Kim Kardashian has donated $50,000 to
The Trevor Project to help troubled LGBT teens.
California-based The Trevor Project
focuses on crisis and suicide prevention efforts for gay, lesbian,
bisexual and transgender (LGBT) youth. The non-profit's Lifeline is
the nation's only 24-hour, toll-free confidential suicide prevention
hotline for gay and questioning young people.
Kardashian, a co-star of the E! reality
series Kourtney and Kim Take New York, picked The Trevor
Project as her charity when she participated in a charity event
organized by investment bank Cantor Fitzgerald in September. The
bank gives away millions of dollars in honor of their employees who
died during the September 11 terrorist attack.
“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,” an unnamed source told RumorFix.com.
Other celebrities supporting The Trevor
Project include actors Daniel Radcliffe, Neil Patrick Harris, Chris
Colfer and Darren
Criss and singers Adam Lambert, Katy Perry and Lady
