Paris Hilton

Who Wants to be

... a Slumdog Hundredaire?!!?!

9/26/2011 4:05 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Paris Hilton made a begger's life in Mumbai a few hours ago -- stopping her SUV to hand a $100 bill to a poor woman who was carrying a baby ... and then dropping more than $2,000 in cash on other poor people in the area.

According to local Indian reports, the woman immediately began asking photogs if anyone could break it into smaller bills -- we're guessing it's not very safe to walk around the slums with that much cash.

And get this -- sources close to Paris tell TMZ ... after the $100 incident, Paris was so emotional about the poverty situation in India, she decided to give away all of the cash she was carrying on her at the time to other poor people in the area ... more than $2,000 in total.

Paris -- who's in India to launch some new Paris Hilton stores -- later tweeted about the incident .... saying, "India is beautiful, but some parts are very poverty stricken. Broke my heart to see babies sleeping on the streets."

is beautiful, but some parts are very poverty stricken. Broke my heart to see babies sleeping on the streets :(

That was an awesome job by Paris. God saw what she did and He knows her heart. Her critics can just go ahead and take a seat. What have you done for your fellow man?

can't we just appreciate a act of positivity and leave it at that? somebody helped people in desperate need of help and that's awesome. end of story. whether it is a publicity stunt or not, there is so much hate in the world that we should appreciate all the positive news we can get and be grateful for random acts of kindness.

For all the BS and garbage usually associated with Paris, at least she did something good this time (photogs or not). She didnt have to go to India to find babies sleeping in the street..just take a ride right here in LA !!! Paris why dont you get out more and hand out money to the locals in your own country (way more photogs)

Well, of course would have been better if not on camera but glad to see someone helping people in this country for a change.

I know others will disagree but I think Paris at least has empathy for others. She may be a little diva, but I don't think she's oblivious to reality. Compared with other celebrities of her caliber, she is an angel.

Oh Paris. If you were really charitable, you would release another sex tape. That way, the whole world could enjoy the fruits of your charity.
