VIRGINIA BEACH, Virginia – A Virginia Beach woman who helps others in need and faces tough times herself was recently surprised by Ellen DeGeneres.
Rickkita Taylor got the ultimate surprise on Friday’s “Ellen DeGeneres Show”.
Taylor was fired at the start of the pandemic, and although she is struggling financially herself, she supports her nonprofit Sisters Healing Sisters to help others in need.
She told Ellen why she decided to start a non-profit organization and how she empowered and educated women in need.
After hearing Taylor’s dedication to helping others, Ellen saved the surprises by giving her $ 10,000 for Sisters Healing Sisters and an additional $ 10,000 for her family, thanks to Shutterfly.
Catch Ellen weekdays at 3 p.m. on WTVR CBS 6 followed by CBS 6 News at 4 p.m.
