Kylie Jenner isn’t just another celeb reality star. Even though the cosmetics queen/billionaire takes lavish vaycays and has a garage filled with cars that cost more than most of our homes, she’s also a generous mama mogul.
Jenner recently appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, surprising Ashley Almonte and her mother Mireya Almonte (an NYC public school teacher) with a gift neither woman could believe—and it all started with a trip to Kylie Cosmetics’ headquarters!
Ashley, a 22-year-old college student, recently had to drop out of school to help financially support her mother. After learning about this, Jenner donated $100,000, to both mother and daughter (that’s $200,000 total!), to help ease the family’s financial issues. Jenner told Ashley, “I want you to be able to pay off your student loans.” She also added, “I want you to be able to go back to college.”
The generosity didn’t end there. Jenner also donated $50,000 to Mireya’s school, New York’s P.S. 35. Mireya told Jenner, and Ellen’s viewers, “We service children that come from shelters, from homeless situations. We’re like a family at P.S. 35.” She continued, “We don’t only teach them academically, we also embrace them, we encourage them, we help the parents too if they’re going through difficult situations. And most of the money comes from our pockets because we don’t get enough funding for this.”
