Dani's $20,000 gift came just when the Love Kitchen needed it most, Helen says. "People are losing their jobs and things like that. And the requests were growing," she says. "We didn't have to turn anybody away that needed food."
Dani says she hopes Secret Millionaire will light a spark in viewers to help their own neighbors. "What they must do is get off the couch and use what they have," she says. "You don't have to have a lot of money to be able to help people that are in need. I'm so passionate about people being mobilized to go and help other people. They need smiles, they need hugs, they need care, they need time. And now, all that doesn't cost any money."
