Kim Kardashian is donating to help Puerto Rico after Hurricane Maria crisis
The situation happening in Puerto Rico is heartbreaking, to say the least. Hurricane Maria hit them hard, leaving most of the island without power and phone service. Homes have been destroyed, food and medicine has been scarce, and at least 13 people have died. But folks, including celebs, have really been trying to do their part to help out--and Kim Kardashian is the latest. That's right, Kim Kardashian.

The reality star recently shared a devastating photo of Puerto Rico with a heartbreaking caption.

Honestly, it's inspiring to see someone like Kim donate towards Puerto Rico's Hurricane Maria relief, mainly because it's easy for us to forget that rich celebs like her actually care about what's happening in the world. Sure, she might be making tons of money and living off fame, but the fact that she's willing to take that money to help others is encouraging to see.
Kim Kardashian made $51 million in 2016. She can afford to give a fraction of that to those in need. I'm just saying.
This isn't the first time Kim donates for a good cause. Back in August she pledged to donate $500,000 towards Hurricane Harvey.
Jennifer Lopez has also stepped up to help Puerto Rico and recently donated $1 million from her Las Vegas residency towards Hurricane Maria relief. Her ex-husband Marc Anthony and current boyfriend Alex Rodriguez, even teamed up with New York Yankees and Major League Baseball to help raise money.
Jennifer Lopez ranked #65 on Forbes' list of "The World's Highest-Paid Celebrities," bringing in around $37 million. She can also afford to give some of her earnings to those in need in Puerto Rico.
In fact, most of them have helped in more ways than President Donald Trump has. But that's a whole other conversation.
