Ellen DeGeneres

Ellen Lee DeGeneres ( born January 26, 1958) is an American comedian, television host, actress, writer, and producer.DeGeneres starred in the popular sitcom Ellen from 1994 to 1998 and has hosted her syndicated TV talk show, The Ellen DeGeneres Show, since 2003.

Her stand-up career started in the early 1980s, culminating in a 1986 appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson. Carson likened her to Bob Newhart, and invited her for an onscreen chat after her set; DeGeneres was the first female comedian invited by the iconic host to join him for such a discussion, at a time when such an invitation was widely regarded as one of the most influential endorsements available for a comic. As a film actress, DeGeneres starred in Mr. Wrong (1996), appeared in EDtv (1999), and The Love Letter (1999), and provided the voice of Dory in the Pixar animated films Finding Nemo (2003) and Finding Dory (2016); for Nemo, she was awarded the Saturn Award for Best Supporting Actress, the first time an actress won a Saturn Award for a voice performance. In 2010, she was a judge on American Idol for its ninth season.

Mike YaxOr people can look at the facts and realize that Zimbabwe themselves have a management plan to cull elephants to reduce their impact on woodland areas and villages. conservationaction.co.za/resources/reports/zimbabwe-national-elephant-management-plan-2015-2020/ They currently have 83k Elephants in Zimbabwe which in that area is not considered endangered but slightly vulnerable when looking at the entire world population. Also, people keep saying that African Elephants are endangered and that is a false narrative. Asian and other species of Elephants are endangered but African Elephants are in Vulnerable status and are under active management programs exceeding 700k worldwide. Its awfully swell that we can sit here stateside and push our moral agendas on poorer countries and villages and stop them from obtaining trophy hunt income that goes directly to their community when they literally have next to nothing in export revenue... A few elephant tags legally hunted ENSURES the species is protected as a whole. One elephant tag purchased by some rich hunter is going to pay for the protection against illegal hunting... So you are allowing a few to die to pay to stop hundreds of being illegally killed. But, we as Americans push for sympathy for Cecil the Lion and these individual animals thereby STOPPING income from coming in and actually helping the rest of the population. Its an uncomfortable truth to everyone that has seen Bambi and Dumbo but the truth is Trophy Hunting - 1. Pays for the protection of the species from illegally being hunted by funding conservation groups, professional security and anti poaching teams. 2. Feeds entire villages once an animal is taken... They eat it.. And its something that they do not have access to because its illegal to poach them... so .... yeah its feeding them. 3. Provides economic stability to a region that does not have much. Yeah, its uncomfortable but unless you are willing to put up 25k-50 k x however many elephants are hunted I suggest you find other ways to occupy your time. I do love how we are so comfortable with pushing our moral authority on the rest of the world but are not willing to pay for it. I dont trophy hunt and I dont like it but Im not going to spend any time or effort to stop it when from a practical stand point where it is a BALANCE between maintaining the resource and providing income and resources for people Im all for it.

Emily SepetaEllen could you please also help spread awareness about the captive dolphin trade industry? It is an international, global market. For every 1 dolphin you see in captivity, 17 dolphins died in the wild. It is just as barbaric (if not more) than the elephant and big-game hunting industry practices. We could really use your help. Our wild dolphins are being captured and brutally separated from their families, then placed into a concrete pool condemned to a life of performing circus tricks for food. One hundred percent of dolphins in captivity are medicated. They commonly take antacids (because they are so stressed out they get ulcers that lead to other problems), antidepressants (because they are contained in a concrete pool with NO resemblance to their natural environment and are deprived of any natural stimulus), and antibiotics (because they are hand-fed dead fish (stuffed with the medicine mentioned above) and living in confined conditions increases their likelihood of contracting nasty infections). Captive dolphins could really use your help 🙏🏼🐬

TinaCherie McMasters-RayMy granddaughter Kaylie has been a patient of St Jude's since Oct 6 of this year. It's been the longest month and half of our lives. She's strong and a fighter who is the toughest person I know. Thank God for St Jude! They are wonderful and have helped take a huge burden off of my son and daughter in law. We've only at the beginning of a hard, long battle but Thank God for the care and people at St Jude.

Kellie Lynn RarickI had the best birthday ever meeting a birthday goal to give donations to St. Jude. I thank those that stepped up to make that happen with loving, elfless hearts. I love children and they deserve a happy healthy long life and St Jude Children's research hospital does everything possible to make that happen. Thank you St. Jude!

Catherine ErwinMy wish this Christmas is for a cure for the devastating childhood disease called DIPG. Many people have never heard of this disease.This is an incurable brain tumor which spreads out into the pons of the brain and cannot be cut out. Only 4% of money that is given goes for trying to find a lifesaving cure for childhood diseases. My little granddaughter was diagnosed with this terrible disease 1 year ago. She is now only 9 and still tries to go to school on "good days". She has been to MUSC in Charleston, SC and in the near future will be going to Atlanta for treatment, her parents are struggling daily with the issues this has brought upon their family. Maybe it will snow here this winter as she has a wish to see "snow" as where we live we rarely see snow. Her daddy and Mama are so courageous . May God bless all the little children...

Teri McGinnisI have been a Partner in Hope for many years. Even when unemployed, I managed to keep my monthly donation going. Twenty dollars a month doesn't seem like a lot, but it all adds up and helps beyond belief.

Mark HayesI am very grateful to be a monthly partner with St. Jude. I wonder if Mr. Thomas had any idea of the number of lives that would be touched thru this outstanding organization? God bless the children who go here, and the medical staff who take care of them.

Melissa Becker FehrenbacherMy cousin lost her son this past December. He lost his battle almost two weeks after his 11th birthday. He would be 12 December 1st. It has been almost a year that his mother Jennifer has suffered. She lost her mother on Christmas Day a few years back. December just isn’t a good year for her. Dalton suffered from ALD. He went from being a normal 10 year old to losing his life in just a few months. It came so fast without time to process for Jenny. ALD is not very well known, but the awareness is getting out slowly but surely. Jenny is spending her time away from work keeping Dalton’s story alive and trying her best to stress the importance of newborn screening and catching this early enough to treat. I wish there was something that I could do to replace her heartache of losing Dalton. Look her up Jennifer Lindsey and her link to Dalton’s site. Very hard reality that many don’t know about. Jennifer promised Dalton around this time last year that he would be home for his birthday, and she made sure to keep that promise. He arrived home the evening of his 11th birthday and held on to life for almost two weeks with Jennifer taking car of him like the Super Mom that she is! May God be with these boys and help them find a cure for ALD. 🦋💙www.facebook.com/Daltons-New-World-Order-272515986440163/?fref=ts

Joan Hensley WinfreyI love St. Jude's !! No one, even the Family of the Patient has to pay for anything at St. Jude's ! Not for Treatment, Room, Boarding or Food and shelter ! Travel expenses are covered also ! I grew up watching Danny Thomas on "Make Room For Daddy" and also watching Marlo Thomas on " That Girl" . My Husband & I have always given to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital at Christmas and at other times of the year. When my Husband passed away last Nov. 28, 2016, I gave in his Memory . I and our Family will do the same this year and there after . What a Wonderful Dream Danny Thomas had !! And now his Daughter, Marlo Thomas is continuing that Dream !! Blessings & Love , Joan H. Winfrey 😊

Francine PerryI am from Toledo. I am so very thankful to Danny Thomas for all the awesome work he has done with St Jude's Hospital!! The thing that gets to me is that, St Jude's Hospital Needs Donations Year Around! Charity Is NOT Just during the Holiday Season! Charity is Each and Every Day! It is Simply like Ellen says: Be Kine To One Another"! Everyday. No Matter What. Because I Guarantee, that what ever you are going through, Someone Some Where is going through something 100 Xs worse. We were put on this earth with others to Help one another. Your kindness towards another person could prevent them from committing suicide. A simple smile, a hug, a 5 minute conversation of LISTENING to their problems. Taking 5 minutes to PRAY from them: Can Change Their Life and Yours! WHAT DOES IT COST TO BE KIND?????

Donna GalliganWhen I first saw Noah On TV I thought it was a shot back in time of our grandson, - red hair, build and all. Connor even had a shirt exactly like the shirt Noah was wearing. Connor (our grandson) is now in college. Just finished watching Noah on the Last episode of the Toy Box. I love this kid - He is hilarious! And he has soooo much love for his grandfather! AND 🎉 Happy Birthday Noah! 🎈🎂 Hope you have a fun-filled birthday celebration and it lasts for at least 5 days! 🍰🍦Will continue to watch for you on TV. Love your personality!

Andrea LokenInteresting but not my thing. I find the blue paint breaks up the unity of the piece and it looks disjointed and clunky to me as a result. And the tchotchkes are just cluttering the piece. But if you like it, then fill your boots 👍🏻
