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.

Raising a few thousand dollars won't undo your sweatshop karma. Sorry. Not.

Laughing all the way to the bank. Khloe reportedly makes $8000 per tweet. Giving $10 to charity is just basically insulting. It's even more insulting to call TMZ and have it become national news.

TMZ really? I guess all of the millions of truly generous people should make the news according to this kiss azz article about the Trashians. Stop it already, the public is so sick of the entire phony family. Thank you!

There is nothing more threatening to a man than a woman who is smart and attractive. We have to pretend you're both!

We all know that the Kardashian's don't do anything unless it brings them more publicity. So can 2012 be the year that TMZ only publishes stories on their charity donations? That way they can put their fame whoring and money to good use and will force them to be productive members of society.

SHUT THE **** UP. It sound like everyone who commented is obsessed with them since you get your ass on here and write things about them. They seem like they are doing a lot more to help then any of you no life having bitches, by the way the more you talk about them the more money they are make, so I think they don't give a rat ass about what you think.

While all of the Kardashian women are hot-to-the-eleventh.


None are hotter than Khloe - she's the bomb.

After all the money that family has made off of hard working people, she should have given a million herself instead of getting credit for getting other people to give money...and it's a tiny amount and TMZ gives it a huge headline.....remember when TMZ used to be cool???

WTF is wrong with you people!!?? This woman, who of the entire Kardashian tribe, has done nothing but been down to earth, honest, funds a charity she believes in and she gets knocked down for not being 95 lbs? What on earth does one thing have to do with the other? 80% of you are absolute IDIOTS. These tigers are endangered to a point that they will be extinct within a matter of years. But instead of you thanking her you make her feel like she has an agenda. I'm so disappointed. But nice job, Khloe.

Is this a favor to Harvey's buddy Ryan Seacrest? TMZ can't resist the "exclusive" information Pimp Mama Kris feeds them? Is E! paying TMZ? What's with all the worthless, constant updates about these famewhores? Enough is enough already.

Are the public this naive? Kardashians are MASTERS at manipulation and will do anything to salvage their lost fan base. All of a sudden Khloe is concerned about tigers? Please, just one more reason to dislike and distrust them. Pleased tigers have funding NOT PLEASED KARDASHIANS USED THEM TO WIN PUBLIC APPROVAL.
