When Ellen read Jackie's letter, she wanted to do something to help her. Ellen brought her to the show to hear her story in person, and to give her a surprise that will really lift her spirits -- a new car!

Start working at home with Google! Just work for few hours and have more time with friends and family. I earn up to $500 per week. It's a great work at home opportunity. I can't believe how easy it was once I tried it out. Linked here http://Pow6.com

Hi Ellen, I absolutely adore you and your show!
My name is Bianca I'm 19 an only child and I'm from Australia. I watch your show every chance I can get! I love seeing you help others, it inspires me to be a better person :)
I would like to tell you a bit about my mum and I and how we are struggling at the moment with quite a few things. I'm 19 and about to leave home for university in Ballarat to study psychology, I deferred uni last year because I could not afford to go. My parents are living separately after being split for around 8 years, which has been really tough to say the least. As much as my mum would kill me to know I was writing to you, I think you really need to hear this. Mum has been struggling to keep up with the swarm of bills as every time we seem to be fine a huge bill comes crashing in as well as other obstacles in life. My mum works two jobs to support us, as do i, and we are looking to move into a smaller property as we can't afford to stay where we are. I feel that my mother has had a hard time keeping up with things especially since I'm a teenager with anxiety and depression and it can be hard to handle when I'm feeling low. It was especially hard for her in 2012 and last year as I tried to commit suicide(fist time writing that and saying it out load). I am NOT medicated nor will I be, because with help of family, friends and health professionals I was able to recover. The focus and my main reason for writing to you is that our car is older than i am and is on it's last legs, I as well as my mum and dad have paid $1000's towards keeping it running, as we have two very large dogs (Rottweilers) that we take a lot of places, they can only travel in the station wagon. Mum would love a dog trailer and a car to tow it with, but I can't afford to save for this as well as pay for uni. I currently drive the station wagon while mum drives the Holden barina around. I know many people are less fortunate then we are, however this is the one thing that would/ could get mum and I back on track with our lives. My mother hasn't quite been the same since a lot of other personal things have happened, I won't mention them as others need to write to you with their stories as well. If you could help or maybe give us some ideas or tips on how to recover, it would be much appreciated. I love you Ellen you inspire me to keep living life :)

Do I told the other 5 kids I was in labor and needed to get in the bath to calm the contracktipn but got to the bed and couldn't make it to the bath tub so I got up on the bed and had the baby. And when Derek got there she was in my arms with the cord still atached so Derek cut the cord help me to push out the rest of the aftervbirth then got in the tube washed up. 1and bathed the baby got dress waited for the midwife so it should tell you women can do anything youut your mind too

My son Alec is 10 and was born with Chiari and a Growth Hormone Issues. We live in Dayton Ohio and I have to drive him to Cincinnati 1 to 2 times a week. My car has been broke down since the first of the year and I have to barrow my dads truck to get him to his appointments. I am a single mother on disability I don't have the money to get my car fixed and don't bring in enough money to get a better car. I am running out of hope and not sure how much longer I can use my dads truck. Thank you Ellen for put a smile on our face.

Dear Ellen, my mom doesn't know I'm doing this, I want to be a surprise. I wish my mom could win this new car because, I believe she really deserves it.I'm sixteen and in high school as a sophomore. My mom and dad split up a year ago in December. It's been horrible. My mom suffers from lupus and congestive heart failurel. It was two years ago when she had her heart attack. She was in the hospital for almost a month. It was Deering my fourteenth birthday. I was so scared to lose my mom. They said that she would have to have a transplant, her heart functioned at 13%. They said her heart wouldn't get past 20%.. We all prayed so much! She had to go to the hospital not to long ago, but a miracle happened and her heart is now functioning at 35%! I know there is a lower chance of us coming and meeting you and winning this car, but Ellen this would be amazing and maybe this would bring a little faith back into our family. Love, Kennadey Birdsong

Dear Ellen, For the car give away, I have a story to tell. My wife and I have collectively raised 8 children. We are the typical struggling middle class family. I am currently out of work due to an injury suffered on the job. One and a half years ago two of our sons made us aware of one of their former classmates and friend who through no fault of his own had to vacate the house he was living in and was living in his car. His mother is a drug abuser and his step dad did not want him living with him. So my wife and I decided to open our house to him, mentor him to obtain his GED. Which he now has. He finally was able to get a job and then his very old car died. Now he relies on friends to get him to work on time and to pick him up after.A new car might just give him the light at the end of the tunnel and show him that this is indeed a great society and that people do care. I am sure that you will get a lot of stories and know that you will chose the one that is most in need. Thank you in advance for your consideration and no matter what your decision we will continue to love and support you.
Thank You

She do have a car that get her from a too b that my hubby bought her .(it's not in that good of shape but that's all we could afford). She does her best working and raising my grandson with the help of hubby and me.( known by our grandson as pop pop and mom mom). She a have a heart condition which means she will take meds. for the rest of her life. Being young 25 she have to paid 4 her meds and doctors appointment.. So it would be nice if she could win a new car. That would be soooooooooooooooo awesome. I just thought I might try. Thanks Ellen you are sooooooooooooooooooo cool. Continue happiness and peace too you and your family:-)

HI, I am not sure if the car giveaway is still going on but if so I know someone who really could use one. It is my best friend. She and her son were in a very bad head on collision. She has had 7 surgeries to date. I am just grateful they are alive. I tell her all the time I Love the scars.I will help if only by ear or anyway I can. There are days i struggle with all of this since we live in different states now. She is trying to move close to me but has to wait for all the surgery stuff to be done and finish her college classes. She is doing them all as she recovers. She is such a strong person. I am lucky to know her and her lil man. Hopefully you get this.. Thank you very much for your time.. Oh yes.. Love to watch your show when I am home and able to watch it :)
