Kim Kardashian Gives $50,000 To Trevor Project

Posted: Updated:

Kim Kardashian strutted her charitable side when she gave a generous $50,000 to an LGBT suicide prevention program, US Weekly Magazine reports.

The reality starlet fundraised for the Trevor Project back in September when she attended a 9/11 Cantor Fitzgerald event.

"The firm lost more than 600 employees in the 9/11 attacks on the World Trade Center in 2001 and yesterday, on the 10th anniversary of the attacks, they donated all revenues from their trades to charities around the world," Kardashian wrote on her blog after attending the event. "I was honored to take part!!"

A source close to Kardashian told RumorFix.com that "it’s important to Kim to support The Trevor Project because lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people face extreme levels of hate and discrimination in her generation and she knows that they need safe places like the Trevor Project to turn for help."

This donation is just one a few benevolent gestures Kardashian recently offered up to deserving organizations.

At the end of her short-lived marriage, the former Mrs. Humphries donated the value of her wedding gifts to the Dream Foundation.

She's also auctioned personal items online, and donated some of the profits to charity, and Kardashian recently took a trip to Haiti with Kris Jenner and actress Maria Bello. While there, the group helped the organization We Advance, a nonprofit whose mission statement says: "We are stronger together than we are alone."
