Ellen Is De-Generous for Children’s Hospital Los Angeles
We’re blown away by the tremendous response to our recent Ellen DeGeneres campaign supporting Children’s Hospital Los Angeles (CHLA). Donations poured in, making this one of our most successful Prizeo campaigns ever!
It all began with Jimmy Kimmel’s story about his newborn son Billy’s congenital heart disease and open-heart surgery hours after he was born. Jimmy’s monologue touched the hearts of people around the world. Wanting to do something to help her friend and bring awareness to the fantastic work CHLA is doing, Ellen offered a trip to Los Angeles for one lucky winner and nine of her friends to sit in the Skybox during the “12 Days of Giveaways” this December.
Donations helped CHLA to amplify their efforts by increasing funding for research and care toward the 350+ different specialty programs and services they offer. In these past three months, the wonderful physicians and nurses at CHLA helped patients and their families weather some of the hardest moments they’ll ever face.
Grand prize winner Heather R. will be attending the taping of “12 Days of Giveaways” in December with 9 of her friends and we couldn’t be happier for her. “I can’t even believe it,” she says. “I never win anything. I’ve had 3 surgeries in 2 years and I ended up lying on the sofa a lot because I couldn’t walk, so I just started watching Ellen’s show. You see other people and you realize ‘my life’s not so bad.’ I can’t wait to call my kids!”
