Hey Ellen, I met this amazing young man who has a loving passion serving people ice cream. He wants his own ice cream shop which he started when he was 8 years from using a mini deep freezer. He is now 13 years old now and is known as the Lil Ice Cream Dude in Athens, Ga. @EllenShow check him out and get some of his ice cream especially the Unicorn! #allbeauwantsforchristmas

Hey Ellen! My friend Beau is the most mature, hardest working 13 year old you will ever meet. He even chooses to support two local philanthropies in Athens, Georgia through his business! He has been in the ice cream business for 6 years and all he wants for Christmas is his ice cream shop, Cool World (which is in the works and is already looking AMAZING!). Beau is truly the most amazing person I've had the honor of knowing. I can't speak more highly of the Lil Ice Cream Dude and his heart full of love for people and service!!!!! @TheEllenShow

Hey, Ellen - Beau is the future! All he wants for Christmas is his ice cream shop. The Lil' Ice Crean Dude has been serving up scoops for 6 years and he's only 13! He impressed when I met him a few weeks ago in person. He has the drive of a 40 year old in a 13 year old's body. Quite an impressive young man if you ask me @TheEllenShow. #allBeauwants4Christmas #LilicecreamDude

Many do not realize that Beau gives back to the community more than 20% of his profit which has exceeded $3,000 alone this year.   He began this amazing journey as a third grade elementary student at Athens Christian School where I was proud to be his Principal!

Hey Ellen, I met this enterprising young man in Atlanta, Georgia at a Lisa Nichols' event called Speak & Write.  He was the only person in the room under....let's say 21.  He took the stage, told his story, and preceded to serve ice cream to all the conference attendees.  A hard working young man with a vision and a servant heart. #allbeauwantsforchristmas @TheEllenShow  Vote for Beau!!

Hey, Ellen - We at Boo-le-Bark on the Boulevard host a Halloween costume dog parade in Athens, GA every year to help bring the community together (and raise funds for shelter pets). Beau is a fantastic supporter of our event - sponsoring it, walking in the parade (giving the kids a thrill to see a businessperson their age), and drawing a huge line of ice cream lovers (people and dogs) at his cart during the post-parade carnival. We Athenians love Beau, and we think you'll love him, too! Please support him any way you can - you won't regret it! Thank you!

Hey Ellen!! I know Beau through his amazing fundraising efforts for our philanthropies here at the University of Georgia. He always brings his ice cream cart to events and puts a smile on everyone's face! If he can achieve his goal of opening an ice cream shop, I know he will do amazing things and be very successful as all the students in this city love and support him. Good luck Lil Ice Cream Dude!! #allBeauwants4Christmas

Hey Ellen!  I am a teacher at Beau's school, and he is a great kid!  I love how hard he works at "building his ice cream empire," and all of this is done in his 'spare' time, when he's not at school.  His (and his family's) work ethic is amazing! @TheEllenShow you would love his passion. :) #allBeauwants4Christmas #littleicecreamdude

I met Beau recently and am blown away with this amazing young man.  Not only has he been the lil ice cream dude for 6 years, but he also gives back.  To see a young person do that, really is extraordinary.  If you just talk to him for a few minutes, you'll know right away Beau is up to BIG THINGS in this world, and he's only just begun!  #allBeauwants4Christmas

Ellen, Beau has a brilliant idea for his age to become his own business owner. He started out with a small freezer selling ice cream at the age of 8. Now, Beau dream has grown from a small freezer to a ice cream shop. We need your help make that part of the dream come true. #allBEAUwants4Christmas

I want to tell you about Beau Shell! This kid is amazing. I had the pleasure of going to the soft opening for his ice cream shop. He presented his business plan four times throughout today and he was impressive. His passion for ice cream is very apparent but his knowledge of business was what blew me away. If #allBEAUwants4Christmas is an ice cream shop, then we should all send a message to @ellendegeneres to let her know that this kid needs her help! Go Beau Go!

Hi Ellen! I had the great honor of meeting Beau Shell in November 2017 at a Lisa Nichols event. His maturity, business sense, and passion for ice cream totally blew me away! It’s rare to find young people so passionate and smart about money. This 13 year old entrepreneur has been in business for over 6 years, and he has big hopes and dreams to take his business to new levels. Please help @lilicecreamdude fund his dream of opening his first brick and mortar ice cream shop! He so deserves the opportunity ❤️

Hi Ellen! I have had the pleasure of knowing Lil Ice Cream dude since my freshman year of college at the University of Georgia. The first time I was served an ice cream from Beau, I thought to myself "wow, what a cute little kid." Now, three years and many ice creams later, the entire UGA community has seen Lil Ice Cream Dude become an even brighter and influential young person. Even to me as a young twenty-something, Beau is inspiring. He had a dream and he went after it, even at such a young age. This fall I happened to meet Beau's mom at the gym. I knew she looked familiar and it wasnt long before the two of us realized where we had met previously. Beau's mom accompanies him on his business outings-- he is only thirteen after all. Beau's mom told me about his idea to open up his own ice cream shop. The excitement in her voice and the proud look on her face was just a small indication of Beau's spirit and influence. Lil Ice Cream Dude is a unifying factor in Athens, Georgia. He spreads happiness and goodwill to each person he encounters. Frankly, I have never seen him not smiling. With his own shop, his influence could be much more widespread. Lil Ice Cream Dude has been giving to us for years and now it is time for us to give back to him! #allBEAUwants4christmas
