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!

Hello Ellen. I wanted you to know that I am a big fan of yours and I don't miss a show. There are times that I have to work over but I either record your show or have it on TV at work.

Ellen, I know your one of the kindest people on earth who helps people when they desparately need it. My sister-in-law has Stage IV lung cancer, edrenal cancer, asopogas problems swallowing because of the tuma but stays upbeat despite her pain and mounting financial bills due to the outrageous medical costs. She is presently on a trial clinic and for 90 pills (3X daily, the cost for one script is $12,900) Obviously she's fallen behind on all her bills, mortgage etc. She is the nicest person and so good hearted. She'd love to come to your show, Do you do "make a wish" programs, where is somewhat of a last request type of show. We couldn't fly out due to financial reasons, but maybe Jeannie could show up at her door , I'm her loving sister-in-law Diane, and her name is Ellen Rondinelli from Milton, MA, just outside of Boston. I look forward to hearing from you or one of your amazing team members....Be Kind to One Another, Love You Tons, Diane

Hi Ellen, I have been raising my three grandchildren for the last 10 1/2 years. The middle grandchild is a special needs child and he was in a regular public school. It took me 6 years to get him into the correct school. They fought me all the time because they didn't want to pay to send him to the school that benefitted him. The bullying then started with the kids and then the principle (Mrs. Rudar) and his teacher, I believe it was his math teacher, not sure, started bullying him also in which he started being unbearable to handle at home and in school. I am really glad that you take part in this issue because it is a growing problem. Especially when the principle and the teacher start and the other students see this and join in. They always pointed the finger at him because they did not have the facilities or the right teachers for his disabilities. Again, thank you for acknowledging this very important issue. Audrey

Hi Ellen, I love your show. Its truly amazing to watch a talk show host as yourself. The things you do blows my mind away. The reason for this post I'm not about Greed!!! I am very blessed and grateful for what I have in life. Yes my husband and I have been through many obstacles in life!!! But we pick our selves up and have no choice too move on. IT'S a struggle on everyday bases, but we do it. Yes it's sad too see our economy. People losing their jobs, homes, and ect. It's very sad. MY husband of 12 years fights everyday to get out of bed to work. But he does it. I myself am a stay at home mom, with pain through my body 24/7. My husband takes care of me. He also is raising his granddaughter as his . My step-daughter GAVE up her kids. At one point we had them all. Ellen my husband is truly my hero:-).He takes care of people in need all the time. My family, me, grandkids, people in need, animals. Anything, anyone you can think of he's there. He never does Anything for himself at all. The man basically has no clothes and ect. I am wanting him to have amazing Christmas this year. I don't have the means to do it myself. Or I wouldn't be on here humiliating my self. Ellen if you could find it in your heart too help him this year. He's my Angel and I would give Anything to see his face light up. He's truly a blessing. Thanks Shawna from Indiana

Ellen, It would be a blessing for our family if we could experience a Christmas Holiday with no worry of debt, work, and the worsening of illnesses in the family. Through the years each of our illnesses are affecting us harder. I have a neurological disorder, Dad has diabetes ( his pancreas has stopped working). One of my boys has Add/ Anxiety. All these issues are hard to deal with as a mother and wife, but I Love Them Enough to try my best!! Please help me with this years Christmas experience!! We've had much more to tell, just not to post!!! Hope you can help our Family this year! Love, Vickie Stermer
