Ellen Surprises Good Samaritan Who Gave Her Own Shoes
Cailyn Finkel 1/31/2016
As Kelly was leaving a Bears game in Chicago, she saw a homeless woman with a sign saying that she needed winter clothes and boots, that's when she decided to get involved in a more personal way. Kelly took off her own winter boots and gave them to the woman shivering on the street.
Kelly has a history of giving back to others. She bakes cookies for the local fire department, gives veggie trays to doctors working on Christmas Eve and on Valentine's Day she even drops off cards and chocolates for the widows at her church.
So, to show Kelly that we appreciate all the good she does in the world, Ellen gave her the gift of a lifetime! The show host gave Kelly her own pair of shoes, but inside each shoe was $10,000. Ellen tells an emotional Kelly that she's to split one of the $10,000 stacks and give $1,000 to 10 of her friends so they can start their own "Pay It Forward" mission. The other $10,000 was for Kelly herself. She could spend the money however she wanted! But if we know Kelly, she's going to use it to help others and spread good karma.
