Thanksgiving is so close, I can taste it! I can also taste it because I got some cranberry sauce on my collar.
 
I’m so thankful to have a show where I can help people in need. This week I’m celebrating Thanksgiving week by honoring amazing families. For 10 seasons I’ve found people and stories that have touched my heart, and I’ve done what I can to give back to them -- from families in need, to incredible everyday heroes, these are some of my favorite moments from the whole show. I’m looking back on a lot of them, and creating new ones as well!
 
This week, one couple is getting everything but the kitchen sink! Actually, I’m renovating their entire house, so they’ll probably get a kitchen sink, too.  
 
One of my favorite people to surprise is Lisa Jarmon. She’s here to tell me about life in her new house. I’ll also be showing some of her legendary reactions.
 
Speaking of things I’m grateful for… Sophia Grace & Rosie are here! It’s the last time I’m gonna get to see them before they have to return to England. Apparently, they have things like “school” and “family” to get back to.
 
Jesse Tyler Ferguson is swinging by from the set of “Modern Family.” Every time Jesse is here, something hilarious happens. Whether I’m scaring him, or throwing flour at him or throwing chocolate pudding at him, it’s always fun for me. I can’t believe he keeps coming back.  
 
Also, the star of “The Hunger Games” series, Jennifer Lawrence, is here for her first appearance on the show! She’s only 22 and has already been nominated for an Oscar. When I was 22 I had a perm and a mullet at the same time.
 
There’s so much to be thankful for this week. One of the things I’m most thankful for is you.
 
See you Monday!

I am a great fan and I am in the need of help.
I am a single father of two that has been bless to raise the two to the ages of 22 and 20. They were born in the Dominican Republic, I could have left them, but being the responsible person that I am, We came to the USA in 2007. With the economy as is, I have not been blessed enough to find a new JOB. The kids grandmother has been sick for the past 6 months, I want so much help me with round trip for them to be able to visit her before she goes to heaven. Can you with your large heart, find a way to help with round trip tickets to and from the DR.. Enough about me, I am a great fan, you make me laugh every time I watch your..I wish you all the success in your career, kiss your gorgeous mother for me and tell the wife hello.

Hi Ellen, I like when you have Sophia Grace and Rosie on the show. They are so cute. They can make anyone day a little happier. And the outfits that they are really cute. I have two niece who love to dress up, the only they like even better, is when they get to dress up with them. I have a great time. They are 5 and 8 years old and cute. I think I just said that because they are my niece. I am really looking forward to your show this week. You have some great people this time. See you at 3:00 tomorrow. Love Gale

I dont know what to write about except my Aunt and her son in Taylorville,IL. She is terminally ill and in desperate need of a lung transplant, I have emailed the 700 club and have asked many people for help to no avail,Ellen my Aunt is an angel among us and with my finanancial situation worse of than hers and almost being killed on May 19th of this year alone and unable to give what I so desperately want to,Idont know where else to turn I gues what Im sayin is she is the only family I have and I want my son to get to know her,but I also understand when god wants her to finaly to come home he will take her too. I dont know where to turn or if even you can help us but I know that you have a wonderful great big heart and maybe can find a way to bring ustogether for therest of her days I Love her so very much and need her in my life because we are all we have. We both could use a vehicle,home and financial means so we dont go on the streets. God Bless and any little miracle will help.

Hi Ellen, thank you for not just making us laugh but for showing that you truly care about people. Your kindness and warmth show in your eyes and you smile.

I also wanted to tell you a funny ( I think it is funny) story. My name is Dorie. And during the time Nemo first came out my daughter Kate and I went to Disney. Now we went to dinner one night at the Rain Forest Cafe and they sat us right in front of a large fish tank. During the evening, DOZENS of children would yell, " Look Mommy, there's Dory!" " Look Daddy, there's Dory!" Over and over I kept looking up thinking someone was calling for me. My daughter and I still laugh about that night. Thank you for making Dory the fish so sweet, I still get ask if " I'm a natural blue"
You take care and have a wonderful Christmas holiday.
Sincerely, Dorie Wilson
Mount Vernon, Ohio
