Kylie Jenner Donates $1Million To Help Coronavirus First Responders
Kylie Jenner is putting her billion dollars to good use. The 22-year-old donated $1 million to first responders amid the spread of the coronavirus in the U.S.
Her OB-GYN Dr. Thais Aliabadi took to Instagram to thank her for her generous donation.
“I am speechless, my eyes are filled with tears of joy and my heart is overwhelmed with gratitude. I made a wish to the Universe to gather protective masks for our brave healthcare workers and today my dream came true. One of my patients, a beautiful Living Angel just donated $1,000,000 to help us buy hundreds of thousands of masks, face shields, and other protective gear which we will have delivered directly to our first responders, as too many masks at hospitals are disappearing before making their way onto the faces of our front line heroes. I have never felt more blessed to be a doctor, as helping our brave ER and ICU workers feels just as gratifying as helping my own patients.”
She ended with,
“From the bottom of our hearts, THANK YOU @kyliejenner. You are my hero. This generous donation will help save many precious lives. Our world is a better place with you in it. I love you so much. Thank you X a million….”
Kylie Jenner has already been vocal about helping stop the spread of the coronavirus. She responded to U.S. Surgeon General Jamal Adams’ plea to use her platform to urge younger people to practice social distancing.
