Ellen DeGeneres has outdone Oprah by surprising her audience with a gift of $1 million.

During Friday’s episode of The Ellen DeGeneres Show, DeGeneres explained she partnered with the cereal brand Cheerios to help spread kindness and achieve one million acts of goodwill. All of the members in her audience had done exactly that.

Kenya Hughes and John Hughes, for instance, used their own money to drive a U-Haul 800 miles and deliver supplies to those affected by Hurricane Harvey. Teacher Lori Gaines also donated her kidney to a mother of one of her students, and Dan McKernan quit his job to a open sanctuary for farm animals.

The host of The Ellen DeGeneres Show is still in celebration mode for her 60th birthday and continued the party by giving away the biggest prize ever on her show.
