Kanye West is not stopping, he continues to give to those in need and this time, he is giving half a million dollar as donation.
According to TMZ, THE $500,000 donation is for relief for the massive California wildfires. Their source is an Ellen DeGeneres Show insider who revealed Kim Kardashian-West would be appearing as a guest on the show, Wednesday.
The source says Kim will be promoting her Glam Bible, but the show will shift to the devastation in California. During this segment, Kim reveals that she and Kanye West wanted to help in any way they could. West used his Yeezy brand to help raise funds, and they came up with $500,000. On the show, Kim will be presenting Ellen with two checks. One $200,000 check to the California Community Foundation’s Wildfire Relief Fund, and another $200,000 check to the California Fire Foundation.
That last $100k check will be given to firefighter Michael Williams and his wife who will be on the show as well. They lost their home, but Williams still saved neighbors’ homes and will be caught off guard by the generous contribution.
This comes just after Kanye donated $150,000 to the family of Jemel Roberson. Roberson was killed by police while he was working as a security guard. Robertson stopped an armed gunman with a weapon of his own, but when police showed up, they shot and killed Roberson instead of the gunman. He had also earlier donated about $200,000 to Chicago Mayoral candidate Amara Enyia.
