How to Ask Ellen DeGeneres For Money

Updated on July 9, 2012

"How to ask Ellen DeGeneres for Money" may seem like a tough question to answer since celebrities can seem so unreachable for the average person. However, it is entirely possible to get money from millionaires like Ellen if you know how to find the information you need, how to conduct yourself and if you know how to give yourself the exposure you need. This guide will take you through everything you need to know on how to get money from millionaires.

Help Me I Need Money Now! - How to Get Into Contact With Ellen DeGeneres

There are a heap of options for contacting celebrities such as Ellen in order to get help from them. Traditional methods such as phone and written mail work great but you also have the option of sending an email. Many celebs including Ellen are also on social networking sites like and Twitter too and this can be a great way to get into contact with them too. You can even try to get their attention indirectly though various media methods and by garnering the support of a good amount of their other fans.

Ask a Millionaire for Money - Where to Find Their Contact Details

If you plan on contacting Ellen or any other celeb then you are going to need their contact details first, obviously. While almost all celebrities keep their private details hidden from the public they will usually have a way for the public to send them emails, letters, or to call them. The easiest way to find such details is through the official contact pages on their websites. You have two options when it comes to Ellen DeGeneres; you can contact here through Warner Brothers, or you can contact her through her own personal website. Be aware that these details will go to her staff and not directly too here. Be polite and explain your story to the staff and you will maximize your chances of getting put through or having your message passed on.

"I want Money Now!" - The Wrong Way to Ask Ellen DeGeneres for Money

So when you eventually do get put through to Ellen's staff or when you send her a letter or an email there is a certain way you should carry yourself if you want to ensure the greatest possible chance of being helped. Simply saying "I want money now!" or even "help me I need money now" is not going to be enough, you need to be polite, professional and sincere. The biggest way that you can turn away someone that might otherwise help you is to demand that they do or to overburden them with your issues. Don't say that it is their obligation to hope you - it is not.

The Right Way to Ask a Millionaire for Money

You should begin by telling them your personal details (your name, where you are from), and then you should tell them briefly your story. Finally, you should conclude by telling them what they can do to help you. It's a good idea to give a couple of options such as, "we cannot afford to pay for schooling" could give you the choice of asking for money or for help getting school paid for. Sometimes people will be more willing to donate in a way that helps directly with a specific issue.

How to Get Money Donated to You through Exposure of Your Story - Other People Help Those in Need Too

Another alternative rather than to get money from millionaires is to appeal to the public yourself. If you can even manage to get enough public attention you can indirectly attract celebrities and other rich people to your cause. It can be very hard to get your story heard sometimes by simply telling one or two people. Instead you can get your story heard by hundreds, thousands or even millions of people to hear your story using internet media.

If you can make a touching appeal video or blog then you can get a lot of attention from the public, and, in turn, the media. Once you start to get the media's attention then it's only a matter of time before celebrities and other people who can donate to help you out start to take notice. The only prerequisite to this is that you have an attractive story or a touching one to share with the world (or that you are able to present your story in such a way).

      I've considered many times writing my sob story to some celebrity to see if they would spare a few bucks. Wish I was at oprah's show on her 50th birthday..
