Kylie Jenner Donates $1 Million To Doctors Fighting Coronavirus
22-year-old billionaire and “Keeping Up With The Kardashians” star Kylie Jenner has donated $1 million to help frontline doctors amid coronavirus.
The makeup mogul instructed for the money to be used to buy more masks and protective gear for medics.
Jenner who is the world’s youngest billionaire is one of the many celebrities who have been encouraging others to self-isolate as she is currently doing with her daughter Stormi.
Jenner’s generous donation is coming on the heels of her complaining about boredom in her $12 million mansion.
“Missing social time … the faster we stay inside the faster we can get back to it.. I hope everyone is taking social distancing serious ??” she wrote.
Thanking Jenner for the donation, the doctor who delivered Stormi thanked Kylie saying:
“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.”
“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. From the bottom of our hearts, THANK YOU Kylie Jenner. 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.”
With over 167 million followers on Instagram, Kylie was recently urged by the Surgeon General in the United States to reach out to her fans to help stem the coronavirus spread among millennials.
Obliging the request, Kylie was quick to key into her influence as she took to her Instastories to urge her fans to self-isolate and stay at home until further notice.
“Hey guys. Happy self-quarantine! I know I’ve already been doing my daily reminders about how important it is right now to practice social distancing and self-quarantine.
“I’m going on my ninth day. The coronavirus is a real thing.”
“I listened to the Surgeon General this morning and even though I’ve already been doing my daily reminders, he definitely encouraged me to come on here and talk to you guys so you can see me and hear me.”
“Practice social distancing, self-quarantine.”
