  • With the events that have taken place recently,

  • it's sometimes hard to remember that we are

  • in the middle of a pandemic.

  • Luis Munoz-- he's a dad from Brooklyn

  • who had gone months without seeing his daughter because

  • of the pandemic.

  • And he missed her so much that he did the next best thing.

  • Luis waited outside of the hospital

  • where Jessica works with a giant sign that

  • said how much he loves her.

  • Please welcome Luis' daughter, Jessica.

  • Oh, my God, it's Ellen.

  • [LAUGHING]

  • Oh, my god.

  • It's actually Ellen.

  • It's actually Ellen.

  • Hi.

  • Hi.

  • How are you?

  • Oh, my gosh.

  • It's really you.

  • I'm OK.

  • How are you two?

  • I'm just a regular dad from Brooklyn, and you're Ellen.

  • Yep.

  • You're not just a regular dad.

  • You're a very special dad.

  • So you've been raising Jessica since she was four years old.

  • You've been a single dad.

  • And your daughter-- you raised a really wonderful daughter.

  • She is a hero.

  • Thank you.

  • Aw.

  • Look at that.

  • So what made you decide--

  • why did you say, I'm going to just go make a sign

  • and stand outside the hospital.

  • My daughter and me, we're extremely close.

  • And I haven't gone more than a week

  • without seeing her in 28 years.

  • And now 2 and 1/2, three months had almost passed already.

  • And I'm home taking care of my elderly parents,

  • and I haven't seen her.

  • And it just got to a point where I just felt

  • like my heart was breaking.

  • And that I just really missed her a lot.

  • And I wanted to just get a hug from her.

  • It's been too long.

  • So, Jessica, how did you see the sign?

  • And how did that feel when you saw it?

  • I was actually on my lunch break.

  • I had no idea he was coming.

  • And I was standing outside on the sidewalk just leaving

  • the building, and I see someone from far with a sign.

  • And I'm like, oh, that's weird.

  • Someone's walking this way with a sign.

  • And as the person comes closer, I see it's my father.

  • So at first, I was quite shocked.

  • A little bit embarrassed because my face

  • was on the ginormous sign.

  • But it was really sweet of him.

  • And it got a lot of attention fast.

  • And people were saying, oh, that's so sweet.

  • Jessica, so I know it's your dream

  • to go back to nursing school, but you can't afford it.

  • So the reason we wanted to talk to both of you

  • is because we want to help.

  • Green Dot offers banking and saving made simple.

  • And they want to put some cash back in your pocket.

  • So today, Jessica, they're going to give you $10,000.

  • What?

  • No way.

  • Oh, my gosh.

  • Thank you.

  • So Green Dot that is so amazing.

  • And, Luis, I have something for you, too.

  • They want to give you--

  • Oh, my god.

  • Wow.

  • Thank you for helping my daughter.

  • Thank you so much.

  • I can't believe that.

  • Got a sign.

  • Oh, my gosh.

  • $10,000, Luis.

  • Wow.

  • So that's $10,000 for each of you.

  • That's $20,000 from Green Dot.

  • Thank you so much.

  • Thank you so much for watching.

  • Oh, my god.

  • Thanks so much, everybody.

  • Thank you so much.

  • Thank you so, so much.

  • We appreciate it so much.

  • I can't believe that.

  • My pleasure.

  • Thank you both.

  • You guys are incredible.

  • So that is our show.

  • And at the end of every show, I used

  • to say be kind to one another.

  • I want to start from now on saying, thanks for watching

  • and listen to one another.

  • Bye.
