Kim Kardashian and her family have donated $500,000 to charities in Texas to aid the Hurricane Harvey relief effort, WENN.com reports.

The reality TV star and her half sisters Khloe Kardashian, Kendall Jenner, Kylie Jenner and Kourtney Kardashian, and their mom Kris Jenner, donated $500,000 directly to The American Red Cross and The Salvation Army.

Announcing the news on social media on Tuesday Kim wrote: “Houston we are praying for you! My mom, sisters & I will be donating $500,000 to @redcross and @salvationarmyus today #HoustonStrong.”

The family donation is one of the largest made by celebrities including Beyonce, T.I., Chris Brown, Jennifer Lopez, DJ Khaled, Drake, Dwayne Johnson, and Nicki Minaj following Kevin Hart‘s online video challenge to his peers to dig deep and donate to Texas relief efforts.

According to storm statisticians at America’s National Weather Service, Texas has never seen a storm like the category four Hurricane Harvey which dumped 50 inches of rain since Friday night, Aug. 25.

  • Victorious82

    Sad they have to announce theses things on social media. I know if she hadn’t they probably would’ve blasted her for not donating. I don’t envy celebs.

  • Jen_no_juice

    Now I believe THIS was done for publicity. Kanye has even stated during Katrina that red cross didn’t really help out but that’s the charity they chose oh ok. Thanks for loading their pockets even more. I really hope Red Cross uses it the right way this time

  • Victorious82

    She didn’t mention Kanye either ?

  • Jen_no_juice

    Probably cause he doesn’t like red cross

  • Bossy704

    Kardashians always come thru on that philanthropic work. Kim and them went to New Orleans and seemed really sincere about helping and learning about the people. Always thought they were a beautiful family. Their clothing line at Sears sucked though.

  • http://www.NeCola.Mayvenn.com Chile_Pleeze

    Too bad majority of that money will be lining the pockets of the executives of those organizations…

  • Kayke

    Sponsor individuals….this way the money actual goes where it’s suppose to. These “Charities” overhead matters more to them than the people.

  • Darkandlovely617?

    ?
    Yells at you in whispering voice, so no one hears me: I actually liked their Sears line! I have a pair of booties which I will literally cry over when I can’t get the heel fixed anymore ?

  • Zeta Phi Beta 1920

    LOL!

    Yup.

    And…She still can’t come over

  • http://ebonynsweet.com Ebony N’ Sweet

    Sadly I heard too many stories of Donation money not getting into the hands of the victims when dealing with the Red-Cross. Like when $30 million never got to Haiti. Redcross has huge overhead costs to have all those store locations. And they have a huge employee force that get real salaries.I think the CEO is pocketing alot of the money too. Donate to smaller charities that actually give the money to the poor.

  • Lisa daniels

    The reality TV star and her half sisters Khloe Kardashian, Kendall Jenner, Kylie Jenner and Kourtney Kardashian, a……

    You got that part right????

  • NIA

    LOL to the photo bomb…. they will get it back tax season. Celebrities act like they do so, much. They get privileges it’s all PR while others suffer.

    REDCROSS yeah ok! they do the mininum and pocket the REST.

  • Shawty

    Its cool to see the folks help in time of need. Really cool!!!
    Hope the money is used properly.

  • Kayke

    She could’ve and not said anything like many celebs do. I bet Rhianna donates and says nothing as she is building schools and giving scholarships when no one is watching and mother nature doesn’t prompt. It’s for publicity and tax deduction, only. That’s why it didn’t matter where the money went….even to a charity her husband called out for misappropriation of funds.

  • Bonsai

    What was that girl doing in the photo bomb, giving the middle finger? I tried squinting but still can’t make it out.

  • http://www.missjhaneuniverse.com Monday

    Like I said under another post. It is the last quarter before tax season. They can “donate” to organisations for tax return.

    The awakens knows about New Orleans, Haiti…. And Flint… Area still haven’t recovered

  • Reina1718

    To red cross? Do even know how the red cross handled these situations??? ?????

  • Reina1718

    Exactly

  • BacktolurkingIgo

    They should donate on his behalf as he was one of the biggest humanitarians…Happy birthday King https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/71551721def5cd412aae48ef2478ec43caf6a3b3265bb5b912dfa85f4299d6a1.jpg

  • Miss Thang

    Red Cross helped me and my family a great deal during Hurricane Andrew. I don’t know what happened for the Haiti earthquake, but I felt I have to say something because they did help a lot of us a great deal in the aftermath of Andrew in 1992 which was a Category 5 hurricane and absolutely devastated South Florida.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    Thank you. People should just be grateful for what they gave, instead of finding fault.
    God bless them for giving. That was good of them to do that.

    Tina Knowles Lawson wrote something for you and the likes of you today

    ” Is it possible this this is a message from God to make us wake up and really face the fact that we all need each other to survive. That all of this hate and prejudice and racism is just plain stupid. Today I have seen the photos of all races Carrying People and helping others. What is very clear to me is that when you think you’re going to die it does not matter the color of the skin of the person who is rescuing you. I don’t think anyone is going to say no I’ll just stay here and drown or I’ll let my children drown before I let a_______ person Carry me or my children. (You fill in the blank) Would you ? That’s what i thought! Stop the hate ! “

  • Karen Brady

    wow. I hear that. about to google.. thanks.

  • Darkandlovely617?

    Seriously!
    I’m so curious now, bc I read the article in what I thought her voice would sound like ?

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    Me neither. I wouldn’t mind being rich, but I would never want to be famous.

    I’m glad they’re giving but wish it wasn’t through those agencies… hell yeah they’ll write it off but it still helps IF the money makes it to the people

  • xenaD

  • Karen Brady

    I can understand that.. Poor things.. It’s not the time people.. just thinking about some damn ratings :-(.

  • stav

    There is nothing these whores do that’s not for the media, hope (which I doubt)all the money makes it to those in need!

  • morenYAHdelsur

    ???

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    I don’t know why people are slamming them for “only” giving $500,000. I guarantee you there are folks richer than them that haven’t given a penny so far. Not one penny.

  • Darkandlovely617?

    Never mind that doe ?????

    Yo, she was in jail for “robbing a Jewish adult video shop”

    I was like ? I thought they didn’t do that ?

  • TheOwley

    I would love to know how much the billionaire usual suspects have donated (Gates, Zuckerberg, Bezos).

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    Yup. They could drop $10-15 million each and not even feel it. And they could probably make back that money in like 2 weeks or less.

  • Oretta Grace Smith

    Black people need to learn to support each other 500,000, 5 million or more! Can’t get mad cause other races know how to promote each other and keep money in their race, by any means necessary. Then, we don’t have to get mad at others.

  • starbright9449

    I like to see celebs donating money to charitable organisations but it also irks me because I know a lot of the money don’t make it to those in need or is put to use by buying what they need. If I had that kind of cheddar I would buy the food and items and hop on a plane with my team to distribute them myself. I’m tired of hearing stories about greed and those in need not receiving much and somtimes nothing at all. But I don’t have that kind of cheddar so let me shut up and sit small.

  • hottlanta

    I feel so sorry for Houston residents. This makes me so sad.
    My Houston brothers and sisters, stay safe and strong.

    But I gotta say this: Ms. Minaj, please let that pink Barbie black Barbie, whatever, s*** go. It’s old and you’re too young for that.
    Kim, cover yourself up. You have young kids. Cover them tittays. We all know you a ho, you don’t have to prove it every time you go out.

  • Malcom Flex

    3 baby daddies. The tall ugly one, the hairdresser is her daddy, the two young whores, the cross dresser is pops, and the other ones, the crook lawyer=3 different baby daddies if bih was a BW they’d be calling her all sorts of hoes and thots.

  • Malcom Flex

    That’s just PR for them half a mill ain’t shit to those whores sorry not sorry I don’t ride for them period.

  • Malcom Flex

    Too bad he left most of his money to white kids.

  • Oretta Grace Smith

    You mean Nicki is too old.

  • Oretta Grace Smith

    You are so right, And blacks most definitely wouldn’t MAKE them rich millionaires if they were black!!! So damn sad the brainwashing of the blacks.

  • dontgetblocked

    The donation is a tax write-off and they made sure they let the media know they did it. Those Kartrashians.

  • hottlanta

    Kim the “ho” has a husband while them pew sitters are still praying for one.

  • imright

    not just them

  • dontgetblocked

    They give and don’t announce it. In the end, it’s a tax write-off. You’d be surprised how much money white folks donate…the tax breaks they get.

  • imright

    has Drake donated he reps Houston

  • TheOwley

    Try in a day.

  • Allihave2say

    ?Chris Brown & JJ Watt each donated $100,000 to Houston for Hurricane Harvey. Beyonce sent us her prayers. Money is good but a portion always ends up in the hands of administrators and they decide how to spend it. Please ship to Houston, diapers, baby clothes, formula, diaper wipes, clothes for large and tall people, shoes, blankets, socks, water, canned goods, towels, soap toothpaste, tooth brushes etc. People need pens and paper to write notes for agencies they have to work with.

    Berry Center, 8877 Barker Cypress Rd, Cypress, TX 77433
    MET, 13000 Jones Rd, Houston, TX 77070
    Prayers bring optimism but donations bring progress and healing.

    Thank you America for all the love and support. ? ? ?

  • Phyllis

    I must tell y’all this even though it’s not an open post but somewhat related….
    I’m here in Sugarland(suburb of Houston) , and we are flooded here but not as bad as my other Houstonians.. Well, hubby and I discovered that the bar and Pizza Hut was open across the street from us . We haven’t had any real restaurant /bar food in a while, and decided to go to the bar to have a few drinks and order some food while our sons were at the house . As we were eating, the power is going off and on … I walk to the Pizza Hut , and they say they are closed due to the power outage.
    Me and the hubs proceed to eat our food and decided to trot back to the Pizza Hut to see if there were any changes.
    Do you know they gave us 4 large pizzas and a 2 liter Mountain Dew for Free?!!!! This fed all our boys y’all … such a blessing ..

    Moral of the story : when you are good to people , the blessings pour out unexpectedly…

    And also on another note, I wish family and friends would check on us when nothing is going on. Anyone can fall and have a heart attack or get in a car accident at anytime… Check on people without wanting/needing Anything!!! *small rant* #lifeisshort #realtalk

    Please continue your prayers for Houstonians and surrounding areas…

If they’re on the way someone will get them here. The city is using helicopters to bring materials in. Everything is in water.

    ok thanks! I will be getting supplies tonight to send out!

  • Blaque Mahogany

    Bill Gates is a known philanthropist, despite the fact his PR team doesn’t have him announce every donation he makes. Can’t speak for the rest, but just because they aren’t announcing it, it doesn’t mean they aren’t donating.

  • TheOwley

    I agree that philanthropy is often done quietly. Knowing these people have done their part would be comforting for many, at the very least, knowing they did “”something”” and announce they have done much more privately extends some good will towards them.

    I agree, people who survived a life threatening event will be thankful for anything, even a bottle of water that we normally take for granted. The negative responses are from people who don’t have a clue about being in need after a disaster. And right now, they are in need of everything!

    Love it when folks come through with the goods. They found some old tweets Dump had said about President Obama when Sandy hit.

    Fast forward to present day, when Trump just did the very thing he scorned Obama for five years ago: traveling to the area affected by a hurricane, where he stood in water and rain. The current POTUS, joined by a stiletto-clad Melania Trump, headed to Texas to assess the damage of Hurricane Harvey. Oh, the irony. Watch out for that puddle, Donald!

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    If celebrities dont let anybody know they gave, they got people on social media saying “How come they didn’t give anything? Why are they keeping their money to themselves?”. If they let people know they gave, people say “They made sure the media knew… they’re just doing it for attention”. They just cant win, either way.

    As for me, I’m glad the Kardashians gave, and I’m glad they let the media know. That will create awareness for other celebrities, and encourage them to give too.

  • Anunnaki

    Lol, I was actually talking about an ad that keep popping up when I come to her site… but either way I got a good laugh from you… lmboooo

  • Ms.Vanilla

    Same here. Thought it was just me.

  • Allihave2say

    I would mail directly to some of the shelters listed on the news. I listed some of the places I know for a fact are actually helping people and taking them in. Money gets spent paying administrative fees, salaries, expenses and travel before the people ever see any help. The Mayor might get mad about me telling people to mail to City Hall but Hey, they’re more likely to give to citizens than some of these others.
    In Houston I know people are at
    The Berry Center, The MET on Jones Road, The George R Brown Convention Center, B F Berry High School in Fort Bend County, Gallery Furniture on North freeway and Grand Parkway Locations. I’m not trusting Lakewood Church at this point.

  • soujourn_erets

    Balanced? What do you mean?

    The Messiah clearly states not to sound a horn when you’re doing a deed. Pretty straight forward.

    It’s all vain when they do it.

  • soujourn_erets

    Well, folks shouldn’t expect much and give much honor to these celebs. Why hold them on such a high pedestal? Are they our moral compass?

    I’ll go with what the creator of this world when he says, “Don’t sound the alarm when you choose to do a deed”. It’s very simple.

  • Shawty

    There are folks out here scamming people in the name of helping the victims. I got a call last night from someone claiming he was accepting donations for Harvey victims. When I told him I’d donate thru someone I’m more familiar with like FEMA or Red Cross, he tried to convince me that my money would never get to the people. He was mad that I chose to give but not thru his bogus organization. What difference does it make what org you go thru as long as you donate. NEVER listen to these people. They are scam artist. While talking to him I tried looking his org up online and of course you know the results….nothing. BE CAREFUL!!!!

  • Malai

    “And your father who sees in secret shall himself reward you openly.” I think it is very unfortunate that so many people have been brainwashed to believe that “if it isn’t on video then it didn’t happen.” The point of soujourn writing what they did was to remind others that the good deed is supposed to speak for itself. We live in a world where people are seeking constant validation and this situation begins to look more like they’re donating in order to “not look bad” verses actually donating with a kind, loving, and generous heart.

    “And your father who sees in secret shall himself reward you openly.” I think it is very unfortunate that so many people have been brainwashed to believe that “if it isn’t on video then it didn’t happen.” The point of soujourn writing what they did was to remind others that the good deed is supposed to speak for itself.

  • Oretta Grace Smith

    So true and if not, start with us, like Jay-Z stated.

  • Lorenzo Chaps

    Sounds like adopting a family is more of the way to go. I’m sure that also has some drawback too. I hate this for everybody. You do what you can, but there’s still some guilt cuz you’re reaching back to help this family, but behind you are hundreds of other families. And no, no matter the “reported wealth,” one person can’t be tasked to do it all.

    Did YOU donate any money from your checks you make?? Or u one of “those” that like to sit back judge and envy the rich?? Claiming u don’t make enough to help nobody but YOU? With or without money you entitled to do what you want to do good or bad. Your actions you do for ppl or God don’t have to be blasted…you never know what people are doing for others because everybody don’t have to put it out there!! To me that’s a more meaningful way in showing your not doing for validation purposes or trying to prove something to ppl!

    Well ktrashy doesn’t say the did, it says ‘they will’ be donating. There’s no proof they donated anything.

  • Karen Brady

    You’re saying we’re going to need receipts?

  • Karen Brady

    Oh hell to the naw (in my Whitney voice). How dare he! That’s right folks… don’t take any calls.. damn scammers. Me personally decided this morning to go thru Black America Web cause brother Tom Joyner said they won’t touch a dime of our donations to take care of any admin fees or anything.. said they’ll take care of everything. We can give to a general fund or choose one of the letters and help an individual or family. Nice. Another station is sending bottled water. There’s ways to help no matter how big or small but don’t let these evil ones out here scam you!

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    Some of them give publicly as a way of encouraging their fellow celebrities to also give. We dont need to judge people’s intentions. They gave, and that’s a good thing. The money will help people in need, and that’s what matters the most.
    It doesn’t do any good to sit on the sidelines and find fault.

  • soujourn_erets

    I’ll stick with what the Messiah said. We are to judge righteously. We judge a tree by its fruit.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    Doesnt matter. They gave 500k and that will help people in need. Doesnt matter what they do with the rest of their money.
    Besides, there are many other people as rich or richer than them that haven’t given anything, so lets just be grateful for those who do give (whatever we might think their motives are).

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    Fine. But there’s a difference between judging righteously and just being judgmental. Let’s just keep that in mind.

  • soujourn_erets

    Please explain using scriptures .?

    MatthiYahu (Matthew) 7 will be a great starting point.

  • hottlanta

    In my Auntie Maxine voice you come for me I come for you. I don’t need to wait for a disaster or Thanksgiving/Christmas holiday to fake give once a year. I do mine’s 24/7. Boy these slaves sho take up for their white massa and get testy if you say anything about them. You mad at me but you ain’t got no problem with Dump pimping a hat during people suffering for his own gain. That is as low as you go.

    Red cross only donates 10 percent of donations. i would never give to them or salvation army or good will.

  • http://www.swedishsoul.com Christina Duphorn Zehnder

  • Phyllis

    Indeed we will. Thank you!!!

  • Phyllis

    I bet it was. Glad you are safe and out of harms way.

  • Phyllis

    Same to you sister. Glad to know that you are ok.

  • Phyllis

    I appreciate that. Thank you!!

  • Phyllis

    This is our first time staying . Hubby didn’t want to leave because he thought we would have a hard time getting back( I know?) Not to mention the mayor said don’t leave due to all the major traffic of folks leaving at the same time. But now, we are thinking about moving since this happens quite often in Houston.
    Thanks for your prayers..We truly appreciate it.

  • Zeta Phi Beta 1920

    Then how do you motivate other?
    Who is going to be the role model?
    How do you get it to the masses?

  • Nancy Drew-Natural & Luv’n It!

    Lol! (but his children will eat too, so that’s ‘something’)

  • BaybeK8s

    Probably waiting for the film crew, they going to need more footage for their series.

  • soujourn_erets

    My bad. I had to run an errand.

    At this point, we already know what motivate others. Our role models are you and me – not those satanists that we see on tv.

    Reaching out to the masses is not a tough battle. We have so many resources for that.

  • Shay boogie

    They did. Shaderoom posted the Receipts of the $250k ?

  • Dontgetdraggedhoe??

    That money will probably go to help their haters and their families. Ima wait to see who’s gonna say uh uh we aint taking their money its fake like they are.
    Thank you kardajenners.

  • Dontgetdraggedhoe??

    I donated $2000 my whole rent check and i agree with hottlanta. What did iainshitka give? Because her barbie stepsistermom and her jackolantern daddy went down there to throw a mini rally and we didn’t see her or kushner’s nose so don’t come for hottlanta

  • https://vidozz.com/cyq ? King Kari ?????????

    Nope I’m saying they open their mouths and put comes lies.

  • https://vidozz.com/cyq ? King Kari ?????????

  • JJSPLAYHOUSE

    RIGHT!
