Ellen Degeneres' show is all about giving away

In the teaser of the show, Ellen Degeneres said that they wanted to change people's lives in a bigger way than they thought. Through this show, Ellen and the team wanted to see people get in the spirit of giving and also see that sometimes life isn't that bad as compared to the lives of others.

Meanwhile, Ellen, who is in a same-sex marriage with her wife Portia de Rossi, has been a part of several controversies regarding her relationship. She was recently criticised for being friendly with a Republican president, who is known to have started the Iraq War and for endorsing a constitutional amendment against same-sex marriage.

On being criticised, Ellen stated that she's friends with George Bush and also with a lot of people who don't share the same beliefs as she does. She further said, "We're all different and I think we've forgotten that that's okay that we're all different," as per a leading news portal.
