Paris Hilton was infamously dubbed the celebrity that became famous by simply doing nothing, but after a few years in the limelight, the hotel heiress hasn't let her fame go to waste.

Paris Hilton is your Connector of the Day.

Since breaking out as a target for photographers and magazine editors, the 29-year-old American has already had the opportunity to star in her very own television series, create her own line of perfume and even record an album.

Part of the famed family that founded Hilton hotels, Paris has been no stranger to the spotlight.

At an early age, Paris was friends with socialites including Nicole Richie and Kim Kardashian - one of which she later starred in a reality show called "The Simple Life."

Paris has also had the opportunity to star in films including "House of Wax" and "The Hilz".

But while Paris has been a well-known personality on the celebrity circuit, she has shifted her focus from the red carpe to working with charitable organizations.

Most recently, Paris has teamed up with a charity called "Songs for Soldiers" which aims to provide every American service member in active duty in Afghanistan or Iraq, with a MP3 music player.

Paris was named the celebrity ambassador for the organization and said that once the goal is reached that she hopes to be part of a trip overseas to deliver the music players.

Each player will be pre-loaded with a number of songs from artists that have donated their music.
