Paris Launches Clothing Line,

Tries to Cure Cancer

8/17/2007 12:12 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step. 

Paris Hilton, who's boasted that she's a changed woman since leaving jail, is finally doing some charity work -- though it involves her own clothing line. Giving back is hot!

The heiress staged the launch of her new line at Kitson, of course. The mob at the store was given the option of buying a $100 voucher for Paris' clothing line which moved them to the front of the line. The event's ad trumpeted, "Paris will be on hand to help personally style each of her fans during her appearance." They make it sound like that's a good thing.

Kitson donated 20% of the entire day's profits to the Childrens Hospital Los Angeles.

WHEN MUCH IS GIVEN -- MUCH IS TOO REQUIRED --

AND 10% DOESN'T REALLY SAY MUCH.

SINCE SHE WAS BORN WITH "MUCH", COULDN'T SHE ACTUALLY AFFORD TO GIVE 90%, PAY THE 10% BALANCE IN TAXES AND NOT TAKE ANY PROFIT.

WHERE I CAME FROM IN MARYLAND -- THAT'S REAL CHARITY.

THE ARTICLE DIDN'T SAY WHERE THE 90% WAS GOING SO MAYBE IT'S GOING TO A DIFFERENT CHARITY. THESE THINGS THAT PARIS SAID SHE WANTED TO DO CANNOT HAPPEN OVER NIGHT OR IN JUST A FEW MONTHS. AT LEAST THIS IS A START WITH 10% GOING TOWARDS CHARITY.

I couldn’t help but laugh – and comment – when I read this. By proceeds do you mean 10% of the gross or net profit? 10% of the proceeds means that the buyer is donating to the Children’s Hospital – not Paris. Her profit margins are high to begin with. It’s just another marketing stunt to give her more attention and more money.

Of course the Children’s Hospital wouldn’t, and shouldn’t complain. And neither will Paris – when you trend the margins out, she will actually make more money. There is always some sleazy “hook” with Hilton. She is one of the most disingenuous people in front of the cameras today…bargain basement all the way.

Sorry, but we’ll continue to give money to charities from what we earn ourselves. It’s one way we can make sure all of it actually gets there.

If we all had our life under a microscope i don't think any of us would be considered an angel. I think its great that she took two cancer patients with her, what an experience it must have been for them. 10% is definetetly better then nothing, so all you haters should shut the hell up and take a look in the mirror!

Paris doesn't owe anything to anyone!
How much do you people sitting on your asses dissing other people give?
Oh , that's right, you have to get a job first.
Oh, that's right, you have to get a life first.

My son has cancer (ALL) Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia ...for 3 years now. I say whatever make these kidos fell better and can forget that they are sick for one day is all I ask for. NO ONE SAID She had to give her money to these kids. Do you Donate?So who cares if its only 10% I say its better than nothing. So before you open you pie hole of hate. What have you donated to these kids? Do you take time to hang out with them? Anything is better than nothing...right? Who care what she does on her own time. She still makes an effort to spend time with these children. Crap like this make people upset and say forget it. Dont push button unless its for a good reason. Oh by the way I'M NOT a big Paris fan. I just support any help for my child.

I completely DISAGREE with what all of you are saying. Do you have any idea how much she is actually giving with 10%. More than her sister donated with her clothing line, more than the olson sisters donate with their line..etc.

It is very generous of her to donate, and especially to the childrens hospital--where any gift no matter how much, is appreciated.

As far as taking cancer patients with her, im sure that was special for them, to be able to leave the hospital for a while for a little fun.

Lay off. She is doing good.

First of all she would only give to any charity if it were publicized and then she will be able to write it off on her taxes. She ain't giving a damn thing to anyone in the end. Would she give anything if it wasn't publicized? I think not. B-tch has an agenda. All about Paris. She don't give a F about kids with cancer.

FYI: She is expected to make more than 1 million dollars on this line.
Any idea what 10% of 1,000,000 is:

100,000
That amount will do a lot of good.

Oh how I'd love to see her back on Larry King Live again since she was going to be a changed person and all that. He'd eat her alive!!! She has changed and I didn't think it was possible but I think she just might be even more self-centered and sickening than she ever was before.
