Reaching out to Oprah Winfrey

Published by at 4:51 pm under Hearing Loss

Oprah Winfrey is an inspiration to people all over the world.  I was especially touched by her speech during her last show:

“Each one of you has your own platform.  Do not let the trappings here fool you.  Mine is a stage in a studio, yours is wherever you are with your own reach, however small or however large that reach is.  Maybe it’s 20 people, maybe it’s 30 people, 40 people, your family, your friends, your neighbors, your classmates, your classroom, your co-workers.  Wherever you are, that is your platform, your stage, your circle of influence.  That is your talk show, and that is where your power lies.”

I’d like Oprah to be a part of our small, but special group.  Our DeafandHoH community could benefit from the exposure and support she would provide.  So, as some of you already know, I wrote an email to her explaining why I had started Open Chat Night and DeafandHoH.com several years ago.  I got a couple of responses, but unfortunately they were generic mass emails.  In other words, I am only on her mailing list.

One email won’t be enough to get her attention.  That’s why I’m considering a DeafandHoH.com email/mail campaign to contact Oprah and ask her to support our group.  I’m planning to write a brief email/letter for members to send out to her.  Together, we can create a strong message for Oprah, and who knows, she just might respond.
