Kim Kardashian announces she’ll donate $1 million to the Armenia Fund
Kim Kardashia n s h owe d she wasn’t just talk on Saturday as she announced a $1 million donation to the Armenia Fund. T h e 39-yearo l d Keeping Up With The Kardashians star posted a short video to social media in which she revealed her support for the humanitarian organization dedicated to helping those in Armenia and the disputed region of Nagorno-Karabakh, also known as Artsakh. Her charitable donation comes amid continued fighting between Azerbaijan and Armenia, both of which have claimed the disputed area. Kim was dressed simply but elegantly in her one-minute video with a lustrous beige tank top. She had her raven tresses tied back tightly into thick braids swept over one shoulder, and she wore a variety of thick silver ear cuffs that framed her impeccably made-up face.
‘I’m so honored to be a part of today’s global effort to support the Armenia Fund,’ Kim began after introducing herself. ‘I’ve been speaking out about the current situation in Armenia and Artsakh, and having conversations with so many others to bring further awareness to the crisis that we can not allow to advance.’ The reality star offered her ‘thoughts and prayers for the brave men, women and children,’ presumably referring to the ethnic Armenians in the region.
‘We need to remember that despite the distance that separates us, we are not limited by borders. We are one global Armenian nation together,’ she continued. Kim explained that the Armenia fund was offering ‘food, shelter and medical care to those impacted by the fighting, before revealing she would be donating $1 million ‘to assist their efforts on the ground.’ The shapewear mogul encouraged her fans and followers to give what they could to the fund, or just to share information about it on social media. Kim’s sisters Kourtney and Khloé Kardashian both shared similar videos of their own, minus the $1 million donations.
