Thanks, Wells Fargo

Ellen surprised first-grade teacher Amanda Eaton with a $50,000 check from Wells Fargo! Amanda is one of the finalists for Teacher of the Year in the state of New Hampshire. Like many teachers, she buys things for her students out of her own pocket and even takes them on mini vacations. Additionally, Amanda recently gave her father a kidney, saving his life, and returned to school three weeks later. Wells Fargo’s “small is huge” campaign celebrates how small community efforts add up to huge results. Even things that may seem small can make a huge difference in the lives and communities of those who are touched by them. Find out more about Wells Fargo, here.

Well Fargo's branding and featuring is really great. They have a nice and simple website as well. Having good website is very important to gain a real profile like them. I have built my website from the best website development company, MicroDreamIT. Read more.

Hi, Ellen I think it is amazing how you help families who deserve it especially like Amanda who is s kind and caring. I have a truely breath taking story i would like to share if you could please contact me it would be a prayer answered. I have a true angel living with me and caring for me and my family and i am almost sure not many other young ladies could go through everythng my wife has been through and still walk around smiling and making our little boys know that God is Good even when everything seems like it is bad. She is truly incrediabe, and i know she cries everytime she gets a sec by herself but she will not give up and she will not let us get down, she keeps pushing us to keep going, but i am afraid i dont have much more time to make her feel apreciated and loved. I can't remember the last time she actually got to enjoy life wthout worring about how she is going to get everything done and come up with food to put on the table and gas in the car to get me to the dr,her brother to classes, our five yr old to t-ball and church and keep diapers and clothes on our two yr old. Please pray for our family and for her to get a break soon. Thank you, the Justice Family from Al
