Kim Kardashian Doing Charity
Reality TV star Kim Kardashian West has launched a Facebook fundraiser to raise money for children’s mental health. The initiative will be for the Child Mind Institute- a non-profit organization that helps children who are suffering from mental health issues or other difficulties.
Kim Kardashian who is popular for her social media presence urges her followers to donate as much cash to the charity as possible. Apparently, the aim is to raise $50,000 through this so these children can go to schools and thrive.
While talking about this on Facebook, Kim Kardashian said that she was herself a mother to three children. And she believes there is nothing more important than their physical and mental health. She claimed that almost 17 million US children suffer from disorders or health issues including anxiety, depression, ADHD or dyslexia. And this makes it harder for them to succeed in life. But what these children really need is to get properly diagnosed and treated. Kim Kardashian said that she wanted to ensure that when the students return to schools back in the term, they have everything they need to thrive. The TV star added that every dollar mattered. So any help, be it $5, $50, or $500 would be appreciated.
Kim Kardashian further shared the motives and efforts of the Child Mind Institute. She said that the charity organization transforms the lives of children suffering from these disorders and that children from all the globe were helped. Their researchers were also continually studying the brain to find better diagnostic and treatment measures. Not just that, but they extend their support to classrooms assisting students, teachers and parents to manage emotions in a better and healthy manner.
Despite whatever beliefs that people might have against the KUWTK star, this is not the first time that Kim Kardashian has used her popularity for something noble. Previously, she has used her celebrity status to draw attention to Alice Marie Johnson’s prison release. The 63-year old woman was sentenced to life in prison for drug offense charges that were not proven. Other than that, she has tried to help society with her charity at various instances.
This time, Kim Kardashian is campaigning for mental health- something that means a lot to her. Not only because she herself has three children, but also because her husband Kanye West has himself suffered breakdowns and even got suicidal at points.
It’s a great cause that Kim is working for, and we hope she succeeds.
