A BRITISH multi-millionaire went on an incredible Christmas day giving spree, handing out astonishing presents to strangers.
Yesterday, Umar Kaman, the Chief Executive of the fashion house PrettyLittleThing, urged social media users to apply the #PrettyLittleWishes hashtag with their festive wish so that he could reward those he felt needed help the most.
What he gave out was stunning example of good-hearted will and included clearing people’s debts, holiday giveaways and money for cancer treatments – and it’s fair to say people were left stunned.
He cleared one student’s £900 overdraft so she could stop worrying and start focusing on her studies. He also offered to donate £1000 to a person whose aunt was recently diagnosed with cancer and needed specialist treatment. Another user was desperate for a new car, with Kamani gifting her a limited edition Fiat.
He also gave money to a group of friends to be able to go away on a Home Alone-style holiday to New York, and he sent a hospital patient a £500 voucher to help her buy some loungewear while she focused on getting better. He even sent a single mum some money so she could spoil her little one over Christmas.
Another person was gifted money for a wedding dress after waiting for a kidney transplant, while another was awarded £400 to take her mum on a dream holiday
This was not the first time the fashion mogul has been generous, as earlier this month he amazed social media by promising to pay off somebody’s entire overdraft and touched hearts by organising a weekend-long trip to Disneyland Paris for a 4-year-old boy battling leukaemia.
Umar Kamani, 31, is originally from Manchester and co-founded PrettyLittleThing with his brother Adam in 2012. The Kamani brothers were inspired to start their business after witnessing the success of their father’s Boohoo.com fashion firm.
