Call her Generous Degeneres. Ellen DeGeneres, comedienne and host of her own talk show, is known for making dreams come true through her charitable contributions. Recently, she helped a duo of dedicated educators make major improvements at their school through a donation of $100,000, according to NBC affiliate NBC17.
Fourth grade teacher Sarah Myrick was watching the Ellen show and was moved when she saw the host give similar donations to other schools. She decided to write to DeGeneres, explaining the situation at Eastway Elementary School in Durham, North Carolina. There, around 40 percent of students are homeless or live in shelters, according to the news source.
Myrick and the principal at the school, Kendral Flowers, were shocked when Ellen invited them to a taping of her show and presented them with a check for $100,000. The teacher told the news source that the money will go toward new technologies for students.
When her career finally comes to a close, it's likely DeGeneres will have racked up some major good karma. The host has contributed to important organizations such as Feeding America and the American Red Cross, according to Look to the Stars.
