Legacy Monday: Ellen DeGeneres

Here at the life chest, one of our favorite shows to watch and laugh hysterically with is The Ellen DeGeneres Show. The world is constantly filled with such negativity and despairing news. It’s always the best to turn on the Ellen DeGeneres Show and escape from such things with her humor. She is always reminding viewers to not take life too seriously and to be kind to others.

One of Ellen’s beliefs is “Be nice to everyone, even though you don’t want to and you may not like certain people. Be kind, friendly, and respectful even if people are not nice to you. That way, you’re not dragged down to their level. Also, there’s nothing that annoys arrogant jerks more than people being nice to them”. We love the positivity Ellen brings to our lives! Ellen is not only a comedian but she is also and avid humanitarian.

She is a huge supporter to numerous charities and foundations including; The Gentle Barn, Clothes Off Our Backs, The Humane Society, Stand Up to Cancer, ONE Foundation, Save the Music, Feeding America, Children’s Health Fund, and countless others. Ellen uses her show to help raise money for certain organizations, like the celebrity dunk tank, which helps benefit research for breast cancer. Her show also includes segments which help out her viewers who are suffering due to economic and other crises. Ellen’s Big Stimulus Package and Cash Clunker are popular ones.

Ellen is an inspiration to us at The Life Chest to be kind and generous to one another and to support organizations and causes that we believe in!
