Lisa Jarmon: Car, 12 days of giveaways, Disneyland trip and a new home
This gift was one of the biggest in "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" history when it was handed out in February 2012. A single working mom from Texas, Lisa Jarmon, got the surprise a lifetime when she was selected out of the audience for her good energy back in 2011 — and was given a brand-new car. She had never even owned a car before! The next year, she was brought back on Ellen's birthday episode and given all of the "12 Days of Giveaways" prizes. Then, a month later, her dreams came true again when Ellen gifted her a trip to Disneyland — as well as her own home. Yes, the talk show host gave her a custom-built house by KB Home.
Kirby Thomas: $50,000, Target gift cards, a bookmobile and a home makeover
In February 2014, McAuliffe Elementary in Broken Arrow, Oklahoma, got a big surprise when Library Media Specialist Kirby Thomas earned the school a $25,000 check from Entitle. Plus all the students got a $25 gift card from Target. Then Ellen DeGeneres went all-out by donating a bookmobile to the school. But it didn't stop there! In May 2016, Ellen and Shutterfly gave them another $25K to fund summer school. And since Kirby just adopted two foster children, Ellen also gifted her a family-friendly home makeover.
The Jensen family: NFL tickets, jerseys, $10,000 and $25,000 at Whole Foods
The Jensen family got a huge surprise from Ellen DeGeneres in 2011. John Jensen and his wife Tammy Jensen work at Putnam City West High School in Oklahoma City, where low-income students were in need of more food. They started their own pantry at the school to try to help out and even moved one of the students in with their family. Ellen recognized how great they were and gifted them VIP tickets to a New Orleans Saints football game, jerseys, $10,000 and a $25,000 gift card from Whole Foods to help keep the pantry stocked.
Tatiana: A trip around the world
In October 2010, dishing out $40,000 to a random audience member was Ellen DeGeneres' biggest prize giveaway yet. Show-goer Tatiana was beyond thrilled when she won the "Will He Wonka or Will He Won't?" game. The golden ticket was a trip for four around the world to any destination, plus $12,500 in cash, all totaling $40K.
Sherrie Gahn: $100,000 and backpacks full of school supplies

Sheri: New Buick, 12 Days of Giveaways, a new job and $10,000 at Neimans
Single-mom-of-six Sheri, who in the same year lost her husband to a heart attack as well as her job, got a nice gift from Ellen DeGeneres — a new Buick. Then in January 2011, she got all of the 12 days of giveaways prizes plus a shout-out from Ellen for a job. But, it wasn't over yet! In February, she went back on the show for Ellen's 1,300th episode and was offered a job after Ellen made a few phone calls and hooked her up. To help her get some new clothes, she also got a $10,000 check to Neiman Marcus.
Amanda Eaton: $50,000
Wells Fargo teamed up with Ellen DeGeneres to give away a whopping $50,000 to Amanda Eaton, a New Hampshire Teacher of the Year finalist, in May 2014. The selfless educator had been paying for supplies and trips for her students out of her own pocket.
Struggling pregnant mom: $10,000 and Mother's Day giveaway bundle
Who could forget Ellen DeGeneres' "Yay May!" month back in 2010?! She gave a mom of six in need of baby clothes and supplies everything Ellen had gifted folks during her Mother's Day giveaway, plus $10,000. The struggling mom had given away all of her baby stuff after her fifth child but unexpectedly got pregnant again.
Struggling Sue: New Infiniti and gas money
In May 2009, Ellen DeGeneres received a letter from a struggling new mom. As part of her "Ellen's Big Stimulus Packages" segment, the talk show host gave Sue from Chicago $45,000 worth of prizes, including a brand-new Infiniti EX35 and a gas card.
Karen Johnson: College scholarship
Karen Johnson, who was working three jobs, got accepted to Johns Hopkins for graduate school but couldn't afford it. So in May 2009, Ellen DeGeneres gave her $1,000 as part of her "$1,000 a Day in May" segment. And on top of that, Ellen gave her a $15,000 college scholarship with the help of Sara Lee.
Sarah Hoidahl: $10,000 and a new TV
This may not have been the biggest gift, but it sure was sweet — and a great example of paying it forward. Ruby Tuesday's waitress Sarah Hoidahl, then a 22-year-old single mom, got a surprise from Ellen DeGeneres in October 2013 after Ellen found out Sarah had paid for a couple of underpaid National Guards' lunches. They'd posted the New Hampshire waitress' note to them on Facebook and it went viral. In return, Ellen gifted Sarah a new Insignia TV and a check for $10,000.
