Ellen’s famous show is known for picking up on heartwarming and uplifting videos which have gained popularity on social media.

Ellen believes that the best way to enjoy life is to share your success with other people so that they can benefit from it. Ellen harnesses the value of popular stories shared on social media to identify and reward hardworking people who give back to society. She also encourages people to be kind to one another, and as a part of this initiative she launched the #BeKindToOneAnother campaign on Twitter.
The campaign enabled Ellen to highlight the story of Kelly McGuire, the Chicago woman who helped a homeless lady in need of winter clothes. Kelly McGuire’s act of kindness was popular on Facebook and the story caught national attention due to a Huffington Post report.

Earlier, Ellen had also invited Sarah Churman, the 29-year-old Texas woman, who became the most famous deaf patient in the world when her heartwarming 90-second video on YouTube “29 years old and hearing myself for the 1st time!” went viral. Sarah had been hearing-impaired since birth and her mother-in-law had helped to pay for the hearing device by cashing in her retirement savings. Ellen was so touched by this selfless act of kindness that she decided to invite the entire family on her show and presented Sarah with a $30,000 check so she could repay her mother-in-law.
Ellen herself has been a source of inspiration and her stand-up comedy acts have inspired many celebrities to venture in the field of acting. Just Jared reported that Melissa Rauch recently appeared on Ellen’s show and the actress revealed that Ellen had inspired her to such an extent that Melissa used to perform Ellen’s stand-up comedy routines for her school talent show.
