In case you were unaware, Kim Kardashian has her own eBay store where she sells personal items to fans or anyone else who wants to buy her designer wares.
Yesterday, the reality TV star announced on her website that she’d be donating the proceeds of a current eBay auction to a disaster relief fund for Typhoon Haiyan, similarly to Victoria and David Beckham!
She posted the following about her decision:
“Hi guys, this is a very special auction because a portion of the proceeds of my eBay auction are going to International Medical Corps, which is a nonprofit organization that provides critical health services on remote islands where families are struggling to access medical care and basic resources like food, clean drinking water and vital medications. The proceeds will go directly to the communities they’re serving in the Philippines and will help typhoon survivors get access to medical care and ultimately save lives. My prayers and thoughts are with those affected by the typhoon. Check out my eBay auction here and support those who need our help in the Philippines. Xo”
However, when you actually go to her eBay store, it’s very clear that the “portion” Kimmy’s donating is only 10% of her proceeds.
It’s a little bit awkward that she and her family run a multi-million dollar empire, and all she’s publicly giving up is a mere fraction of her eBay profits to support people devastated by such a tragic natural disaster.
But she should still be applauded for donating anything at all!! And hey, maybe she’s secretly doing more for the victims than we know.
The Biebs recently joined forces with his friend, Milk Tyson, tagging a wall, and is now planning on auctioning off spray cans with a signed photo of the graffiti, and then donating the proceeds to an unnamed Philippines relief group.
According to a source, Justin is looking to "get involved" with the relief efforts involved with Typhoon Haiyan's destruction, and we could not be more impressed.
Nice work, Justin. Way to turn one of your many controversies into an act of kindness! Finally, some vandalism without scandal…ism!
Okay, so we admit that was a minor rhyme crime.
Perhaps you could go shirtless for a charity or sell vials of your spit for a good cause? Just

Mother Nature, why are you so harsh?!
The Philippines were hit by Super Typhoon Haiyan, which is thought to be one of the most powerful storms ever! And now there are more details, though specifics are still coming in.
Sadly, with all of that power came deaths and destruction of property. There are only estimates about how many people were killed, but the town of Tacloban alone is thought to have 1,000 people who fell victim to the typhoon. And that's only one place.

Our hearts are so sad for everyone involved, and our thoughts go out to them!
This is such a horrible tragedy — and it might not even be over!
The Philippines has been hit hard by Typhoon Haiyan which tore through areas like Samar. It then continued on to hit much of central Philippines.
Reports are out that at least four people have died and hundreds of thousands have had to flee from their homes due to the danger and destruction that took place early on Friday. Power is out in many areas and flights have been canceled as the storm raged through.
Typhoon Haiyan reportedly passed through the Philippines at 25 mph with wind gusts blowing as high as 235 mph!
And while the power and speed of the storm sounds horrible, there was the silver lining in that this means it passed through the area quickly, which decreased the impact of rain and landslides, which often leads to deaths.
More than 700,000 people had been evacuated before the storm hit, but there were still
