Hey Ellen,

Thank you for the Power Ball ticket, my family and I were glued to the internet waiting for the results. Unfortunately we did not win but thank you for giving us an opportunity that we would have never have gotten if it weren't for you. Thank you for having us as guests. Taking my Grandma to see you and seeing her dance, smile, and let loose was more rewarding than than any Power ball jackpot. I just wanted to say THANK YOU!, for bringing my grandma and myself together and THANK YOU, just being YOU! Take care!

I have a Powerball ticket with the numbers 55, 24, 40, 26, 18 with powerball 25. I was told anyone with those numbers could get a ticket to Twelve Days of Christmas. I wrote last year to get my husband Gary Lassin a ticket but never heard back. He has donated his bone marrow to unrelated strangers TWICE and donated red blood cells to a stranger. He is truly a hero and lifesaver. He deserves a treat and he loves Ellen! (As I do) Please let us use this ticket for him to attend a Twelve Days of Christmas show. By the way, you can verify the info on Gary Lassin by googling him - he has been on the news and in the newspaper and he is an unsung hero. Thanks, Arlene Lassin

FIRST OF ALL... OLIVIA NEWTON JOHN AND JOHN TRAVOLTA ON 12 DAYS ON WEDNESDAY 12/5... I DID THE BROADWAY TOUR OF "GREASE" AS JAN AND I WANT TO GO SOOOOOO BAD!!! PLUS, MARIO LOPEZ?! I'VE SEEN EVERY EPISODE OF "SAVED BY THE BELL" SO MANY TIMES, I COULD PRACTICALLY RECITE THE EPISODES!!! PLEASE PICK ME!!!! HERE'S MY CHRISTMAS LETTER: ************************************************ PICK ME FOR A 12 DAYS OF CHRISTMAS SHOW!!! ***I previously sent letters like this to the Ellen in December 2009, 2010, and 2011!!! Even turned in a consideration packet once when I attended a taping. Please let me come to ELLEN’S 12 DAYS!!! ***************** Hi, Santa Ellen! I’ve been a good girl, but on the unemployment list for a year. ☹ Just a temp job here, a crazy boss there, a low paying gig, or a day job… I swear. Tons of interviews and endless applying, a 12 Days of Christmas Show might just stop my crying! So, do you think, Ellen, you could give me a job? I’d even (shh) secretly spike your egg nog! I’d be the best sidekick, assistant, and more! I’d even hold your nose so when you sleep so you won’t snore! A year round elf to keep you jolly and gay! Oh wait, I forgot, you’re born awesome that way! I’ll even write reviews of all the goodies I’d get, I just hope when I’m there I don’t make the audience seat wet! Just kidding about that last part, but I’d be so excited you see that I’ll be screaming out over and over “Woo Wee!” It’s been so hard that back in 2009, both my parents turned 60 and for a party I didn’t even have a dime. Then unfortunately when they both retired in 2011, I still couldn’t afford to throw a party again. They’ve helped me so much, supported me so, oh the gifts I could give back, if I went to an Ellen Holiday Show. All that I want, and all that I need, for Christmas 2012, has nothing to do with greed. It has to do with love and giving back, so please oh please Ellen, can we throw a party for my parents with your big Santa sack? I was top of my classes, worked so hard in school, I never give up, and I’m certainly no fool. Did a Broadway tour, worked for Aretha and Ringo, but I feel so unlucky lately that I can’t even win Bingo! And that’s why I ask, why I think I got nerve, to say please pick me, I’m one who deserves! I appreciate your time and consideration, too, you’d be the cure for the job applying blues. So get me out for some red & green cheer it’ll make us both feel the best that we have all year! Lastly, this is the fourth year I’ve sent you a letter, please respond already cause I know versus Santa, you just might be better! - Thanks! Sarah - P.S. In the background of my photo is a wedgie picker extraordinaire… so not picking me for 12 Days simply wouldn’t be fair!
