Kylie and mother Kris Jenner have started the process of distributing boxes of hand sanitizers to medical centers and healthcare workers across southern California. The state currently has 21,794 positive coronavirus cases at this writing. Three hundred and seven have recovered and there have been 651 deaths.
Through the 22-year-old billionaire’s skincare brand Kylie Skin and its major investor, Coty, the reality stars of Keeping Up with the Kardashians were able to produce thousands of bottles of antibacterial gel for healthcare workers. Each bottle bears the message, “Dedicated to first responders working to support our communities.” Bottles were seen being donated to the West Hills Hospital in Los Angeles on Friday.
Photos are emerging of the truckloads of the bottles being delivered to people on the frontline fighting COVID-19. One of Jenner’s personal physicians showed off the bottle and thanked the generous reality star for her help
One of Kylie’s personal physicians, Dr. Thaïs Aliabadi, revealed on Saturday that Kylie Skin had just donated 6,000 pounds of the bottles to be distributed to different hospitals.
Kylie has been steadily aiding coronavirus relief efforts. In March, she pledged $1 million to buy personal protective equipment for first responders. She also donated PPE to healthcare workers at Los Angeles County/USC Medical Center.
As the pandemic went into full swing last month, the U.S. Surgeon General Dr. Jerome Adams called upon Kylie to do her part and encourage young people to take the virus seriously. She responded to Adams’ request directly by discussing social distancing and self-quarantining on her Instagram.
