Kylie Jenner has been at the center of the coronavirus pandemic conversations for a couple of weeks now, thanks not only to her ridiculous amount of wealth, i.e., she's a billionaire, but also because the United States Surgeon General, Jerome Adams, asked her and other social media influencers to try and connect with Generation Z in an attempt to convey just how serious the COVID-19 outbreak is. Adams also wanted Jenner so explain why people should be 'self-quarantining' and practicing 'social distancing'. Well, now, she's gotten herself even more involved.

On Wednesday, Jenner made one of the most generous moves someone could during this healthcare crisis. The makeup mogul donated $1,000,000 to her OBGYN, who plans to use the money to help purchase masks and other protective gear for healthcare workers who are currently on the front lines of the pandemic.

After making the massive donation, her doctor took to Instagram to express just how happy she was that Jenner had helped contribute to the fight against the coronavirus. She also explained exactly where the money would be going.

"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," Dr. Thais Aliabadi posted to her Instagram account, alongside a picture of herself and Jenner holding her daughter, Stormi.

Aliabadi then went on to share that the money would be used to purchase masks, face shields, and other protective equipment for first responders and healthcare workers in hospitals.

"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," Aliabadi continued in her Instagram post.

"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 @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...," Aliabadi concluded her post. Later in the day, a source close to Jenner confirmed to Page Six that she had, in fact, made the donation. "I can confirm that she did make the donation," the insider said to the outlet.

Jenner, herself, later responded to the 'thank you' post replying her with own thanks. "I love you! and thank YOU for all the love and care you put into everything that you do! You’re an angel on earth."
