It recently came to light that Candice Payne was the anonymous donor who put the tab of 70 hotel stays for homeless people on her credit card. She then reached out on social media to aid in the organization of transport and food for everyone.
Not content with that, Candice is keen to continue working for the benefit of others. She’s created a non-profit called Action for a Cause, and plans to acquire and do-up properties for long-term housing needs for those who remain homeless.
When TV sensation Ellen DeGeneres caught wind of the idea, she decided she’d help. She invited Candice onto her show to talk about her good deed, and offered her $50,000 towards her fundraising goal (Candice has a GoFundMe campaign to help kickstart the new initiative).
It’s said that half the amount was donated by Ellen herself, with Walmart matching her sum so that Candice could leave the studio a very happy lady indeed.

Videos like this just simply make my day. I’m so happy Candice is being recognized and hailed for her exemplary efforts.
