Kanye West Donates $1 Million To Prison Reform Charities To Celebrate Kim Kardashian’s 39th Birthday
In celebration of Kim Kardashian’s 39th birthday, he donated $1 million to a handful of prison reform charities.
“I got amazing gifts from my whole family and Kanye for me the most amazing bags. 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. This makes my heart so happy!”
The charities that received the donation are: Cut 50, Buried Alive Project, Equal Justice Initiative and Anti-Recidivism Coalition.
Kim Kardashian has been a major pillar in the prison reform movement ever since she helped free Alice Johnson. Johnson had been in jail for more than 20 years on drug charges when Kardashian was able to petition her release in 2017.
This isn’t the first time West has gifted Kardashian with $1 million for a cause.
In October 2018, he gave her $1 million after she refused to upload an Instagram for a company that frequently sold knockoff Yeezy items. She said after speaking with West, she decided not to do the deal. But it paid off for her anyway.
“He happened to be recording out of town, and I get an envelope delivered to the door. I open the envelope, and it is a million-dollar check and a note saying, ‘Thank you for always supporting me and not posting.'”
“My mom was like, ‘Are you going to cash this?’ And I was like, ‘You better believe I am going to cash this!’ I have no shame. I did feel bad, but two days later, I was like, cashed!”
