You won't believe her story. When Ellen heard about her on her Good News Blog, she knew she had to have her here. What she did for her is absolutely amazing. Do you have a job for Keenia? Tell us about it, here!

Ellen, I love you and your show...you are funny, kind, and warmhearted! On your show a caption came up that asked if we know of someone who needs a car...it just so happens that I do know of someone who desperately does. I work for our local homeless shelter. and there is a new mother who is currently staying there with her 4 month old baby. She used her tax refund money to buy a much needed car so that she could find work to break the cycle of her homelessness. The car she bought from an individual stopped working a couple of days after she bought it, and she is now in a worse situation, with no money, whatsoever, and a car that doesn't work. It breaks my heart to see this happen to someone who is trying to better her life and the life of her child. If possible, would you be able to help this lady believe in herself again, and provide her with reliable transportation? I wish I could help her, but I am 63 years old, and living mainly off my social security. Thank you, Ellen, and may God bless you, always. The lady's name is Yolanda Starks, and she resides at the Sandcastle Homeless Shelter in Michigan City, IN 46360....

Wow Ellen your thoughtfulness to giving a car away is so very generous. I'm sure the one who receives it will be much appreciated. I am a mom of a very beautiful 20 year old daughter who is very much struggling to continue going to college, work and a place to call home while she stays focused with becoming an educated, and responsible person. She moved out of state near her dad in 2011 after graduating high school .She claimed residency though him as that saves her money with college costs.I'll keep it simple...
Seven months later,she's also taking care of her dad while he was dying of Parkinson's and Demcia. He died June 2012. Before he died he bought a new car her a Kia Soul. That was so we wouldn't have to worry about her breaking down getting to all her responsibilities. The problem is , her dad put the car in his name making .payments.Suddenly a older lost step brother enters the picture. He enters her life makes these promises to help her through the things that need to be done. After a few months as she goes to her car after school, to find her car getting towed up by a repo truck. Although he reassured her payments were being made,that was not actually what was going on. I would love to continue the story,and will if you find this to be of any interest to you. I'm so proud of All that she has done considering her loss in the past three years. I hope you consider my daughter. And if not, I thank you so much for the opportunity to try. I love your show. I put a note in my bucket list to someday be able to see one of your shows live. Thanks for taking time to share your talented humor.
Oh,well......

Hello Ellen,

I love your show i try to watch it everyday. You are a very inspiring woman, caring, and sincere woman. You are such a loving and giving woman. I am a single mother of 1 child my son who turned 2 on March 7th. I have written to your show before when you asked if anybody needed a car. Well I am writting again because I really need this car or whatever vehicle you decide to give like a suv lol. I would like something that would be good on gas like a car or suv. My brother's car was my family only means of transportation for my family but he recently got in a wreck while his car is barely working. I really need a vehicle for me & my son. It is really hard trying to find a ride to different places & waiting on people to pick you up when you are finished when they really don't want to give you a ride. I could look for a job, go grocery shopping, and appointments, etc. I would also like to have a nice home with a nice kitchen, bathroom, and backyard for my son to run around and play in. Or maybe some money if at all possible. I am having a little financial trouble now. I really Hope that you would really Consider Me. I Hope to hear from you or your staff real soon. Take Care, And GOD BLESS YOU

Hi Ellen,
I love your show. I am trying to get from san diego to indiana to see my
mother who has been really sick and I haven't seen her in about 15 years.
I finally have the time to go in may with my daughter and my husband got laid off.
I have an old 189945 toyota 4runner. Not sure she will get us there
safe. Rental companies won't let you take a car out of san diego. Or i can't pay
for the mileage. My trip is may 9 thru may19. I want to get there for mothers day
which is my birthday. I can't disappoint my mom again. She can't travel. I don't have a
extreme heroic story I am just a women who needs to see her mother and
doesn't have much money. Just know u help alot of people thought
I would ask. God bless. Love you, Lisa Young

I was hoping you can help me get a loaner car for that time.
anything you could do to help us get there would be appreciated.
ugh

Can you imagine how the world would be with more people like Keenia? Is so great how Ellen notices the "little people" that is not so little after all. <3
