The tweet was met with a lot of praise and gratitude from tweeps, who appreciated the thoughtfulness behind the benevolent action. A lot of fans even went as far as offering full-length prayers.

The lipstick mogul and her momager will allegedly be donating sanitizers to hospitals across southern California.

According to Fox News, the money used to finance the purchase of the masks and equipment came from a fund meant for a canceled Emmy Award season event.

Several other high profile celebrities have made similar donations — famous movie star, Arnold Schwarzenegger has reportedly given over a million worth of medical masks and gear to the medical staff.

Dolly Parton, as well, pledged $1million to the Vanderbilt University Medical Center located in Nashville, Tennessee, as they attempt to do research that will guarantee a cure for the virus.
