Khloe Kardashian

Rescues Tigers with One Finger

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

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.

It really worked. I sent the text "Ass Clown" to that number and poof...her sister's on her way to Texas to watch the movers move stuff. That's 1 out of 3 (counting OJ butt-sniffer mommie), way better than 600 out of 5.6 million.

BARF. So calculated and predictable. Nothing sincere about any of the Kardashians and those who buy into any of it need to have their heads examined. Stupid little sheep people following idiots like they are Gods. Please.

My god. Kardashians USED Haiti for their bogus charity (for a tax write off) they never chipped a fake fingernail. Now using tigers?

Kardashians are still publically despised. This BS is still why.

Can you imagine the spin control these monsters have? How could this possibly be a TMZ headline story unless the Kardip****ians are in full spin, spin, spin mode?

Wow! That's amazing. This is why Chloe is my favorite Kardashian. I love the idea that she used her popularity for a good cause. Maybe Kim should learn more from her and share the wealth in one way or another! Goooooo Chloe!!!

$60...00? Just one of her fake boobs cost more than that. If she really wanted to help, why doesn't she put up some real money?

It's so OBVIOUS the Kardashians are paying out big bucks to all of these tabloid sites to keep their name in the spotlight. SO FRICKING obvious except to idiots. Anyone who supports this family is nuts. It's old; they are no longer valid. They are as plastic as all get out. We are all sick of them.

6 thousand dollars only? LOL she could have just written a check from her own personal account and wouldn't even miss it......oops, my bad, it's more damage control and publicity.

Any idea what they pay for a flight on a private jet? Or do they own one?

According to Steven Fry on QI - most of the tigers in the world belong to private zoos and most of those are in Texas. Weird or what?
