Kim Kardashian West Donates $500 to 1,000 People Affected by COVID

Kim Kardashian West knows 2020 has been a tough year financially for many people, so the reality star is trying to help ease some folks' burdens this holiday season by sending them cold hard cash.

Kardashian West revealed she partnered with CashApp to send 1,000 people money on Monday.

"Hey guys! Hey guys! 2020 has been hard and many are worried about paying rent or putting food on their table- I want to spread the love by sending $500 to 1000 people. Send me your $cashtag below with #KKWHoliday #partner," she tweeted.

Although Kardashian West didn't reveal any rules or stipulations about how to receive the money, dozens of people responded to the tweet with their own stories of how the events of the year have caused a financial strain on their households. Many people noted they could use the money to help get their kids holiday presents after having their hours cut at work or completely losing their jobs.

"I'm getting no hours now after getting my hours at work cut in half.. i could use it for bills piled up & for my boy as a mom, i feel like I'm failing. $haleywinning," one Twitter user wrote.

Some people said they would use the money to fund their own charity projects, including one person on Twitter who wanted the cash to help get more "survival boxes" full of PPE, toiletries and other necessities to homeless people.

I’m doing a fundraiser for the homeless and curating these “survival boxes” to help them get through winter and the 500 would go toward that!! $$lesadelina pic.twitter.com/nw9086JsRg

In March, Kardashian West announced her Skims shapewear brand was donating $1 million to struggling mothers and children who had been affected by COVID-19 in some capacity. "To support Mothers and Children in need during this time, I'm proud to announce @SKIMS is committed to donating $1M to families affected by COVID-19," she wrote in an Instagram post.

Kardashian West also participated in the All In Challenge, in which people could donate money for their chance to win lunch or dinner with a participating celebrity, in April. All proceeds generated from the challenge were used to help feed the hungry at the height of coronavirus lockdowns through organizations including Meals on Wheels, Feeding America, World Central Kitchen, America's Food Fund and No Kid Hungry.
