A few years ago, Kim Kardashian was a presenter for the Trevor Project’s annual fundraiser and never forgot their powerful message of helping save young lives from suicide.
So when the star did a charity event with Cantor Fitzgerald, an investment bank that gives away millions every year on 9/11 to honor their employees who died in the attack, she picked the Trevor Project as her charity.
The non-profit that takes calls from gay and questioning youth has call centers in Los Angeles, New York and in San Francisco — in the very spot that Harvey Milk took calls when he was a Supervisor in the 70s.
So Kim helped raise $50,000 — making her one of the largest celebrity donors to the organization joining the ranks of Daniel Radcliffe and Jodie Foster, who have made substantial contributions over the years.
A source close to Kim tells RumorFix, “It’s important to Kim to support The Trevor Project because lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people face extreme levels of hate and discrimination in her generation and she knows that they need safe places like the Trevor Project to turn for help.”
We’re told that the Kourtney and Kim Take New York star is so impressed with the Trevor Project that she’s planning to visit the call center in the near future.
