|Oprah and JLMC pay tribute to Debbie Ford|
As many of you may know, Debbie Ford – beloved author, transformational speaker, and founder of The Collective Heart – passed away Sunday night in the company of her family. After a nearly two decade-long battle with cancer, Debbie was ready for life's next adventure.
Oprah just posted a beautiful tribute to Debbie and in her honor, OWN: Oprah Winfrey Network is airing an encore of Oprah's "Super Soul Sunday" interview with Debbie Ford on Sunday, February 24 at noon ET/PT. Then, tune in at 1 p.m. ET/PT to watch Debbie's past Oprah Show appearances.
Beyond her deep friendship with Vivian, Debbie was a champion for Just Like My Child Foundation's cause. First, by helping to build several schools in rural Uganda – where children who would otherwise not have access to education are now thriving with the opportunity to reach their full potential. Next, Debbie and The Collective Heart took on the Girl Power Project with us: pledging $100,000 to help empower 10,000 at-risk adolescent girls in Uganda. Many of you have seen photos and updates from our first official Camp Girl Power, held in January – none of it would have been possible without Debbie and The Collective Heart's support and passion.
In lieu of flowers, her family has asked that donations go to The Collective Heart to carry on Debbie's legacy of compassion and empowerment, by touching the lives of over 10,000 girls in Uganda through Just Like My Child Foundation's Girl Power Project.
