Keeping Up With The Kardashians: Kim Kardashian Donates 10 Percent Of Earnings To Charity

January 28, 2011 01:00 PM by Paula_Kosowski

Kim Kardashian, of E!’s Keeping Up With The Kardashians fame, shocked viewers of “Piers Morgan Tonight” when she revealed she spent more than $100,000 on a watch. She’s making up for those expensive purchases. Kim reveals she donates 10 percent of her income to charity. More details on Kim’s contributions after the jump…

According to E! Online, “Keeping Up With The Kardashians” star Kim Kardashian isn’t only spending a lot on jewelry, she also gives 10 percent of her salary to charity.

“Whatever it is, I give 10 percent away to the church,” she tells E! Online. “Every year, absolutely.”

The website reports Kim didn’t reveal her salary, but did say she donates regularly to charity and will continue to do so. Kim told Piers Morgan she’s donated much more to charity than the price of the watch she purchased for $115,000.

“There’s a charity that I work with a lot, The Dream Foundation, and my mom has helped create a church [in Calabasas], so we help fund that,” she says.

Morgan asks Kim and sister Kourtney how they like being rich.

“I get [what they mean] when they say more money, more problems,” Kim says. “I definitely get that, but we have a great team of people that help us manage everything… [W]e just give back and try and help out any organization that’s close to our heart.”

Kim says it’s important for her to actually connect with a cause she’s donating to.

“So many people ask us to donate money, [but] some things just don’t make sense to me and I don’t feel connected or passionate to that certain thing. So when I find something I like, like The Dream Foundation, it makes it just so much more meaningful.”

Kim’s charity of choice helps terminally ill adults fulfill their dreams.

Morgan asks Kourtney if she also donates to charity. Kourtney admits she forgot, but will make sure to do so now.

The Kardashian sisters’ new show, Kourtney and Kim Take New York, airs Sundays at 10/9c on E!.

    The only reason she donated anything to anyone was to screw the government on getting any taxes from her and nothing more. She did not donate a nickel more than she could write off on taxes and the charities she gave it to were nothing but a friend or family member who will only give 25% to the actual cause if they are lucky. What do you want to bet this woman is a Jew to boot? When you figure out she is a Jew then you will see the Jews are hell bent on destroying America and every other country they bring their corruptness too. It is so awesome that the world is waking to the bloodsuckers of Israel and soon they will be destroyed and there will be no gods coming to save them this time around.
