Kylie Jenner has given $750,000 (R11 million) to a women’s empowerment organisation
The 22-year-old television personality appeared on Monday’s episode of The Ellen Degeneres Show alongside her mother Kris Jenner, and marked the occasion – her first sit-down interview since giving birth to her daughter Stormi in February 2018 – by donating the whopping sum to the charity, Nest of Love.
Kylie and Kris learned about the group’s inspiring work from founder Samantha Gil and two of its main members, Briana Grumet and Daniela Villa, and used their time on the talk show to give back in an impressive way.
The lip kit mogul donated $150,000 (R2,2 million) to the organisation as a whole, and a further $100,000 (R1,4 million) specifically for Samatha, before revealing she had something special to give to each member of the female group.
Alongside handing them a Kylie Cosmetics Birthday collection each, Kylie revealed: “We are giving you each $50,000 (R734 000). Each one of you… Each of you for the amazing things you guys do. You guys are so amazing.”
63-Year-old momager Kris added: “We admire you all so much. I know I do.”
In total, Kylie gifted $750,000 to the charity and its members, thanks to the proceeds of the Kylie Cosmetics Birthday Collection.
