about-this-page

I'm so happy you're checking out this page! I've been trying to live a kinder, more compassionate life, and I've learned a lot of things along the way. It's not hard to do -- you just need to know how! There is so much that you can do -- from helping to stop bullying in schools, to having compassion for all living things.

I've listed a lot of information here that I think will be helpful. There are books and movies that are important, plus videos of interviews with inspiring people, and links to organizations doing wonderful things for people and animals across the country. And there are easy, healthy recipes which prove that being vegan doesn't mean you can't have delicious meals!

I personally chose to go vegan because I educated myself on animal cruelty. Suddenly, I realized that what was on my plate were living things, with feelings. And I just couldn't disconnect myself from it any longer. I read books like "Diet for a New America" and saw documentaries like "Earthlings" and "Meet your Meat," and it became an easy choice for me.

If you want to learn more about why and how you can do the same, I hope you'll check out my new page: Going Vegan with Ellen.

Take a look at the various reasons I chose to live a kinder, compassionate life. If you choose to educate yourself, it'll be an easy choice for you, too!

Hi Ellen, My name is Elizabeth Ann Bridges, I wrote a short story a couple of wks ago aoout my life history, I did watch your show at one time when i worked at a nursing home, But Ellen i don"t now,i can"t afford cable, my husband died last year August 10 2013, I'm 54 years old, born in Chicago, Illinois, but moved to the south in 2008, in Picayune Ms, now i live in Bay Saint Louis Ms, Ellen I've made a lot of unhealthy decisions in my life, suffering from those causes i made, i was on drugs at one time in my life, but been clean for 14 years, Ellen when i watched your show i saw how, just like your name, a very generious person you are, To honest I am soul searching because i have no where to go, since my husband died things have been so hard, i m a diabetic, high blood, and can't take care of myself by going to the doctor, because i don't have a job nor do i have a good running car, which is why wrote to you earlier where i read if you know someone who need a car, well i have a car but it need so much work i can't fix it and by the time do i would be buying a new car, i know many people write you and i'm one,etc

I am so amazed at how much of a positive you are having on people. To be a celebrity and use that platform as method of encouragement and education is to saluted. I cant help but wonder what triggered your desire to try to fill the planet with sunshine when darkness and harsh reality beats up folks on a daily basis. Thank you for everything that you are doing for deserving people around the world and for the smiles and laughter you give me personally. You really are an incredible inspiration.

So I'm gonna be kinder to me a bit more!!! Such as my new weight gain...I lost 88 pounds and gain them back, with a small patch of Depression.....over this short bit of winter!!!

Was having a feel sorry for myself Christmas, then I turned on the TV to your show. How could anyone stay sad when watching all the joy and generosity you share with the world. I love every minute of it! Today I saw Ashton Kutcher as your guest, & he said "the sexiest thing in the world is to be smart, generous & thoughtful". That is so true! Keep having wonderful guests & giving with that wonderful heart of yours! Merry Christmas!
