Hey Georgie, why are you so afraid of women? Had some issues with your parents????? Go get evaluated and a dose of some good meds! Lotsa luck.

you know it positively sickens me that some jerks can turn something so beautiful into something so awful! Obviously no one has ever blessed you in anything and therefore, you do not know of how much beauty is in the world for people like these to bestow gifts on others! It is a pay it forward thing and it is great to know there are still nice people who have the power to make things happen and they do it! way to go Ellen, and Oprah and all the other doers of the word!

Had she sent the family to Disney and paid for it anonymously, she would be entitled to our admiration.

Ellen may have done something 'nice', but it appears she did so for her own good publicity and benefit.

Those of you helping people and not advertising it, you are the ones who have my admiration and respect.

Thoughtful. Very thoughtful.

Keep it up.

Some people are just so hateful... I don't think that I ever want to read these posts anymore. Very depressing as to how some people think and react to someone being able to do something nice for someone and getting a lot of heat for it. If someone did something nice to THEM, they would sing a different tune....

WOW - You sound like a real Ladies Man. The only reason you are putting people down is you're either jealous or threatened. You are one SAD little person. Long Island white trash at its best.

Ellen did this for her own use. I'm glad the family had a good time, but let's call a spade a spade, shall we. Ellen, and alot of other celebrities dig into that pot of gold only if it benefits them.

And for Klansman: you are an @@shole

Elton John is not a man, he is a woman. Just look at where he takes it and likely gives it too. And we are supposed to be impressed???
