Kim Kardashian Gets Slammed for Latest Charity Efforts
By: Amanda Anderson-Niles
Kanye West may be determined to become one half of the next celebrity power couple, but his goal may be delayed as long as Kim Kardashian continues to be one of the most hated public figures. The reality star’s image took a massive hit after she filed for divorce from her second husband Kris Humphries after a mere 72 days, and many of her critics began to question if she only married the NBA player for her reality show. Kim insisted the love was real, but even Kris Humphries thinks it was all a sham he was never in on. Regardless, Kim and Kanye are making lots of headlines with their romance, but it’s still hasn’t managed to prove much to Kim’s critics.
Kim decided to do something pretty charitable for the Philippines typhoon victims and she decided she would sell her used clothes and accessories on Ebay and donate the proceeds. However, she got slammed something serious on social media after it was discovered that only 10% of the proceeds would actually go to the victims. Kim is keeping a whopping 90% of the money made from sales all to herself:
On the charitable act, Kim writes:
Hi guys, this is a very special auction because a portion of the proceeds of my eBay auction are going to International Medical Corps, a nonprofit organisation that provides critical health services on remote islands where families are struggling to access medical care and basic resources like food, clean drinking water and vital medications
The proceeds will go directly to the communities they’re serving in the Philippines and will help typhoon survivors get access to medical care and ultimately save lives.
Do you think Kim was wrong to donate just 10% of the profits or are people just overreacting? Speak on it below.
