The former adult film star has posted to her Instagram stories a receipt for a donation to the Lebanese Red Cross, and thanked them for their efforts.
Former adult film star Mia Khalifa has once again revealed the size of her generosity with a $20,000 donation to the Lebanese Red Cross.

Khalifa, who grew up in Lebanon but now lives in the US, posted a screenshot to her Instagram stories of a wire transfer for the value of $20,000. 

In the accompanying message she wrote, "@lebaneseredcross we see your efforts, we see you running from the top of Lebanon to the port help people and saving protestor’s lives. Thank you so much for everything you do."

She also called out Dr. Lily Wakim, a dental practitioner of Lebanese decent who hosts an Only Fans profile under the name 'The Sexy Dentist', to match the amount donated by her.

On one of Wakim’s Instagram stories, she asked her fans to send donations for the Lebanese Red Cross, while thanking Khalifa for her awareness efforts.

This is not the first time Khalifa has used her star power to raise money for Lebanon

Following the deadly 4 August blast, she auctioned off her infamous glasses, which she wore during her adult career, for over $100,000, with all proceeds being donated to victims of the explosion.

While her former career caused moral outrage among some sections of Lebanese society and resulted in a travel ban, her charitable actions have been applauded by many people in Lebanon.

During the anti-government protests that followed the port explosion, some claimed that Khalifa had done more for Lebanon than the ruling politicians.

One protester was seen raising a picture of the former porn star complete with the slogan "She is more honourable than all of you."
