After everyone and their dog called out Kim’s transparent attempt at charity (donating a measly 10% from the sales of her old, useless shit to the Philippines. OMG SUCH SAINT) Kim needed a way to vent her frustration and anger. Since Khloe was already taking her turn using Rob’s stomach as a punching bag, she did the next best thing. She wrote an angry letter!
Kim took to her website to defend herself against internet meanie-moes who criticize her
publicity grabs selfless acts of kindness. That’s us, you guys!! The next rounds on me!
“The problem comes in when I get attacked for giving and trying to help people. My dad always taught me the importance of giving back. I don’t publicize everything I do to help charities and people all over the world. I do it because I want to. I do it because my dad taught me to. I do it because it’s the right thing to do. So for people to attack me for giving 10% of my eBay auction sales to the people of the Philippines, that hurts.
I do eBay auctions monthly and change the charity or church from time to time. I give 10% of all my earnings to charities, not just these eBay auctions. This month it’s for the people of the Philippines, last month was Life Change Community Church.
In regards to these eBay auctions, when the eBay numbers get broken down, the auction management agency that posts for me gets a percentage for all of their hard work, then eBay listing fees, end of auction fees, eBay Store fees, Paypal fees, etc., all add up to about half of the sale. Then I give 10% to a charity.”
You can read the whole thing here, but why would you want to? Driving traffic to a Kardashian-owned website makes baby Jesus cry.
Alright, let me get this straight. So according to Kim, here’s the breakdown:
10% to the Philippines
50% divided amongst the following: the person who collects her clothes, the person who irons the ass-creases out of the skirts, the person who Febreze’s the urine smell out of her 2007-era bikinis, the people who list the items to eBay, sell them, mail them out, collect money, etc etc. I’d say that each person is taking away about 2% of each sale.
40% to Kim
Yep, seems about right! Glad you cleared that all up Kim. I mean, the number should really be somewhere in the 0% range if you had a damn conscience, but I guess it’s difficult to see that when your vision is impaired by the cartoon dollar-signs that are always bugging out of your eyes (she has her mother’s eyes).
