No matter what, the spotlight is always going to be on Kim Kardashian. So she’s doing her best to direct that attention somewhere that could really use it.
Along with fellow celebs Maria Bello, Patricia Arquette, Donna Karan and her mom Kris Jenner, Kardashian traveled to Haiti last week on what she called a “life-changing” and “incredible” trip to bring awareness to the local plights of gender-based violence and poor health care in the hard-hit nation.
The women traveled down as part of Bello’s We Advance organization, founded in 2010 in the wake of the country’s devastating earthquake, and visited the Artists for Peace and Justice School, replenished medical supplies at local clinics, treated 500 orphans to gifts at the Sow a Seed Christmas party and even met with the president of Haiti, Michel Martelly.
“We were brought together through a bizarre turn of events, and we discovered our mutual goal of empowering women using our own unique voices,” she blogged today. Bravo, Kim! Way to keep focused on what matters.
