The Kardashians have a bad rep for the many things they have been known to do that were less than honorable. There is no doubt they seek attention and live for the fame. The media is very quick to cover the things they do that attract attention, specifically negative attention, simply because it drives revenue. Everyone loves to read gossip. What the media doesn’t cover are the good they’ve done to give back and contribute to worthy causes. Why? How many people really want to read about the good things they’ve done? No one, that’s why.
The truth is, while the family has taken part into some questionable actions there are many contributions and worthy foundations they’ve reached out to and support. And while their fame has attracted much criticism, they have taken advantage of their fame to raise awareness for causes that are not as widely recognized.
You may not have known that Khloe Kardashian is an advocate for animal rights and has campaigned to save animals through PETA. She may be well-known for her fashion line, but she is definitely NOT for using real fur and has worked to raise awareness for protecting animals, such as the tigers, from becoming used as such. She has also worked with other organizations to help provide shoes for those in need through Soles4Souls. Among her many causes, she blogs to raise awareness of the organizations she supports.
Kourtney Kardashian has also worked in support of sick children through the St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. Additionally, she has stood alongside her sister, Kim, to support and raise awareness for Elton John’s AIDS Foundation. She also moved the idea for the entire family to host a yard sale to get rid of their unused household items which all proceeds went to various charities including No Kid Goes Hungry among others the family chose.
Kim Kardashian, likely the most well-known of the Kardashian sisters for her, ahem, not-so-desirable choices has also given her fair share back to those in need. She has supported a vast number of charities including the Dream Foundation, Race to Erase MS, The Salvation Army, just to name a few. She also brings awareness to over 20 worthy causes to show her support.
While the family has received much heat for some of their charity work, they do give back and deserve some credit for supporting and raising awareness to causes that aren’t as widely known. Yes, they are filthy rich, but it is worth noting that they do put their fame and fortune to good use.
