Oprah Winfrey - Winfrey Boosts Australian Flood Campaign

OPRAH WINFREY has renewed calls for donations to help the victims of Australia's devastating floods, and sent her "thoughts and prayers" to those who have been affected by the disaster.
The TV titan headed Down Under last month (Dec10) to film a number of special episodes of her talk show in the country to mark her final season on air.
The first installment of Oprah Winfrey's Ultimate Australian Adventure aired in the U.S. this week (beg17Jan11) and the star added a message to all those who were caught up in the Queensland floods this month (Jan11).
She told viewers, "(I'm sending my) thoughts and prayers to our Aussie friends in southern Queensland... It is the worst flooding they have experienced in over a century... Our hearts continue to go out to the victims and their families.... We know Aussies are strong and resilient and are already starting to recover."
Thousands of residents have been forced to leave their homes, while more than 25 people have lost their lives in the floods. Stars including Kylie Minogue, Natalie Imbruglia and Mandy Moore have led calls for donations to the flood relief efforts to help fund the massive clean-up operation.
