We can’t help but obsessively watch Kim Kardashian’s marriage unravel, travel to Dubai and hang with BFF Jonathan on “Kourtney & Kim Take New York.” But there’s a storyline on the reality show that we haven’t seen yet: Kimmie Noel’s generous $50K donation to The Trevor Project.
It’s been reported that the reality TV mogul raised this particular chunk of change back in September, when she participated in a NY fundraiser at a big finance firm. On that particular day, Kim put on her best business attire and tried out trading for Cantor Fitzgerald, an office that lost over two-thirds of its employees on 9/11. Traders marked the 10th anniversary by donating a day’s worth of money made to charities around the world — and invited Kim to join the hustle. Seems she’s held on to her check since then, making up her mind where to direct her cash money.
And … the diva chose wisely. We’ve raved about the Trevor Project (and its creative supporters) before, but must reinforce its coolness. The Trevor Project is a major LGBT youth support resource, having been at the forefront of suicide prevention and anti-bullying campaigns since 1998 — answering 200,000 hotline calls over the years. Two hundred thousand young people who’ve been able to reach out for help. We’d say this is $50K wisely spent.
