Award winning, funny and big-hearted, Ellen
Our #WCW is known for her comedy, writing, producing and her award-winning talk show…oh yeah â€” and a sweet, forgetful fishy character named Dory in Finding Nemo. By our count her talk show has won an incredible 26 Daytime Emmys, and 15 People’s Choice Awards. But what we love most is her positivity and huge heart. Thatâ€™s right folks, we are talking about the one and only Ellen DeGeneres.
We admire Ellenâ€™s passion for sharing comedy and goodwill. She extends herself immensely for so many â€” whether it’s because their story needs told or their dream needs a boost to be achieved.
In recognition of all she does, Ellen was named 2016’s People’s Choice Favorite Humanitarian. As the folks at People’s Choice say, “For years, Ellen has used her platform to help those in need, promote good causes, and give back whenever possible. With the help of generous sponsors and other celebrity friends, the talk show host has been able to change the lives of people all over the world!” Check out this compilation of videos showing how Ellen has given back over the years. It’s sure to leave you feeling good, and maybe even inspired to do a little giving back of your own!
