Ellen DeGeneres Donates Time and Charitable Resources to a Variety of Causes
Pets, children, feeding America, and The Cure, are just a few of the causes Ellen DeGeneres’ charitable resources support. In October, Ellen worked with Aéropostale, Inc. to kick off their first 1 Warm Kid campaign. For every coat donated to the campaign, Aéropostale matched with a brand new coat. To help raise awareness for the campaign, several celebrities, including Ellen, provided signed coats that could be won by campaign donors. The campaign collected over 14,000 coats from over 80 participating schools.
The Gentle Barn; Ellen’s Current Favorite Cause for Charitable Resources
Ellen’s current favorite cause for charitable resources appears to be The Gentle Barn (TGB). TGB mission is the rescue and rehabilitation of farm animals; for instance a dairy farm facing closure had 60 malnourished cows that need rescue and rehabilitation. Ellen and her life partner, Portia, adopted one of the cows.
Working with Ben Affleck, and determined to end hunger in America, Ellen recently kicked-off the Small Change Campaign. This innovative campaign allows individuals to donate their spare change through Coinstar machines to America’s Second Harvest. However, Ellen is focused on emotional needs as well as basic hunger, so she also supports anti-bullying organizations. These organizations are geared largely to improve the daily lives of teen agers.
