Paris Hilton may have momentarily shown that she isn’t a total waste of space. That’s good - everyone needs a break once in a while.
The Childrens Hospital Los Angeles announced the One Night In Paris star “has made an ‘extremely generous’ donation toward the construction of a new 460,000 square-foot medical tower at the downtown facility.” This contribution will go towards the building of a double-patient room in the Childrens Center for Cancer and Blood Diseases (opening in 2010) into what will probably look like a spa for kids who deserve it.
Paris told E!:
"I am so happy and fortunate to announce my support for Childrens Hospital Los Angeles," Hilton said in a statement. "The children I have met through my [involvement] at Childrens Hospital have truly touched my heart."
And according to E!:
The 27-year-old celebutante started volunteering at the hospital following her release from jail after serving 23 days for DUI. Proceeds from the August launch of her eponymous clothing line at the West Hollywood boutique Kitson also went to the kids, some of whom were at the party to fete the arrival of Hilton's collection of relatively affordable casual wear.
Bravo, Paris Hilton! This maybe your best act yet!
