Ashton Kutcher decided to give the greatest gift of all, a generous donation of four million dollars to help Ellen DeGeneres save animals in the wildlife. He surprised the TV host on her show alongside Hollywood manager, Guy Oseary. Kutcher has been looking for technical companies to invest in and working with a platform for transferring money called Ripple. He explained Ripple’s ethical motive in giving back to people involved in doing good things for the world. And Ellen was certainly number one on Kutcher’s list.
According to E! News, Ashton gave a heartfelt speech about Ellen’s ways of doing things for others, but never asking for anything in return. Right now, the TV star is planning a trip to Africa to start building The Ellen DeGeneres Campus of the Dian Fossey Gorilla Fund with goals of saving the mountain gorillas.
She was pleasantly shocked when Ashton Kutcher finally revealed the surprise. Instead of presenting a big, obnoxious check, Kutcher simply opened the app, prompting Ellen to push the button that would transfer the money into her account right away. Ellen was all smiles and jokes as she savored the big moment, saying, “I’d like to push it real good.”
