Ellen I was watching your show & you said if we knew of someone in need to let you know.
A friend of me and my wife (Vicki ) , Marlene Steele is her name. Marlene has been a friend for over 20 years. she lost her husband Ray in 2009 after a long battle with heart problems and a heart transplant.
Since then she lost her job where shewas making a good living and paying off past medical bills.
She has been unable to find work since. and if that isn't enough her son didn't have a job and his wife reacently had a new born baby their second child. They had no where to live so Marlene moved them in her home and is now feeding four others. She has depleted her retirement\ her savings and is now two months behind on house payments. Getting notices for pending evection. She is trying to file for bankruptsy but the Lawyers want money for that something shedos'nt have. However she has made it till now useing her retirement money, and selling her artwork , She is a One Stroke Artist ( Donna Dueberry certified Instructor ) she also with the help of me and my wife sells glassware & other painted articals at various festivals around our area making on average a couple two three hundred dollars each show. Her artwork is absoutly beautiful. She sells on Facebook and has a site on Etsy. She has a webpage Artistic expressons By Marlene. You can go to any of these to view her work. Marlene's dream is to open un a shop of her own where she can sell her artwork, teach classes to other woodbe artist and just make enough money to keep her house and make a living. The past four years has been very hard for her and it just breaks my heart to see someone so derserving that refuses to give up get into this situation. So please look at her Facebook and Etsy , also her website see if maybe you could have a sugestion of how she can get going, she just needs someone to help a little, I am sure she could take it from there.
Thank you for reviewing my letter. May God Bless - Dave & Vicki Dayton Ohio

This is Jenn Allison - EXE Media Group. World renowned hip hop artist, activist, author & actor, Emmanuel Jal, is starring in "The Good Lie" with Reese Witherspoon! Will you feature Jal? His new album is See Me Mama.
"The Good Lie" is about a young refugee of the Sudanese Civil War who wins a lottery for relocation to the United States with three other lost boys. Encountering the modern world for the first time, they develop an unlikely friendship with a brash American woman (Reese Witherspoon) assigned to help them, but the young men struggle to adjust to this new life and feelings of guilt about the brother left behind.
In the war-torn region of Southern Sudan, Emmanuel Jal was born into the life of a child solider. Through unbelievable struggles, Emmanuel managed to survive. He was rescued & adopted by a British aid worker, Emma McCune. Jal emerge as a world-famous recording artist with a hit record under his belt. He is directly supported by Alicia Keys, Peter Gabriel, George Clooney, Richard Branson, Nelson Madela, Annie Lennox, DMC, Russell Simmons & many more people worldwide! Called an artist "with the potential of a young Bob Marley" by Peter Gabriel, he has performed at Live 8 and Nelson Mandela's 90th b-day concert. His music can be heard in major motion pictures, TV, and he's been featured in major outlets like TIME, USA Today, NPR, CNN, MTV & the BBC. Emmanual is also a spokesperson for Amnesty International and Oxfam and created the charitable foundation, Gua Africa.

We Want Peace (WWP), spearheaded by Emmanuel Jal, beginning in December 2010, has a simple goal: To raise awareness on the fundamental principles of justice, equality, unification and conflict prevention, through the power of music, worldwide. In dedication to Southern Sudan's historic referendum, Emmanuel released "We Want Peace" what has become the worldwide music hit. The uptempo feel good classic brings a sense of appreciation and entertainment to the importance of peace and security.
Emmanuel Jal has won worldwide acclaim for his unique style of hip hop with its message of peace and reconciliation born out of his experiences as a child soldier in Sudan. His music can be heard alongside Coldplay, Gorillaz, and Radiohead on the fundraising "War Child Help a Day in the Life" album, as well as in three ER episodes, the National Geographic documentary God Grew Tired of Us, and in the feature film Blood Diamond starring Leonardo DiCaprio. Emmanuel spoke at TED Global, rang the bell at the NY Stock Exchange, and released his autobiography "War Child" all in 2009.
Despite his accomplishments in music, Jal's biggest passion is for Gua Africa. Besides building schools, the nonprofit provides scholarships for Sudanese war survivors in refugee camps, and sponsors education for children in the most deprived slum areas in Nairobi. For almost a year now, Jal has been eating one meal a day in his campaign to build a school in Leer, Southern Sudan, where Emma McCune is resting. The Gua Africa mission is to work with individuals, families and communities to help them overcome the effects of war & poverty. His projects are based in both Sudan and Kenya with a focus on providing education to children & young adults who would otherwise be denied this opportunity.
This Saturday, Emmanuel Jal will be receiving a Humanitarian Award in Dallas, TX from the Hunt Institute, featured in allAfrica. He is receiving $25,000 which will all be donated to the charity he founded, GUA Africa, to help build Emma Academy in his hometown of Leer, South Sudan.
Emmanuel Jal is doing a 100 School High Tour in the USA to share his experiences, personal message for peace in a quest to promote social & emotional learning amongst young people as they become active, global citizens. He's starting in Los Angeles in October.
Jal's current album release is "See Me Mama" -iTunes.

Hi Ellen I love your show, I just wanted a chance to meet my favorite band in the world! One Direction, I would like to thank them for these incredible songs they sing! They helped me throughout rough times in my life. I use to cut myself and I recently cut myself for some issues going on at home, but when I started to listen to One Direction their songs helped me a lot! I just wanted a chance to thank them in person! Knowing they can never have a proper conversation with fans, and also I live in a small town in California I know that I may never thank them. One day I was feeling empty inside and felt alone I felt pain and I wanted to end my life,that was until moments by One Direction started playing and I decided not to. Their songs really speak to me and I'm very grateful for them because their music was all I had. My parents actually never found out until the last time I cut myself they started making me attend therapy which is working out, but I just need a chance to thank them in person! If you could please make it happen then I would be very happy and grateful! Thank you so much Ellen!
