Kim Kardashian donates 10 percent of earnings

Los Angeles, Dec 12 : Socialite Kim Kardashian donates 10 percent of her earnings towards charity.

Kim was recently criticised for only giving a portion of the money earned by the auction of her old clothes and accessories on eBay to non-profit organisation International Medical Corps, to help victims of Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines.

"For people to attack me for giving 10 percent of my eBay auction sales to the people of the Philippines, that hurts...I give 10 percent of all my earnings to charities, not just these eBay auctions," Kim said on her Celebuzz blog Tuesday, reports femalefirst.co.uk.

The "Keeping Up With The Kardashians" star says she makes these donations because she wants to, and she does not want people to judge her.

"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 publicise everything I do to help charities and people all over the world. I do it because I want to," she added.

"Being in the public eye, there are times I feel like I get criticised for any and everything I do," she added.
