Oprah Winfrey has billions of dollars and she enjoys spreading the wealth. To celebrate the ten year anniversary of her magazine “O”, the talk show host showed up at the Hearst headquarters to surprise her magazine staffers. Oprah gave each employee an Apple iPad and personalized case, and a check for $10,000 – regardless of their seniority with the company.

Talk about generous! A Hearst spokeswoman explained, “These were personal gifts to the staff from Oprah to thank them for their hard work and dedication to the magazine.” That’s a big thanks.

Oprah is no stranger to gift giving. On September 13, 2004, she gave every one in the audience of The Oprah Winfrey Show a car. The total giveaway was 276 Pontiac G-6 midsize 2005 sports sedans. Sweeet!
