As if anyone needed another reason to love Mindy Kaling, she is giving away $40,000 to 40 different charities in celebration of her 40th birthday.
“I’m so grateful to have my wonderful, peaceful life w/ my daughter Katherine,” the actress tweeted. “How lucky am I to turn 40? I would love to express my gratitude by donating $1000 to 40 different charitable orgs that help others. Pls suggest some! I will kick it off by giving $1000 to @RAICESTEXAS!”
Needless to say, Kaling got lots of response, 6,500 and counting.
As she selected the charities from the lengthy list she tweeted out the lucky recipients.
Kaling previously told Us that she hopes to inspire her daughter with her work ethic. “If I can set that example for her to work hard like I did, I think I’d be happy,” Kaling said. “I work incredibly hard. It’s like, work hard, play hard. I definitely work more hard than I play hard. And so I think that’s not bad. I think that I have never gotten anything easily and that’s OK!”
