Khloe Kardashian

Rescues Tigers with One Finger

1/3/2012 5:40 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

010312_khloe_kardashian_wwf_BN
Khloe Kardashian helped raise thousands of dollars to help save endangered tigers in the wild -- all while barely raising a finger ... TMZ has learned.

Here's how it happened -- Khloe posted a tweet New Year's Day, asking her 5.6 million followers to text "Tigers" to 20222 ... thereby donating $10 directly to the World Wildlife Fund to help save wild tigers across the world. It was that simple.

A rep for the WWF tells TMZ, the tweet got an overwhelming response -- with over 600 people texting "Tigers" in the last 2 days ... raising over $6,000 for tiger conservation. According to the rep, the massive surge in donations was a "huge jump" above the norm.

But the rep tells us, the Kardashian sister's charitable moment didn't end there -- Khloe also adopted a tiger online ... and she got her mom Kris to do the same.

According to the rep, the money raised by Khloe's tweet will go to science and research on the ground in regions of the world where tigers live ... to better understand how to protect them.

Finally, a reason to keep up with the Kardashians.

They must not have gotten the memo warning them that everything the Kardashians involve themselves in eventually turns to controversy or fraud.

Now we have to listen to all the "charity" work they do. Yeah, right. Just like Kim's recent travels for "charity". Sure, KK, what exactly did you do for ANYONE while on your trip? BS BS BS Boycott anything KarTRA$Hian.

Since Kim loves her fur so much, you'll probably see the adopted tigers made into a jacket.

There are thousands of charities that need support, but when a Kardashian is doing it, it's all of a sudden newsworthy? Bullsh*t. And tigers? Really? I've come to the conclusion that TMZ is obsessed with the Kardashian.

I wish you guys would stop posting stuff about this nasty skank HO! She's fat, ugly and is a total be-otch. She looks like a man trying to be a woman. Such a gross chick and her nasty skank sisters. Blah!

WAIT..."the money raised will go to science and research on the ground in regions of the world where tigers live ... to better understand how to protect them."
What the hell have they been doing up until now? Have they had no plan or prior knowledge. Rolex watches....

The other fingers were busy navigating through a bag of Doritos.

She was a pig this morning, and she'll be a pig tomorrow morning.

A little too late for trying to look good. Enough with the Kardashians! If Khloe really cared about animals/wildlife she would tell her soulless sister to STOP WEARING FUR. TMZ please stop reporting on this lame family. I am so sick of them and so sick of how fake they are

Somehow she has to be making a buck off of this.
600 out of 5.6 million is not exactly an overwhelming response. And just who are the 5.6 million morons who follow this idiot? Deport them now and raise the country's collective IQ.

I love Khloe. I may hate the rest of that family, but Khloe (and the younger Jenner girls) seem to have common sense, huge hearts, and actually quite lovely girls considering they were raised by that awful woman and have Kim as a sister and role model. I think Bruce has a lot to do with it.
