Ashton Kutcher's Surprise Donation to Ellen May 2018

Watch Ellen Get Choked Up by Ashton Kutcher's Heartfelt Surprise

For her 60th birthday, Ellen DeGeneres got a "really special" gift from her wife: Portia de Rossi surprised Ellen by establishing The Ellen DeGeneres Campus of the Dian Fossey Gorilla Fund in Rwanda and The Ellen DeGeneres Wildlife Fund. Before Ellen and Portia head to Rwanda, Ashton Kutcher and his business partner, Guy Oseary, stopped by The Ellen DeGeneres Show to talk about their new investment, Ripple, an app that "provides one frictionless experience to send money globally," according to their website.

What Ellen didn't realize was that the real reason Ashton brought it up was because of the $4 million donation he and Guy were giving her on behalf of Ripple for The Ellen DeGeneres Wildlife Fund. Watch Ellen's emotional reaction in the video above.
