Kylie Jenner's Charity Lip Kit Raised $500,000 USD For Smile Train
She presented the check to the organization herself.
Last September Kylie Jenner revealed a pale pink lip kit shade named “Smile.” It was dedicated to World Smile Day with proceeds to be donated to Smile Train – an organization that corrects cleft lip in children in developing countries.
It turns out “Smile” – in its two limited runs – sold out almost instantly and raised $500,000 USD in total. The 19-year-old presented Smile Train with a check that went onto benefit 638 children.
Smile Train CEO Susannah Schaefer told PEOPLE it was a “very special partnership”:
“Smile Train has been aware of Kylie’s generous heart and her commitment to helping children through her #IAmMoreThan social media campaign and her many visits to children’s hospitals. Kylie has a beautiful smile herself, yet we were most impressed with her selflessness, huge heart and extremely generous giving spirit.”
