Ellen DeGeneres is always doing so much good for people!
Whether it's as simple as making us laugh during all of her shows, or providing a helping hand for those who need it, Ellen is awesome. Period.
So when she heard about single mother Tanya's story, she knew she had to do something — especially because Mother's Day is coming up! What better timing??
Ellen had Tanya on her show and after watching a video about Tanya and her struggle, Ellen brought her up front.
She asked Tanya about her car situation, which is awful, and how she hasn't been able to afford a full tank of gas in a long time.
Maybe a $3,000 Shell gift card will help…
Yup! But that was only the beginning! It's in her name, which when translated, roughly means Ellen The Generous. LOLz!
Check out the video (above) to see what other incredible surprise Ellen had in store.
