Whether she is simply trying to repair her image after the backlash from her divorce or she is hoping to continue growing her heart after her humanitarian trip to Haiti, Kim Kardashian isn’t all bad. She has donated $50,000 to The Trevor Project! Read on for details on the charitable donation from the Kourtney and Kim Take New York reality star…including where the money really came from. Is the act still so commendable?
We’re incredibly glad to hear from E! Online that Kim Kardashian has donated $50,000 to The Trevor Project, a nonprofit organization that provides crisis intervention and suicide prevention to young people who are lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender. It’s a lot of money, even for a huge celebrity like Kim, and we’re glad that she’s putting her funds toward a place that can really make a difference.
However, it’s not as if the money actually came from her own pocket. The contribution is actually the money that was raised at a NYC charity event she participated in with investment banking firm Cantor Fitzgerald last September, on the 10-year anniversary of 9/11. What else was she supposed to do with the money, keep it? Of course it was going to go to charity; it was just a matter of picking which one!
Sorry Kim, but we’re hoping that when you make charitable contributions in the future, the money actually comes from you.
Do you think Kim Kardashian should be praised for the “donation” she made?
