    On yesterday's episode of The Ellen DeGeneres Show, Ellen DeGeneres surprised her favorite do-gooder waitress with a brand-new car!

    It all started the other week when DeGeneres had Sarah Hoidahl, a waitress at Ruby Tuesday in Concord, New Hampshire, on her show because she generously bought a meal for two furloughed officers during the government shutdown.

    Flash forward to this week. The talk show host called up Hoidahl at her work to surprise her with a big gift in honor of her charitable ways!

    "Hey Sarah, it's Ellen," DeGeneres said. "I'm just checking in. What ya doing?"

    "Hi! Oh my god, is it really you?" Hoidahl exclaimed before adding, "It's been crazy but it's been so much fun. Oh my god, I can't believe I'm talking to you."

    Hoidahl goes on to gush about all the support she's gotten from her work and all the well wishes people from all over the world have sent her in the wake of her good deed. DeGeneres continued, "We gave you a $10,000 tip and I heard a lot of that is going to go towards, or some of it is going to go towards a car that you and your mom share, right?"

    DeGeneres went on to surprise a sobbing and very happy Hoidahl with the keys to a brand new 2014 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport! Watch the heartwarming video for yourself.
