It became known that 23-year-old Kylie Jenner donated $ 500,000 to Vanderbilt Children’s Hospital in Nashville.
The hospital needed funds to build a special recreation area for young patients with cancer. Now, thanks in part to Kylie’s large investment, the institution has a cosy room with a TV, game consoles, a place for meditation, and a space for games and socializing.
Jenner’s donation was inspired by the story of her longtime friend, 27-year-old musician Harry Hudson, who was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s lymphoma eight years ago.
“Kylie has always supported me, and together we wanted to help young people who are struggling with this disease. I am very grateful to her for the friendship and the influence that she had on my life and the path to recovery, “ commented Harry on Kylie’s generosity.
Now Jenner certainly no one dares to accuse of greed. Last month, Kylie sparked users’ ire by donating $ 5,000 to treat a makeup artist she knew who had an accident. True, the victim’s family initially requested 10 thousand dollars, and Kylie contributed half of the amount. But few people noticed this because after Kylie’s help and the spread of the makeup artist’s story on social networks, the number of donations rose sharply to 100 thousand. The final amount on the fundraising page was changed from 10 to 120 thousand dollars.
