What a lovely story!
Though she’s the IT girl of social media, trendsetter and no stranger to shocking the public with some controversial moves, Kylie Jenner clearly has a heart of gold as well.
The KUWTK star has donated $150,000 to American kids’ organisation Smile Train, which will help more than 600 kids with cleft lip and palates receive brand new smiles – aww!
The Lip Kit maven presented the cheque, equivalent to around £123,000, to Smile Train CEO Susannah Schaefer at her LA headquarters on Wednesday (26th October) – and it’ll pay for 638 children to receive new smiles.
Kylie, 19, is an ambassador of the charity, and she’s also released a lip colour especially for the cause. She revealed:
‘Through my company Kylie Cosmetics, I was able to create a beautiful pink lip kit shade called Smile specifically for Smile Train.
‘I couldn’t be happier that 100% of the net proceeds are going straight to Smile Train to help kids around the world get the surgery they need to help them have beautiful smiles and the opportunity to live healthy, happy lives.’
Posing with six-year-old Zachary, who received free surgery through a partner hospital in his home country of Ethiopia, Kylie also spoke about how ‘honoured’ she felt to be a part of Smile Train.
‘It’s really important to me to present this check to Susannah today, knowing that 638 cleft children will now have the chance to thrive. It’s an honour to be part of changing so many children’s futures.’
Now, isn’t that an uplifting story for everyone?
