This is one of the many reasons Ellen is loved by everyone! Her compassion for not just people but, animals as well. I admire her zest for life! I love how your laughter brightens up my life. Thank you Ellen <3

She wasnt there.She wasnt suppose to be there. Patch and the Detroit Free Press read the announcement wrong. Ellen is a huge supporter of the charity and was donating the dog food. But it wasnt planned that she herself was going to be there. The big semi truck was there, and the dog food was donated. But there were a lot of dissapointed people who showed up.
