With all respect to your choices of whom to help, Ellen, I wonder about the mum and four kids featured on Friday 26 October. The kids had made a surprise video about their mother and how hard she works. They appeared to be adult children and I wonder why the mum is working 3 jobs and never has enough money for even a full tank of gas. I'm not doubting the woman needs and deserves your help and I'm happy she received some of your generosity. But did it occur to no one to wonder why her children don't have jobs and don't appear to be contributing to the household in any way. If my mother had been in that situation when I was a young adult, I would have been busting my butt to find a job so I could help out, even if it was minimum wage at a burger joint.
