In 2016 Ellen Gave A Dedicated Teacher New iPads And $50K For Her School

Presenter Ellen DeGeneres doesn’t just have celebrities on her show. Often she brings out people who have in some way improved their communities: teachers, leaders, first responders and so on. DeGeneres, whose motto is “Be kind to one another,” surprises these people with amazing gifts that they can use at work. One person she invited on her show was a young health care professional doing an important job in difficult circumstances.

Ellen DeGeneres is certainly determined to prove that kindness can change the world. Indeed, she outlined her philosophy at the People’s Choice Awards in 2016, after receiving the Choice Humanitarian accolade. “I started out as a comedian and I wanted to make people laugh,” she explained. “I wanted to make people happy and feel good.”
