Zach’s newest mission (but loooong-time dream) has been to meet the awesome, funny, generous Ellen Degeneres! Ellen has been a big inspiration to Zach for many reasons – but mostly for how funny and how kind she is. We love watching her show and seeing all the goofy things she does with her guests (we REALLY love her new show Game of Games! P.S. She’s looking for new contestants – apply here!).
Zach believes that he could learn quite a bit from meeting her – he wants to grow up to be just as generous – all the while remaining humble and happy to see others succeed or feel good.
Ellen is the topic of many conversations around here – which is great for us as parents. We’re always trying to find ways to express how we feel about community involvement, giving when we already have so much ourselves, and noticing when something needs to change in our communities. We often tell Zach that we might not have a lot of money to donate or give, we have TIME to share to make things better. So, we shall see what happens with this dream of Zach’s! If you happen to come across any of Zach’s tweets, Instagram posts or Facebook posts, please feel free to share and tag @TheEllenShow!
We decided to invite Ellen along on some of Zach’s journey – she’s a GREAT sport!
