Socialite PARIS HILTON is keeping to her post-prison promises by helping the
less fortunate – she has made an “extremely generous” donation towards the
construction of a children’s hospital in Los Angeles.
The star has put an undisclosed amount of her own money to help with the
building of a new wing of the Children’s Hospital Los Angeles, according to
Hilton made a promise to become a better person after spending 23 days in
jail last year following probation violations on alcohol related reckless
driving charges – claiming she wanted “to help raise money for kids and for
breast cancer and multiple sclerosis”.
The money donated by the hotel heiress will go towards a Children’s Center
for Cancer and Blood Diseases and will open in 2010.
The blonde beauty comes from a family of charitable folk – her grandfather
William Barron Hilton was named as America’s top charity donor of the past year
after handing out $1.2 billion (#600 million) to charity via the Conrad N.
Hilton Foundation in 2007.
