Katt Williams to Wheelchair Fan:

HERE'S $1,000 CASH

... Now Feel Better

Katt Williams gave $1,000 in CASH (and a free signed note) to a wheelchair-bound woman following a recent performance ... after learning she's in bad need of a kidney transplant, TMZ has learned. 

The comic had just wrapped a show in Boston on Sunday when a member of his security team noticed the woman crying in the audience.

The woman insisted she was leaking "tears of joy" ... after laughing for the first time since doctors told her she's in desperate need of a new kidney.

The security team brought the woman backstage to meet with Katt -- and he was so moved by her story, he excused himself from the room ... only to reappear moments later with a folded up sheet of paper.

When the woman opened up the bindle, she was shocked to find ten 100 DOLLAR BILLS ... along with a note that read, "God never leaves."

Then came more tears of joy.

TMZ spoke to the woman who says the gift was an "awesome surprise" ... because, at first, she thought Katt's package was full of weed.

Given his history, ya can't really blame her.

She's still at least $100K short of a kidney transplant (assuming she even needs one), but she's got plenty of money for a weed and crack bender. I'm guessing that she already invested the $1K in the weed and crack with a little Night Train wine on the side.

She should move to Chicago. Kidneys out there is like hot potatoes with all those black folks dropping like flies. Wait time is like 1 week.

Wow that was really admirable of him to do that cause he's been doing a lot of shady things and to do this it shows a different side of him..

So, maybe Kanye West might follow suit & start being a humanitarian as well? Or should I just stop holding my breath?

Christmas is an exciting time for little girls and boys, who have been waiting for a year to receive their great presents that they always wish to get. However, the upcoming Christmas holiday is a hard task for the parents to choose a toy for their children.

He may often catch a bad rep, but he is an amazing person. I have co-worker who works two jobs with no help to support her family of four. Her second oldest needs surgery and my co-worker is busting her butt saving every bit she can to cover the medical expenses. He tipped her $200 and told her "I hope your day gets better". I thought that was amazing and he should be recognized for it, he doesn't know how much that helped!
