At the Baby2Baby Gala Presented by Paul Mitchell in Los Angeles on November 12, 2022, the non-profit organization announced that it was honoring the 41-year-old SKIMS founder with the coveted award. This award is presented to a woman who is in the public spotlight and demonstrates her commitment to helping children in need around the world.
From the organization’s inception, Kardashian has supported Baby2Baby by spreading awareness of the cause on its many platforms, enabling projects with its companies, and making personal donations.
In a statement, Baby2Baby Co-CEOs Norah Weinstein and Kelly Sawyer Patricof expressed their excitement at the news that Kim Kardashian will receive this year’s Giving Tree Award.
The co-CEOs went on to say that she has supported Baby2Baby for nearly a decade, and most importantly, she stood up for the organization during the height of the pandemic. During that time, she provided significant financial support, donating millions of dollars worth of clothing and personal hygiene products to families in their greatest need.
We are very grateful that she chose to raise awareness of our goal which is to provide children living in poverty with the basic necessities they need and deserve. Their platform is unrivalled.
There have been a number of renowned mothers who have been honored with this title and Kim Kardashian is one of them. Kardashian and her ex-husband Kanye West are the parents of four children Psalm, 3, Chicago, 4, Saint, 6, and North, 9.
In the past, some celebrities such as Chrissy Teigen, Vanessa Bryant, Kerry Washington, Gwyneth Paltrow, Jessica Alba, Jennifer Garner and Drew Barrymore have been honored with the Giving Tree Award.
