Maybe you've never seen a single episode of the "Keeping Up With the Kardashians" show. Or maybe you have but you're not a fan. Yet whether you adore the Kardashians or not is irrelevant. Because the truth is there are lots of positive things the Kardashians did for this world...
They’ve Donated Millions
While the exact number is unknown, the Kardashians have donated millions to worthy causes like the American Foundation for AIDS Research, the Breast Cancer Research Foundation, and the Alzheimer’s Association. And that’s just the tip of the proverbial iceberg.
Kris and Kim Helped Haitian Women
In 2011, Kris and Kim flew to Haiti to help victims of the earthquake that wrecked the entire country. The mother-daughter duo worked with the "We Advance" charity, which was set up by the momager to help Haitian women improve their lives. Kim also donated money and visited several orphanages in the wake of so much devastation.
Kim's Typhoon Haiyan Relief
In 2013, Kim announced she would hold an Ebay auction to donate 10 percent of her earnings to the Philippines’ Typhoon Haiyan relief efforts. She allegedly donates 10 perecent of her earnings to charity every year, which is pretty impressive.
Kim Volunteered at a Kid’s Hospital
For years, Kim Kardashian has volunteered at Children’s Hospital of Los Angeles on a regular basis. Aside from visiting sick children, giving them gifts and painting their nails, she donates the proceeds from her Ebay clothing sales to the hospital.
Kylie Fed the Homeless
Busy Kylie Jenner took a break to feed the hungry in 2014. While she was still dating Tyga, Kylie and the rapper volunteered at the LA mission off of Skid Row and served Thanksgiving dinners to homeless people. They also brought a wheelbarrow loaded with toys to the kids staying at a hospital.
They Support Trans Rights
It was a rough road for Caitlyn Jenner when she transitioned. But, thankfully, she had the love and support of most of her family. Obviously, this taught the reality family’s fans that the best way to cope with a situation like Jenner's is with love and understanding.
Boxing for Charity
Kim and her brother Rob participated in boxing matches in 2009 to raise money for the Dream Foundation, which supports terminally ill people and their families. But these weren’t soft blows. Kim ended up with a black eye.
They’re Pro Interracial Relationships
While most TV shows and movies portray families of a specific race, the Kardashians have taught the world to be open-minded with interracial relationships. There’s Kim, who’s with Kanye. (Even Kanye believes that his relationship with Kim wasn't fully accepted until they appeared on their infamous Vogue cover.) Until recently, Khloe was with Tristan Thompson, and Lamar Odom before that. Kylie is with Travis Scott, and was with Tyga before that.
Education on the Armenian Genocide
Kim, Kourtney, Khloe and Rob knew their Armenian father, Robert Kardashian, was outspoken about their heritage and the 1915 Armenian genocide. So they made it their mission to bring attention to this dark time in human history. Before the reality TV family visited the country on the 100-year anniversary of the massacre, many of their fans had never heard of the genocide.
Kim Asked People to Donate
When Kim was six months pregnant with North, she asked people to donate to Lurie Children’s Hospital in Chicago. The money went toward the treatment of babies who are ill. After giving birth to baby North, Kim again asked for donations in lieu of gifts.
Khloe Saved Endangered Tigers
In 2013, Khloe Kardashian teamed up with the World Wildlife Fund on Global Tiger Day to raise awareness of the organization's campaign to save wild tigers. She also recorded personalized thank-you videos for donors and offered a prize to fly one lucky donor to LA and take them on a shopping spree at Dash, which she and her sisters used to own.
They’re Open About Fertility Issues
Kim showed the world that anyone can go through fertility issues. She documented her fertility treatments on "KUWTK" and shared the emotional trials she went through trying to get pregnant. She even told Glamour magazine, "Meeting people at my fertility doctor's office who are going through the same things I'm going through, I thought, 'Why not share my story?'"
Kim and Kanye Donated More Than 1,000 Shoes
A girl named Amelia Flores set a goal to find 2,000 pairs of shoes to donate. When Kim and Kanye got wind of this worthy endeavor, they donated more than 1,000 pairs of shoes. Now is that heartwarming or what?
Kim Surprised a Make-A-Wish Fan
In 2015 Kim joined forces with the Make-A-Wish Foundation so she could connect with Anissa, a fan who was facing a life-threatening condition. The beautiful moment undoubtedly gave the little girl a reason to smile. Who knew Kim was such a softy?
Kim Took Her Biggest Fans to Brunch
Kim flew some of her biggest fans to a brunch at the Four Seasons hotel in California. The fans also got a nice surprise when Kanye and little North West showed up. We’re sure everyone had a blast as there were plenty of photo ops and unforgettable moments.
They Embrace Curvy Figures
Tons of women would love to trade places with the curvaceous Kim Kardashian. But this wasn't always the norm. Kim has proven that you can and should love and accept your curves. Even her sisters, Khloe and Kylie, have embraced their curvy assets by wearing body-hugging dresses to show women of all ages that beauty comes in all body types.
Caitlyn Gave Her Shoes Away
Caitlyn Jenner's impact on transgender rights is major. But not only does she fight for the LGBT community, she's also willing to give her fans the shoes off of her own feet. While Caitlyn was touring the LGBT Center of Los Angeles, a transgender fan caught her attention by saying, "Girl, those are some fierce pumps." Fortunately, Jenner's admirer wore a size 13 just like she does.
Kim Likes to Tip Big
Kim met a fan for lunch at New Orleans’ Brennan’s. She paid for the entire meal and then left an uber-generous $300 for the server, who was undoubtedly very grateful for the 150-percent tip.
Women Can Be in Charge
Kris Jenner has not only done a superb job at managing six kids, but she's been the backbone of the entire family. There would be no "KUWTK" without her, which just goes to show you that her "momager" title is well deserved. Not only is she a force to be reckoned with, but she's living proof that women can be their own bosses and rule the world.
They Teach Women to Overcome Obstacles
The Kardshians are no strangers to heartache and sorrow. They've been through some seriously hard times, like Kim’s robbery in Paris, her private tape getting leaked, a messy divorce and Khloe’s issues with Tristan Thompson. They’ve handled it all with compassion and grace.
They Support Their Siblings
The Kardashians have taught us that, despite a few minor disagreements here and there, this family will always support and love each other. They’ll even stand strong during scandals and keep the naysayers on social media at bay, proving family comes first no matter what.
