Kim’s Haiti Trip: Charity or PR Move?
Kim Kardashian has found time in her extremely busy schedule to take a trip to Haiti and visited the earthquake-stricken country with her mom, the Kardashian clan queen Kris Jenner over the weekend. The 31-year-old Kim teamed up with actress and singer Maria Bello, who has been working in Haiti for the past three years. The Coyote Ugly star Bello co-founded We Advance organization that was founded in 2010 in after the emptying earthquake in the country.
Maria and Kim attended and celebrated women the charity works with and Kim admitted that the experience was ‘incredible’ and posted a picture on her blog depicting herself and Maria, her mother Kris and Patricia Arquette, who also took part in the party.Moreover, Kim and Maria wrote a blog post for The Huffington post on their experience and explained their tasks in Haiti. They said:
We were brought together through a bizarre turn of events, and we discovered our mutual goal of empowering women using our own unique voices.”
Our itinerary was to visit some of the small, grassroots NGOs that We Advance works with, including Artists for Peace and Justice, Femmes en Democratie, and Give Love, and to join women at the trade fair and fashion show in celebrating their achievements.”
The party was also attended by such big shots as Oprah Winfrey, Sean Penn, and Donna Karan. The media mogul had dinner with President Michel Martelly and his wife Sophia and promised to return to the country, but Penn admitted that helping to rebuild the country after last year’s natural disaster has become his life’s work. Oprah is going to make a film about Haiti on her Oprah Winfrey Network; she told reporters at the encampment:
This is part of the next chapter, going around the world to see interesting and fascinating cases of profound examples of what can be done to make a difference in the world.”
I must note that a massive, 7.0 earthquake struck Haiti January 12th last year, killing 230,000 and making 1.3 million more homeless. It’s so cool that stars who have opportunities to help take their chances to carry out some contribution to ease the suffer of those who experienced such an awful phenomenon.I desperately hope that the Kardashians went there really with means to help, but not for PR aims. If I’m right then these people still have something inspiring in their hearts…Still, just look at Kim and Kris standing there in their designer hats with hair and make up done, gawking-it-up for the cameras once again. Heck humanitarians.
