Toyota’s “Standing O-Vation” Award

Following the wise words of Oprah’s four trailblazers, Winfrey along with Toyota ambassador Amy Purdy awarded a local citizen $25,000 for her dedication to making a difference in her community.

As the founder of Camden Sophisticated Sisters, Tawanda Jones (center) has devoted her time to helping youth in the Camden neighborhood of New Jersey with her non-profit that keeps inner-city kids busy with performing arts activities. In addition to receiving a check from Toyota, Jones also received a donation from a local citizen in the audience who matched the check and gave an additional $25,000.
