Ellen Gives $50k to Chicago Woman who Helped Homeless During Polar Vortex

Candice Payne, a Chicago real estate developer got a HUGE surprised from Ellen this week.

She was worried about the city's homeless population during last week's -25 degree polar vortex and decided to do something to help them stay warm.

Payne booked 30 rooms at The Amber Inn after many other hotels turned her down. But she couldn’t transport everyone to the rooms herself, so she posted on social media asking people to help, and the post went viral.

Ellen had her on the show and surprised her with $50,000 from Walmart!

So nice! See the video surprise with Ellen below!
