Kim Kardashian Criticized For Donating Just 10 Percent Of ?charity Auction? To Typhoon Victims

This time, it is Kim Kardashian who has come under fire for her latest eBay Giving Works auction in which a percentage of the proceeds will aid victims of the Philippines typhoon disaster. But its the key word percentage that has many crying foul, as just 10 percent, while fully disclosed, will go to the International Medical Corps relief efforts. The proceeds will go directly to the communities theyre serving in the Philippines and will help typhoon survivors get access to medical care and ultimately online save lives, Kardashian wrote on her auction page. My prayers and thoughts are with those affected by the typhoon. However, crisis communications expert Glenn Selig is just one of many disturbed by the slim donation percentage and told FOX411 that typically most bidders assume the majority goes to the stated cause. When you say something is for the charity, the assumption is much more than 10 percent http://www.kiwibox.com/elroyajlm/blog/archive/2013/10/0/ goes to charity. And when the charity angle is leveraged to boost bidding or to drum up news coverage, when only 10 percent goes to charity people likely will be taken, he said. It is wrong to mislead the public. Sources tell Fox411 that Kardashian does make a profit from the auction which ended on Sunday but contrary to multiple reports, it isnt 90 percent.
