DeGeneres gives generous gift to studio audience

One lucky studio audience at the Ellen DeGeneres show left with much more than some stellar memories.

According to Cosmopolitan, the beloved television show host filled her audience with do-gooders, people making a difference in their communities and in the world in ways both large and small and decided to give them a little more than just a good time. With guests such as a couple who delivered supplies and aid following Hurricane Harvey and a teacher who donated a kidney to a student, Cosmo says DeGeneres introduced her partnership with Cheerios’ “One Million Acts of Good” campaign, asking audience members to look under their seats for the cereal box.

What came next, reports Cosmo, was a major gift: each audience member left with a share of $1 million to not only commemorate the One Million Acts of Good campaign, but  also to celebrate the kindness and generosity of her audience members. DeGeneres’ one hope for her recipients — to continue to spread kindness wherever they go.

“It’s the biggest gift I’ve ever given anybody, ever,” she said, “and I hope you continue to pay it forward and share all the good.”
