While at a Los Angeles nightclub a few weeks ago reality star Paris Hilton had the chance to meet one special and lucky fan. In early July Paris met Mike Oliveri who suffers from muscular dystrophy. Paris was so touched by his story and Mike’s struggles that she cut her new friend a check for $5000 to help him pay for his ongoing medical bills.
Oliveri was so thankful for what the successful businesswomen/socialite did that he thanked her profusely in a video he posted on his personal website:
“I met her about a week-and-a-half ago… I just thought she was a very sweet person… We became friends and… she just sent me $5,000 and saved my life, literally…”
Paris, the magnitude of appreciation I have for what you did, you didn’t have to do that. Just our friendship alone is worth more than you could ever imagine. Having somebody to talk to everyday, and somebody that understands, and somebody that cares, I really appreciate what you did and I hope the whole world understands what an amazing person you are. Words cannot express how I feel. I just want to say, Paris, I love you, thank you so much.
Paris Hilton is renowned for her generosity and kind heart. Despite being one of the most accomplished celebs in the world she never forgets that there are less fortunate people and is always willing to help. We are reminded that when Paris visited India to launch her fashion brand she encountered some heartbreaking poverty in Mumbai. Paris felt so badly for these poor people that she simply decided to give away all of the cash she was carrying at the time to needy people in the neighborhood – which was more than $2,000 in total.
It is good to see people like Paris who have made the most of their opportunities stop to help and empathize with the less fortunate.
