12 days faq

Did I win?!
If you have been chosen as a lucky winner, you will be notified via telephone or e-mail. If you do not hear from an Ellen staffer, you unfortunately have not yet won. But keep entering each day to better your chances!

Can I enter to win the prizes every day?
Of course! In fact, we want you to! It will give you more chances to win!

Can I call the show to find out if I won?
Unfortunately, our receptionists don't know who won the 12 Days prizes. We announce the winners on the air and we post a blog each day that lists the winners!

How are the 12 Days prize winners chosen?
We choose our 12 Days prizing winners completely at random every day.

I have been entering to win double the prizes on Facebook! Have I won?
This year, Ellen is giving away double prizes to fans who enter on her Facebook page, facebook.com/ellentv. If you have been chosen as our lucky Facebook winner, you won't be listed as a winner on the site or on the show, but an Ellen staffer will contact via telephone! So don't forget to enter on Facebook every day!

I tweeted #PickMeEllen. Did I win the prize?
An Ellen show staffer will contact you if you have been picked as a Twitter winner!

Can I see a list of the winners?
A list of the winners is posted on ellentv.com every day. Be sure to check back every single day to find out if you have been chosen as a winner!

I think I saw my name listed as a winner! How do I get my prizes?
If you are a winner, we will contact you via e-mail or phone. If you don't hear from an Ellen staffer, you unfortunately have not been chosen. But keep trying, it could be you next time!

I know I saw my name but I didn't get a call. What do I do?
Because Ellen has so many fans in all cities, and the show does not reveal last names on our website, the likelihood of a common first name is high. If you have been chosen, you will be contacted via the telephone number or e-mail that you provided when you entered. If you are not contacted, you unfortunately have not yet won. Keep entering!

My Christmas was great because I spent it at the Union Rescue Mission helping others rather than spending time alone at home thinking about my financial challenge. It will all work out eventually because GOD said to give and it will be given back to you. Happy New Year everyone. Things will get better

Dear Ellen, I am not entering to win the 12 days of Christmas for myself, but IF I do win, I want to donate all the prizes to several local Pet Rescues. Critter Crusades provides medical care, fostering and finding homes. Last Chance Animal Rescue does the same, their Vet bill this year is $20,000 that needs to be paid. I donate as much as I can, and encourage my friends to do likewise. Giving up the cost of a lunch or a cup of coffee helps. I am fortunate to have everything I need, but these beautiful pets need a voice and help. I know they would be able to auction these items to raise money and pay their current and future bills to help these heaven sent pets that need our help so much. Thank you Ellen. You bring light into our lives every day, you have such a caring, and giving heart, I hope more people will learn from your example and make our world a better place.

Ellen I love your show and watch whenever I can . The cat videos and pics are some of my favs! We could really use the 4 day vacation to see your show . My boyfriend of 14 years is self employed and works so hard to provide for our kids . He's a wonderful man who does his best to take care of us but this year has been hard with little work and I'm a full time college student trying to better myself so I can help him provide for our family. I've been looking for a job for a while and can't find one so we are struggling. We live by his dad who has cancer and this is taking a mental toll on my boyfriend . Our trailer is falling apart faster than we can fix it and with Christmas coming the stress has been even more stressful. Any help would be appreciated. We love you Ellen !!!!!!!!! Keep making people smile!!!!

Hi Ellen & Staff!

There is Totally a blag cloud following me & my parents. I take care of them (Dad is paralyzed & my Mom has dementia). With all the expenses with their medication and other medical needs, I helped them rectify a bug problem yesterday. After the the Exterminator went to the attic, he told me that they have a Rat problem! The expenses are adding & adding.....I would LOVE to be a participant in your "12 day giveaway & prizes" & help out my parents!!!..... My Fingers are still crossed hoping that I am chosen!!!!!!
With my Mundane Tasks of caring for them, I would LOVE to be part of your audience!!!!!
