The Ellen DeGeneres Show is one of the most inspiring and uplifting talk shows on television today. In a recent episode, Ellen proved why her show is so well known for bringing smiles to viewers’ faces by changing the life of one waitress. 

During the government shut down, Sarah was waiting on a group of furloughed workers and decided to cover their bill. She ended up leaving her long shift with only a few bucks–not even enough to cover her gas for the day. 

After hearing this story, Ellen just had to invite Sarah on show, and paid her kindness forward with a check for $10,000!

And the web is loving it! The clip has already garnered over 350,000 views since debuting before the weekend!
