Drake is on a roll when it comes to giving back. Not only did the “God’s Plan” entertainer donate recently gift fans $50,000 worth of groceries, but now the star has reportedly gifted a housekeeper and her friend to a day of pampering and a $10,000 shopping spree.

Essence reports that the “Started From The Bottom” musician decided to execute the good deed after reading a story about hotel housekeepers being forced to take long commutes after being pushed out of the city due to increases in rent.

It reportedly started with a phone call for Odelie Paret, who has worked at the Fontainbleau Hotel in Miami for more than 20 years. Someone had arranged for her to be treated to a massage, spa and dinner at the city’s StripSteak by Michael Mina. After enjoying her meal, Paret and her lucky friend who got to tag along, were then taken to the Brickell City Centre. After the mall closed the mother of five finally got to see who was the secret gifter, so to speak.

“I always just saw him on the TV. So I said, ‘Drake!’” Paret told the Miami Herald. “It made me happy. … I thank him so much.”

So sweet.
