Ellen DeGeneres had a rough patch in 2020, accused of mistreating staffers on her eponymous talk show. For many, it came to a shock, as the good-natured comedian has long been known for kindness and generosity. She has donated millions to hurricane relief, fighting cancer, animal rescue, wildlife (through The Ellen Fund) and, um, anti-bullying efforts. One of DeGeneres' biggest projects has been the Small Change Campaign, which she launched with Ben Affleck and is a campaign dedicated to helping Feeding America. And remember that Oscar night selfie — the one filled with countless celebrities? Well, thanks to DeGeneres using a Samsung device for the memorable shot, the company donated money representing how many retweets it got. That enabled DeGeneres to direct Samsung's funds, some $1.5 million, each, to the St. Jude Children's Research Hospital and the Humane Society.
