Oprah -- $10,000 and iPads for Everyone!

0616_oprah_GETTY_101971466_TooFabSurprise, surprise -- It's good to work for Oprah.

Just yesterday, Oprah gave each and every person on her magazine staff a brand new iPad ... and a $10,000 check.

According to AdvertisingAge, Ms. Winfrey herself stopped by Hearst headquarters on Tuesday to commemorate the 10th anniversary of "O, The Oprah Magazine" -- and then surprised everyone in the office with the incredibly generous gifts.

In 2004, Oprah famously gave each member of her show's studio audience a car.

Miss O,

Please read....I heard (could be just a rumor) that you might just might be giving away ipads. So, Miss O, if you are please consider my daughter...She is currently going to school via internet and holding down a job and the best parent, ever , to the cutest 1 1/2 year old....Koko! Her husband, walked away when Koko was just 3 months old...she makes me so proud. She is strong, smart,and always trying something new to make a better kliving for herwself and her babygirl. An ipad (which we can not afford) would greatly help her on this single parent journey. I know everyone writes, calls and asks and I can understand if you can not...My daughter, Vanessa, is unaware that I am asking so, I will stop and say thank you now for all you do and make happen for all you have help.. Just praying that Vanessa, will be one of your selcts. She needs a real boost....Gratefully,seeking your assistance for a wonderful daughter who is working so hard to make her life and her daughter's better each day!

The funniest thing is that despite the fact that it looks like a sob story and the proverbial dog begging at the dinner table, Ms. O has a habit of eventually doing just what the people ask for! Maybe that's how she stays on everyone's good side (and so absurdly rich it makes my brain melt at the thought).
I have saved for my Apple products. I currently am living on a very limited income (under $1000/m), am a single mother to a toddler and I still manage to save enough. I've got an iMac and the iPhone 4. And I don't finance. I'm currently 1/3 on my way to the iPad 2. It's not so damned hard if you budget yourself and make sure you pay what NEEDS to be taken care of before what you want.

Such fortunate people to be in the right place at the right time. If I were to make ONE wish, it'd be fore Gastric Bypass surgery please! My health insurance, Blue Cross Blue Shield of Louisiana, has an iron clad exclusion clause prohibiting it. My husband had the surgery and has lost 150 lbs. I need to lose 300 lbs. Please don't anyone make fun of me. Im diabetic and desperate. The answer is probably no but I thought it couldn't hurt to ask anyway. bigdraws . com
