Cape Town – Ellen DeGeneres was left speechless and in tears after Ashton Kutcher surprised her with a massive donation to The Ellen DeGeneres Wildlife Fund.

The actor turned tech business investor was joined by his business partner and musician manager, Guy Oseary during an episode of The Ellen Show to share some exciting news.

Setting Ellen up for the surprise, Ashton explained that he and Guy found a company called Ripple that they are planning on investing in.

“Ripple is basically a platform which allows people to transfer money from bank account to bank account, person to person really securely, really simply, really quickly,” Ashton explained.

The 40-year-old goes on to explain that Ripple highly regards themselves as an ethical company and pride themselves on giving portions of their platform to people who are doing good.

Enter Ellen, who, as Ashton points out, is always doing everything she can to give back and to help those in need.

Surprising the audience and Ellen alike, Ashton then reveals that he and Guy are giving her $4m on behalf of Ripple to help her with The Ellen DeGeneres Wildlife Fund’s first initiative, which is to build a permanent home for the Dian Fossey Gorilla Fund in Rwanda.
