Ellen Meets Mom Dedicated to Giving Back to Community


So I love talking to
people in my audience. Right now, I want to take a few
questions from the audience. And there’s some names here
of people that have questions. Sage [? Treiman– ?]
where is– [? Treiman? ?] [SHRIEKING] OK. [LAUGHING] Hello! Oh, OK. Hi. Hi, Sage. Hello! Hello, Sage. Hi. Hi! Is it [? Treiman? ?] Yes. [? Treiman, ?] like try, man. Try harder, man. Oh– all right. Now I’m looking for cameras. [LAUGHTER] [CHUCKLING] All right. What is your question? I– OK. I want to know how and why you
chose Andy to constantly pick on. Oh. Well, you see him. It’s just so easy to scare him. I mean, if it was easier
to scare someone else, I would do that. But he’s just so easy. I can scare him. And then, a minute later,
I can scare him again, and he’s equally scared. It’s so– I mean,
you know, watch. Ho! [THUMPING] See? Thank you. Thank you! All right. Thank you. How did you not know that
was going to happen, Andy? When we’re talking
about it, Mary always goes behind you and– OK. Let’s keep going. Keep going. Jasmin Arellan– Arellano? Jasmin? Hi. Hi. How’s– [APPLAUSE] [SQUEALING] Hi, Jasmin. Oh, my god. Hi. Arellano? Yes. Um, Arellano. Arellano. Oh, I may not get through this. Oh. I don’t have a question. You look very familiar. No. Oh, you were dancing. I saw you dancing
earlier or something. OK. Yes. What is your question? I just– I don’t
have a question. I just want to– Oh. Hey, look at that. I just want to say
thank you so much for– [SNIFFLING] –getting me through
some hard times. I really looked up to
you since middle school. Thank you, Ellen. Well, Jasmin, that’s so sweet. Come here. Come meet me. [MUSIC PLAYING] [CHEERS AND APPLAUSE] Hi. That’s so sweet of you
to say that I got you through some hard times. That’s so sweet. This is surreal. Oh, my goodness. Well, I like to meet people
who I– you know, or that are– you know, that I help. So. How’s Ian doing? Oh, my god. Yeah. He’s doing great. Yeah? Yeah. My son, right? Yeah, that’s right. Yeah. I have a son. He’s two years old. Yeah. So this was actually
not an accident. I know who you are, and
that’s why I know who Ian is. And I know that I have helped
you through some tough times and that you’ve been struggling. But what I do know about you is
even though you’re struggling, you take care of other people. Yes. Tell everybody about the peanut
butter and jelly sandwiches. [LAUGHING] So me and my in-law,
a couple months back, we decided to make some
peanut butter jelly sandwiches and drive around
our city to give out to the homeless with a little
snack and a little water bottle. I also get a free meal at
work every day that I work. And I get it, and I
actually drive around the city to look for
a homeless person that is deserving of it,
you know, because they need it more than me. That’s so sweet. And so you want to
go back to school, but you can’t afford
the tuition right now, and you want to be
a teacher, right? Why do you want to be a teacher? Growing up, my parents
weren’t really involved in my education. So when I was in middle
school and high school, I was a little bit
older to understand. I noticed that my teachers,
I could always go to them. And I kind of want to be
that support to other kids in school, you know? Like if they’re going
through tough problems, I want to be that teacher. You’re amazing. I’m here for you. You’re amazing. That is so sweet. [APPLAUSE] Thanks so much, Ellen. All right. I love you. I love you, too. Oh, my god. You know who else
loves education? I don’t know if you know this,
but my friends at Shutterfly. And they want to help you
achieve your dream of becoming a teacher, so they’re going
to give you this backpack right here so you
can go to school. Thank you, Ellen. All right. Oh, my god. And in it is $25,000. Oh, my god. [CHEERING]
