Ellen sent audience member Lauren outside at the beginning of the show to sell lemonade. The profits were supposed to go to Oklahoma Tornado Relief. At the end of the hour, Lauren reported that she made $250.

A few people on the street gave Lauren $20 for each glass. Ellen also kicked in $1,000. But the big surprise was that Wells Fargo bought the rest of the lemonade with a $100,000 donation to Wells Fargo.

As a reward for working the lemonade stand, Ellen invited Lauren back for a 12 Days of Giveaways show in December 2013. That will be a lot of fun for her!
