Kanye West Donates $1 Million to Kim Kardashian’s Favorite Charities as a Birthday Present

Keeping Up with the Kardashians’ Kim Kardashian turned 39 this past week and to celebrate, her husband Kanye West donated $1 million to her favorite charities. Not only did Kanye give her some designer bags, but she was also able to give back this birthday thanks to her husband’s generous birthday present.

Kim has gone through quite the transformation in the last decade – going from Paris Hilton’s personal stylist to one of the most famous women in the world and a law student working on prison reform. Since gaining fame on Keeping Up with the Kardashians since 2007, she’s been catapulted into the spotlight and she hasn’t left. Recently, the entrepreneur has switched her focus from fame and fortune to working toward those less fortunate. Kim recently worked with the White House to free a woman, Alice Marie Johnson, from prison after she’d been sentenced to life without parole for federal drug and money laundering charges. Kim is also focusing on her law degree and prepares to take the bar exam in 2022. She’s spoken openly about how her new purpose in life will be criminal justice.

Kim tweeted a day after her birthday about all of the gifts she received and took a picture of her favorite one. The fashion icon wrote, “I got amazing gifts from my whole family and Kanye for me those amazing bags.” Kim continued to write that Kanye not only got her handbags but “he also donated $1 million to my favorite charities that work so hard on prison reform on my behalf from him and the kids.”  She posted a picture of a simple white piece of paper, written, “A donation of $1 million has been made in your name. By Kanye, North, Saint, Chi, and Psalm West.” She concluded the tweet, “This makes my heart so happy!” See the full tweet below:

On the paper is written four charities. The organizations include Cut50, The Buried Alive Project, Equal Justice Initiative, and The Anti-Recidivism Coalition which all work toward the movement of reforming our nation’s criminal justice system. The organizations are all doing their part to decrease prison population, reduce life without parole sentences, and provide post-care for former inmates. Kim is now using her platform to spread the word on her new passion – prison reform. In a recent interview with Vogue, the fashion icon and mother of four said that her past love of fame is now embarrassing to her and now helping the helpless is the only thing she wants to pursue.

With her tweet being retweeted and liked thousands of times, it seems that Kim is now using her huge platform to advocate toward helping those in need. Fans thought it was such a sweet gesture for Kanye to get Kim this for her birthday because he knew how much it means to her. Kim is changing the rules as she goes, going from fashion icon to advocate for inmates, and we are all here for it.

Snyder Cut SDCC Campaign Donates $15,000 to Suicide Prevention

The San Diego Comic Con 2019 campaign for Warner Bros. to release the Snyder cut of Justice League has raised thousands for a suicide prevention charity. Released in 2017, the DCEU Justice League movie was a box office bomb and received a lukewarm reception from fans and critics, with many blaming the problems on behind-the-scenes changes and studio interference. Directed by Man of Steel and Batman v. Superman‘s Zack Snyder, Justice League had reached the post-production stage when Snyder stepped away from the project following the tragic passing of his daughter.

Joss Whedon stepped in to oversee the completion of Justice League, but extensive reshoots would follow, fundamentally altering the story and characters and giving Henry Cavill a widely-mocked digital shave. Since the theatrical release of Justice League landed, snippets of information from those involved in the movie’s production have hinted at the changes made to Snyder’s original vision. Fans have learned of a deeper story for Cyborg, a role for the hotly-anticipated Darkseid and an altered arc for Superman. Given Justice League‘s poor reception, there have been loud calls for Warner Bros. to release what is now officially known as the “Snyder cut” but the studio seemed to double down of their theatrical Justice League in their promotion of HBO Max.

At this year’s SDCC event, a group of DC fans banded together to orchestrate a campaign calling for the Snyder cut’s release, including a huge billboard and a banner that was flown over the event by plane. In addition to raising money for the #ReleaseTheSnyderCut campaign itself, however, a considerable amount of money was also donated towards the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention. The Project Comic Con team has now posted a tweet confirming that a donation of $14,930.74 has been written out to the charity.

The merits of the Snyder cut campaign have been questioned by many, with Wikipedia event contemplating deleting the Snyder cut page, but the money raised through the project more than justifies their efforts. While DC fans may be desperate to see what Zack Snyder originally had in mind for Justice League, it’s important never to lose sight of the real world issues people face on a daily basis, and the money raised by Project Comic Con will go on to help a great many individuals suffering problems related to mental health. Deborah Snyder herself has even commended the campaign’s fundraising and expressed her heartfelt gratitude.

While the #ReleaseTheSnyderCut campaign has yet to draw any sort of positive response from Warner Bros. with regards to a new release of the Justice League movie, those involved can take pride in the fact that they made a significant contribution to the ongoing fight for improved mental health.
