right now, we are so broke we can only eat 1 meal some days. This is very unhealthy for David as poor nutrition and stress makes his condition much worse. We do get food stamps but only get $142.00 per month. We are looking for someone to help give us a fresh start for the sake of David's failing health. We were hoping maybe that would be you. We swear to never use any credit cards again if we can get out from under these. Once the cards are paid off we won't have a "NEED" for the cards anymore and will cut up the cards, cancel the accounts, and pay cash for everything from now on, but right now the payments on them are eating up our cash. We are in a a sinkhole we can't get out of. The credit cards total around $25,000.00 and the monthly payments are over $500.00. Could you please help us out? We surely would be grateful for the rest of our life and if we ever got the chance we promise we would pay it forward to someone else in need.

  • Hi m
    Oprah my name is Fatima . I am a mother of two children and marry to Mohamed who people constantly thinks he look like usher. I have a very happy marriage and I intend to keep it that way. I am one of your greatest admirer and I have watching your show since I came to the us. You cannot imaging how much you have inspired me. You are a real mentor, and through you inspiration my life had been a peaceful like a flowing river. But one major thing am craving for is to meet with you in person . my email address kallonzatta@yahoo.com

  • I was sorry to hear your last comments about leaving own. I just want You to know I am a white girl raised in the north, with the same life you described. My mother and I washed clothes as your Grandmother did, we hung them on the line, etc. I ironed for five cents a basket when I was eight, and that was only half of what we did for eight of us to survive in the early fifties. The molesting also happened but was never discussed and still has not been. So you see blacks and whites, north and south are not that different. we need to be united, and leave different alone.

  • why Oprah has billionaire makes rich, she should help poor people, sick people, animals save life! she must stop selfish being rich!!! rich isn't worth. God is more important than rich!!!!

    Oprah, I have a question for you . But first let me tell you My son plays football for a Charter school in Az. They have tried to get a football feild for the kids to play on their own feild. But the funding is way to high. The football players need that so the expences will go down so they won't have to travel to the city park to play all their home games. The fees for that is ppretty expensive and not in the buget. The school football team. won State Championship 3 years ago the team is called The WolfPack, haveing there own feild would build self esteem and save them money. Is there anything you can do to help these kids, the school is in Apache Junction, Az. The school is called Apache Trail High school.

  • Most humbly it's an honor to be able to write you. I am a 37 year old woman who God has truly blessed to help others. I help single mothers and fathers who have no where to live. The problem is that I live in a three bedroom home with my husband and 3 children my husband is a barber and I am full time student at Tacoma Community College in Washington state. we don't have the funds to get a big enough house to help all the families we would like to help. Most of the people we have helped are from other cities and new here in Tacoma some have been evicted with children ages 2mths- 13years of age. I know that God is able to provide because he always makes a way for us to help the people who really need it. But I would like for someone to sponsor us at not just providing a place to live but also parenting classes for the young teen mothers, free daycare for those parents wanting to go back to school and better them selves while in our living quarters. I have never reached out to anyone before but this is something God has laid on my heart and I would be honored if you would sponsor us with a grant to help us get started on a mission that we so humbly desire to do.

  • Hello Oprah I to have enjoyed and appreciate your show my name is Betty and I need help in finding the right guy for me. I am a former NBA players wife who was beat and abused for 13 years of the 20 years I was with him. It stemmed from my child hood. When I was born my father disowned me because I came out light skin when my two older sisters were dark skin. My father did not think I was his and he treated me that way. He beat me for years, until my oldest sister asked him why he beat me so much and he beat her. His way of beating was to put me on my knees and put my head in between his two legs and close his legs tight and pull my legs up and choke me while he was beating me. that went on for years my mom was sick a lot and she couldn't do much because she was a abuse woman to. He use to beat her a lot as well, I can still hear her screams. After I was born my oldest brother was born and he came out light skin so my father really poured it on because of that, not until my younger brother who is 8 years younger than me came out light skin is when he slowed down with the beatings. When I turned 12 years old my sisters and brothers has had enough of my dad beating my mom so my brother gave my dads gun and others grabbed knives and other things and told him he had to go before someone got hurt and he did. after that my dating with men were similar to my dad. I meet my NBA husband when I was 19 years old and in the beginning he treated me like gold, several years into having babies he changed he started beating, raping me, all sorts of explicit things which I can go into later. It is so much more I would love to talk about but this is not the time to do it. I left him after 20 years of running from state to state living in battle women shelters with my children. going to court and because he was a celebrity they just would give him a fine for serious abuse, not until Nicole Brown simpson was killed is when they got strick on the athletes . I finally had the strength to leave with fear in my heart, but I said I will go die trying, and I did he threaten me for a long time. jumping out of bushes wherever I was all sorts of things happen so much more happen but cannot explain all here. I need assistance on getting help to know that I am a beautiful person and can be loved again. I have no self esteem or hope for the future please Help!!! thank you!!

    Dear Ms. Winfrey:
    My mother (Mamie Taylor) is a fan of yours and has been since the late 80’s. My siblings and I are in the process of planning her 80th birthday celebration, on September 6, 2014, at the Holiday Inn in Raleigh North Carolina. It would be an amazing gift if the speaker of the hour is the woman she most admires.
    I can only imagine the millions of request you receive daily to be a guest speaker at several types of events. I’m praying our request grabs your divine attention and fate allows for you to attend our mother’s birthday celebration.
    Mamie’s birthday is September 9th, a birthdate she once shared with her beloved Father, and my loving sister. My mother is the eldest of seven siblings whom she helped to raise while raising her ten children.
    Mamie was born in 1934 in Asheville, NC, during an era whereas most women raised their children while the fathers worked. Unfortunately, my father was not always in her life to assist with all that she endured. My mother perused a profession, while raising her 8 children at the time. She later met her second husband, immediately she was pregnant with twins. Shortly after the twins were born, my stepfather passed away and she was left once again to figure out how to raise her, now 10 children alone. Through the grace of the Lord she raised all ten of us; I call my mother a spectacular, superwomen, and my hero. She’s very much loved by all ten of her children, 19 grandchildren, 23 great grandchildren and 3 great-great grandchildren, her siblings, and many other family members whom I expect all to attend her birthday celebration. Approximately, 150 invitations will be sent out to family members and friends.
    If you accept our invitation to be our key note speaker at our mother’s 80th celebration detailed information regarding times, our mother’s theme and whatever other information you and your staff will need to make this happen.
    Thank you in advance for . We sincerely believe your appearance will make our mother so very happy. If you would like to see some of her history please tune into https://www.facebook.com/gloria.cunningham.549?fref=ts&ref=br_tf, she is my mother’s baby sister.
    Sincerely,
    Sallie L Brown
    The Daughter of Mamie B Taylor

  • Dear Ms. Oprah Winfrey,
    You are truly an inspiration to the human race. I had the time to watch the Oprah Winfrey show regularly in the very last year. The finale was was the most powerful closure I have experienced because it opened up so much possibilities.
    My secret is that I have always wanted to be part of your team. That is someone who provides coaching for the viewers, leading seminars with you, providing transformation work where it is needed and wanted.
    I have been working in the field of transformation for a long time. It is a passion that gives me my life purpose.
    I have been told by many that I am gifted because people's lives have changed as a result of coaching them.
    I pray to GOD that this dream of working with you come true.
    In the meantime, may GOD continue to Bless you. The world needs the gift that you are to us.
    Love you immensely,
    Marie Charlot

  • Dear Oprah,

    Sweet words of wisdom has always been the point to everything. And I'm glad you go forward making statements to change the world, that's the whole point, or why say anything at all.....I am a poet, I'm working with my editor right now to get my book published and my version of sweet wisdom on its feet. I'm almost there...it took years of writing since I was 12 years old (now 35), but I'm almost there. Life will shoulder my work and I will go forward to make my mark for the good of humanity. I can hardly wait! It's all boiled down to these precious moments of final touches, and then I'm off. This is my way of giving back to the world, this is how I can tell God thank you. This is my joy going forward, and dreams breathing in. Thank you Oprah for your inspiration! Over the years, your ideas has shaped parts of us all. God speed! Wendy Louise Huggins

  • Dear Madame Oprah Winfrey,
    First and foremost, you are truly amazing. As a kid I grew up watching your show marveled by how you orate, speak, effectively communicating with hearers and listeners. You encourage women all over the world, I believe it feels good to say that you are a champion of women.
    You at 33 years old, my god I been through so many things. Plainly so, I've had a lot of near death experiences where odds where against, but evens prevailed. I graduated from DSU with a degree in History. I currently attend Wilmington University via online and intern at the Delaware Historical Society. Of course, Wilmington, DE does not have the best reputation as a beta city, but its home to gospel music reflects that; it has "scars". Emotional scars are what I have from being attacked by a white german shepard as a child trying to jump over a fence, falling out of a tree 70 ft up flipping backwards w/o breaking branches, drowning in oc Maryland/ dover afb kiddy pool, drowning at the Baltimore fell out of boat, drowning in west chester pa, at a family reunion, drowned at summer camp, 2 motorcycle crashes no helmet, alcohol poisoning od, Percocet od, cocaine od, 2 car accidents, etc. theres more I have them written down. I have an addictive personality because of these emotional instabilities that are seemingly etched in memory. I NEED YOUR HELP. I just quit smoking cigarettes, but hey many great people smoke cigarettes and besides phillip morris is good; I guess. Madame Oprah Winfrey there is something else I need to share with you. IM MARKED, BY THE ANGEL WHO WEARS THE MASK WITH THE CROWN. He is beautiful and kind, his alter ego is S....
    I remember when I graduated college Queen Latifah spoke and wow did she command the audience. I was so impressed that after being handed my degree I gave her a hug and when I got back to my seat I stood, and stood for because a black woman represented an idea. And you know what all my fellow students followed suit I have such a tiny voice my dad was in the military and was very abusive to me and family. So I think at times having a deep voice is being aggressive.
    Im 33 and still live at home with my parents because I have to protect my mom from the abuse I know to well. I was born in Wiesbaden and supposedly my last name is Alston. Im a decendant from Theodosia Burr and Alston's of NC/SC/GA. I have a son who is 11 also 1 brother and 1 sister. I am very depressed and sleepy a lot. I am healthy but I believe the mind is stronger than the body and my mind is cloudy from personal issues. I want to quit drugs altogether. (I really hope your representatives get this note to you). Mrs. Oprah I wanted to email last week but I didn't feel well. My two other siblings are so good to me they always encourage me, half time I think they think that im scatterbrain and wishy-washy. I need one class from wilmu to graduate, but I had to stop and take break I had a nervous breakdown crying a lot anywhere and everywhere. The weird thing about it is that people in public also cried! or showed some emotion. I have hobbies like jogging, yes swimming, im an aquarius, reading and venturing good food.
    I would like to talk to you more. My email is alston.damien@yahoo.com. My cell number is 2027684483. I was compelled to contact you because I remember fighting depression and you came on tv and said, "you have purpose".

    your friend,

    Damien Alston

  • Dear Oprah,
    First I have to say that you are an amazing WOMAN! God bless you always, you have done so much wonderful thing for women all across the world. You are truly the defination of a wonderful human being.
    Growing up in NY can be a struggle, but your show has inspired me in many way and saved me at the same time. Oppose to turning to the street life of hanging out and self distructing, I turned to books and became a reader. Words of inspiration allowed me to meet and an amazing aurthor, who then bacame a very good friend of mine. J. Carie-Ann Burton wrote the book Fridgid Summer. Her book is capitivating and inspirational at the same time. J. Carie-Ann Burton allow you to feel as though you are one of the characters in her book, such books I can not put down.
    Oprah,
    Fridgit Summer by J. Carie-Ann Burton has inspired me, because it has taught me to face my struggles in life head on and to never give up. Oprah I have listened and read about your struggles in life and I know reading is the best therapy. I ask if you can please read Fridgit Summer, it an amazing book and I promise it will not be a wait of your time.
    Thank you for inspiring me and saving my life.
    Your friend,
    Vorina Massiah
