During Thursday night on the Ellen DeGeneres Show, Kylie Jenner surprised teacher Mireya Almonte and her daughter Ashley Almonte with $100,000 each to help them financially. Mireya is a teacher at Title 1 school in the South Bronx, where Kylie’s daughter (Stormi) attends. Mireya has worked there for nearly twenty years and often donates her own money to help her students and says she would nearly do anything for them. Ashley Almonte, Mierya’s daughter, recently dropped out of college to help support her mother at home.

Kylie explained to both Mireya and Ashley, “I want you to be able to pay off your student loans. I want you to be able to go back to college.” In addition to the $200,000 Kylie is donating to the mom and daughter, she has also decided to donate $50,000 to Mireya’s school to help buy all new equipment for the school and students who attend.
