Celebrities have been thinking up creative ways to help out the victims of the Haiti disaster, and joining them is Kim Kardashian. The reality star dug deep into her closet for clothes to auction off, hoping that selling them would really aid those in need.
The Keeping Up with the Kardashians socialite announced how she'll be doing her part to donate proceeds to the cause. Kim told E! Online that her eBay event will kick off next week and will feature several of her slightly used fashions. That usually means they've just been worn once and already stored in the star's dresser.
"We're doing huge eBay charity auctions," Kim Kardashian revealed. The announcement was made during the launch of her new footwear line, ShoeDazzle. It was held last week at the Los Angeles Century City mall.
"I have an eBay store called Kim's Closet," the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star continued. "Me, Kourtney, KhloÃÆÃÂ©, my mom, Reggie, and I think Lamar have all put up a whole bunch of auctions that launch next week, and it all goes to Haiti. It's our shoes and our clothes. Get cute clothes and help out Haiti."
In the past years, Kim Kardashian and her family have always been involved in charity events like these. A couple of years ago, they held another fashion auction to benefit the Dream Foundation. The organization is one that grants wishes for terminally ill adults, another cause the reality star is passionate about.
Another charity effort made by the Keeping Up with the Kardashians stars is the boxing match in 2009. The game was held once again for the Dream Foundation, and Kim even suffered a black eye for that.
This time, Kim may not be getting in the ring for charity, but will still do her part in helping out Haiti. "At the end of the day, we did this for charity and that's what counts," the star blogged in the past. It really is admirable to see this family pooling their resources for the less-fortunate.
