She just lately introduced on Instagram that 20% of the income from the sale of her Skims cotton line could be donated to a charity known as Baby2Baby, to help their coronavirus response effort. 

Many folks assume that somebody as rich as Kardashian West might make extra of a donation to assist folks.

Truly, I say to you, they have received their reward (Matthew 6:2 ESV).”

It’s attainable that Kardashian and all of the Kar/Jenners are doing excess of we all know to assist out folks throughout this unprecedented disaster. We don’t actually know, however we are able to solely hope.
