Billionaire Kylie Jenner has donated $1 million to go toward coronavirus relief efforts, her doctor said Wednesday.
The reality TV star’s donation will go toward purchasing “hundreds of thousands of masks, face shields, and other protective gear” for first responders in Los Angeles-area hospitals.
Dr. Thais Aliabadi of Los Angeles’ Cedars Sinai Medical Center, who delivered Jenner’s daughter Stormi in February 2018, made the announcement on her Instagram page on Wednesday.
“I am speechless, my eyes are filled with tears of joy and my heart is overwhelmed with gratitude,” Aliabadi captioned a side-by-side photo of herself and Jenner. “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,” she wrote.
Jenner liked the post and confirmed the donation in the comments below, writing, “love you! and thank YOU for all the love and care you put into everything that you do! you’re an angel on earth.”
