Kim Kardashian has been showing off her charitable side by donating a massive $50,000 to The Trevor Project. Kardashian has been a long-time supporter of the organization, and she chose to give some of her fortune to lend them a helping hand. Although there are sure to be skeptics who think her donation was a way to try and win over the hearts of the people who turned on her after her divorce, this is not her first charity donation. Here are three more examples of Kim's kindness.
Helping in Haiti
In December 2011, the reality television star swapped her designer clothes for something a little more practical when she went to Haiti. Along with her mother, Kris Jenner, and fellow celebrities Donna Karen, Maria Bello and Patricia Arquette, she learned about Bello's charity, We Advance. While she was there, she put her hand in her pocket, and helped out local traders by purchasing some of their jewelry. It might not have been a large contribution, but in a place that was so ravaged by a disaster, every little bit helps!
Wedding gifts for charity
The storm that surrounded Kardashian's divorce from Kris Humphries was huge. Many believed that the wedding was faked for money, and there was a lot of talk about what would happen to all of her lavish wedding gifts. A quick halt was put to the rumors when it was revealed that she would donate her gifts to the Dream Foundation. The raven-haired beauty has been supporting the charity for many years, and her donation was gratefully received.
Helping the homeless
Last Thanksgiving, Kim put her work boots on and headed to the Los Angeles Mission to serve meals to the homeless, alongside Jennifer Love Hewitt, and other stars. While there was no money involved in this project, it showed that Kardashian isn't afraid to give something back, and doesn't mind getting her hands dirty for a good cause.
