Kylie Jenner is set to donate $500,000 to Teen Cancer America charity.
The 20-year-old television personality has announced on social media she will be handing over the whopping sum, which has been raised from the sales of her beauty brand Kylie Cosmetics’ birthday Collection that launched last month, to the organisation.
The raven-haired beauty shared an image of a note she had penned to share the news of her generous offering.
It read: ”Hi guys, I wanted to say a huge THANK YOU to everyone for helping me raise money for Teen Cancer America.
”I am donating $500,000 from sales of my birthday collection and this donation will help improve the lives of teens and young adults with cancer. Thank you all for helping me make a difference.”
The beauty mogul captioned the post, which was uploaded on her Instagram account: ”Thank you @teencanceramerica, @harryhudson, and of course YOU guys for helping me celebrate my birthday in such an impactful way! (sic).”
This news comes after Kylie posted a video of her with Teen Cancer America ambassador Harry Hudson, which saw her announce she would be making a donation to the charity in due course, although she had yet to confirm an amount.
The ‘Keeping Up With the Kardashians’ star has not only supported Teen Cancer America charity through her company, but has previously donated proceeds raised from her cosmetics company to Smile Train, which is a company that provides infants with cleft palates reparative surgery and treatment.
And Kylie has recently travelled to Peru to visit those suffering with the condition, and although she was told she has helped 13,000 people she still found the trip ”heartbreaking”.
Speaking on a new episode of her spin-off show ‘Life of Kylie’, she said: ”It’s amazing to know that the money that I’m donating is actually doing something and changing lives. But it is heartbreaking to know that there are so many people who just don’t have the resources.”
