Ellen DeGeneres is one of those celebrities who constantly uses her fame and power to help those who are less fortunate. Using her popular daytime talk show as a platform, not only does DeGeneres help families in need with some of her famed giveaways, she also helps people who have faced different kinds of hardship.

According to Hollywood Life, DeGeneres recently reunited three children who survived when their car was submerged in icy water with the people who saved them. Roger Anderson was driving his children Mia, 9, Baylor, 4, and friend Kenya Wildman, 9, when the car became submerged.

Anderson tried to save the kids, and bystanders jumped in the water the help in the rescue. DeGeneres not only reunited everyone, but she gave everyone a trip to Disneyland and $10,000 scholarships for each of the children. Everyone also received the prizes from the "12 Days of Giveaways," which DeGeneres does during the holiday season.

A known philanthropist, DeGeneres is the poster child for celebrity karma. The amount of generosity DeGeneres displays on a daily basis has made her a Hollywood favorite. Just last night, the comedian received the People's Choice Award for Favorite Daytime TV Host.
