Dixon is a single mother that put herself through school and struggling to pay back student loans. DeGeneres told her to come up to the stage and join the cast. Dixon works at a nonprofit and helps assist seniors and often feeds the homeless. Dixon said, “I’m a single mom, and it’s been difficult. As much as I like to give back, I don’t have much to give, but I try to volunteer. I always know that there’s someone who’s worse off than I am….For me and my daughter, you know, as long as our bellies are full and I have a roof over my head, it’s been just amazing.”
Dixon’s mother came out and DeGeneres revealed that the entire time it was a surprise. She immediately began to cry as Kunis gave her $25,000 for working so hard and another $25,000 was given to her by Bell. She was overwhelmed and then Hahn told her to buy some gifts and gave her $25,000. DeGeneres didn’t like that everyone had gifts and mentioned she had to do it to and gave her $25,000. We are so happy Ayesha Dixon can take a bit of the load off of her plate.
