Introduction

  • St. Jude's Hospital is America's 3rd largest health care charity
  • The goal of this charity is to raise money to help pay for the ill children and find a cure to get rid of cancer and all the challenges it brings to the families,
  • Ellen decided to start supporting this charity because she wants to see more kids become cancer free and not suffer from this disease.

Biographical Information

  • Ellen is one of the most popular comedians and the host of a successful daytime talk show. She is known to young viewers because she played the voice of Dory in the animated movie Finding Nemo.
  • Ellen raised 3 million dollars on her Oscars selfie and she donated 1.5 million of that money to St. Judes.
  • What I admire about Ellen is that she is always true to herself and she stands her ground and lives her life the way she wants to. She never listens to what other people have to say about her.
