Today, Ellen surprised two inspirational women, Susie Williams and Tammi Abrams from Brooklyn, NY via Skype. Susie is the founder of a non-profit organization called “Sisters with Purpose,” which focuses on giving back to their community in Brooklyn. Within her organization, Susie also runs a food bank and a weekly youth program that provides education workshops for local, underprivileged children, and dance lessons. Susie met Tammy while volunteering at the food bank and the two became good friends who better their community together.
Capital One believes people deserve a bank that’s truly on their side, and wanted to share the love with the show. Ellen’s friends at Capital One loved Susie and Tammi’s story, so they surprised them with flights and tickets to see a live taping of the show, and a check for $10,000 to go toward “Sisters withPurpose.” Capital One is designing the banking experience to fit more naturally into people’s lives.
