Kim Kardashian and ex-husband Kris Humphries received over $100,000 in wedding presents when they were married in August. When their marriage fizzled after only 72 days, many might wonder about all those gifts they received. What’s the right thing to do? Keep them? Return them? Kim decided to keep the gifts, but donate all the money that was spent on her to a charity she’s passionate about.
Kim Kardashian is making lemonade out of lemons. The reality star, 31, and husband Kris Humphries received about $100,000 worth of wedding gifts back in August, but they famously called it quits after just 72 days, with Kardashian filing for divorce Oct. 31.
But Kardashian wrote all of her wedding guests a thank-you note. As obtained by TMZ, the letter reads “I would like to thank you for your generous and thoughtful wedding gift. It has taken me some time to pull everything together but I wanted to let you know that the money for every gift received by me at my wedding has been donated to the Dream Foundation.”
A source confirms to Us that Kardashian wrote a check to the Dream Foundation worth double the value of her expensive gifts. (While Kardashian and Humphries, 26, kept the actual gifts, the source explains that the Dream Foundation, like most charities, could make far better use of the money versus high-priced vases and blenders.)
Similar to the Make-a-Wish Foundation, the Dream Foundation, founded in 1993, is a “wish-granting organization” for adults (from paying bills to creating happy memories to providing emotional support) with life-threatening illnesses.
“Our dreamers have received a life expectancy of one year or less, and lack the resources to achieve their dreams on their own,” the charity’s website explains. “While we cannot cure their diseases, we can dramatically impact the quality of their fragile lives with the joy experienced from a dream come true.”
At least one good thing came out of their disastrous wedding!
