Drake is playing cupid this Valentine's Day and stealing hearts left and right. 

 

The rapper has been donating tons of money to various people, families, and schools in Miami as of late, and it continued Wednesday after the 31-year-old gifted someone special a $10,000 shopping spree. 

Last 3 days were the best I have had in a very long time...theres nothing like seeing people experience a joyful moment when you can tell they need it the most.

Housekeeper Odelie Paret, who is a mother-of-five, commutes four hours on two buses daily to get to her job at Miami Beach where she cleans 14 rooms throughout her shift to support her big family, according to the Miami Herald. 

 

Drake reportedly read her story in the Miami Herald and teamed up with Pittsburgh Steelers player and Miami native Antonio Brown to give her a day of pampering, eating and a luxurious shopping experience. 

 

After dinner, a car picked Paret and a friend up and took them to Brickell City Centre, where they waited until the shopping center closed. It was there, standing in front of Saks Fifth Avenue, that Drake met with her. 

 

Paret ended up walking out with a $2,000 Valentino purse, four perfumes, a $6,000 18-karat gold necklace with diamonds and an $800 pair of flats, which she picked out to wear for church.

 

"I have to go to church [I'm not getting] $600 shoes without a strap in the back and flowers," Paret told the Miami Herald. "I thank [Drake] so much."

 

Paret's shopping experience will also be part of the upcoming music video.
