Since then, the target amount has ballooned likely because of the attention Kylie brought to it by posting the link on her IG Story. Context -it makes a world of difference.
Sam was recently in a bad car accident that left him with major brain injuries and in need of surgeries. He’s in the hospital now — and, of course, his medical bills are certain to be immense … so his family started a fundraiser, and his celeb clients have been plugging it.
Kylie wanted to get the word out as well, so she posted something on her IG story that led folks to the Gofundme, asking anyone who wanted or could to donate … while also sending kind words to Sam and his loved ones. She also donated herself — $5,000.
The original target amount was supposedly around $60k — but it has since been bumped because of the flood of donations that have poured in. The fund has raised north of $97k as of now.
For starters, anyone who follows Kylie and saw this wasn’t forced/obligated to do anything. Second … the logic that rich people/celebs are heartless heathens for trying to raise money when they could just as easily fund the whole damn thing is absurd. Hardly any celeb does that — even the richest among them — and it’s unreasonable to expect them to anyway.
Kylie, specifically, is dealing with all this horse crap is because she’s been tagged a billionaire and with that in mind — she should probably consider keeping these sorts of things on the because people are downright ridiculous.
