The Aussie Love Angel Oprah Must Meet

283 Signatures Goal: 500

The queen of television, Oprah Winfrey, is coming to Australia and while she is here there’s one person she needs to meet. Perth Grandmother Ros Worthington is the country’s most inspirational philanthropist - she has dedicated the last twenty years of her life to establishing three charities that touch the lives of thousands, making her perfect to be featured on the show as part of Oprah’s Angel Network. Abducted as a toddler and sexually molested from the age of four, Ros has battled breast disease, divorce and near bankruptcy before suffering a nervous breakdown after her second husband’s tragic suicide. But while most people would find such traumas crippling, these ordeals have simply made her more determined to make a difference. Best known for founding Western Australia's Make a Wish and Breast Cancer Foundations, Ros has also established the Love Angel Foundation, aimed at teaching children the values of global love and compassion and how they, too, can become adults who pay it forward. Through Love Angels Ros is creating a revolutionary program which is the first of its kind in the country aimed at educating and nurturing the next generation of philanthropists. Recently in conjunction with Lifeline WA, Ros launched the biggest and most comprehensive strategy this state has ever seen to tackle the silent mental illnesses of suicide and depression – the HelpMe campaign. At almost 60, Ros is now currently in training to do what most her age would find unthinkable – to trek almost one hundred kilometres along the treacherous Kokoda Track to raise more money and awareness for breast cancer. She has also been nominated for the prestigious Australian of the Year Awards, 2011. So please join this page and let Oprah know how much you’d love Ros to be on her show. It would be great for the rest of the world to see our humanitarian spirit and the inspiring Aussies who work to change the lives of people around the globe.

    For those who have been blessed to know Ros Worthington and her story will 100% agree with me that there really is no other greater humanitarian, philanthropist nor renowned speaker like her. For those who that don’t will just have to take my word for it that this fierce, strong, courageous and selfless woman has restored faith in many that all dreams are possible no matter the hurdles life may throw at you. She has been both student and teacher in how to believe in oneself, not to mention being an incredible mentor and friend to many.

    Oprah, I know that here are so many inspirational people world wide with amazing stories but without a doubt Ros has been such a beacon of hope, strength and inspiration for so many people that rose herself may not even be aware of. She is so many peoples living angel and we all want her to meet you x ali

    Ros has made such an impact on so many people and inspired us all to be better people. She has shown us that despite the hardships and hurdles people may face together we can support each other and that no-one is ever on their journey alone. I cannot even begin to count the amount of people I personally know that she has helped in one way or another. One of the most loved and admired people I have been privileged to meet.
