When De Rossi gives the birthday surprise Ellen burst into tears and they give each other a cozy hug. De Rossi told it’s your special day and the gift should be special and it has to represent what you really love and care about.
DeGeneres special gift was “she opened the Ellen DeGeneres Campus of the Dian Fossey Gorilla Fund”. Dian Fossey is DeGeneres animal activist hero and lately, she is a legendary primatologist working in the research to conserve Rwanda mountain gorillas.
The permanent way to protect wild gorillas was a surprisingly thoughtful gift. The part 2 that support world endangered species is The Ellen DeGeneres Wildlife Fund.
I feel so loved. Thanks to everyone who made my 60th birthday so special. ?? https://t.co/NSEhnmlY4j
