Kim Kardashian

I'll DOUBLE The Value

of Wedding Gifts for Charity

Kim Kardashian
is keeping the blender and the gravy boat, but she's donating twice what she snagged in wedding gifts to a really good charity ... TMZ has learned.

We obtained a letter -- sent to every guest at the Kim K/Kris Humphries wedding. Kim says, "I would like to thank you for your generous and thoughtful wedding gift. It has taken me some time to pull everything together but I wanted to let you know that the money for every gift received by me at my wedding has been donated to the Dream Foundation ..."

Sources tell us ... Kim estimates the total cash value of the all the gifts to be around $100k, but she's cut a check for twice that amount to the Dream Foundation.

Bottom line -- the Dream Foundation gets a lot of cash, and Kim can still make a mean margarita.

Doesn't anyone at TMZ want to call Kim out on the tax advantages of doing this... She received 100k of gifts she specifically wanted and looks great bc she gives 2x the amount but will actually save 100k on her taxes

I'm just amazed by Kim! Return the gifts. I'm sure you made a list of who sent what for the thank you cards. It does not matter that you double the donation (and recieved a tax right off) for your gifts. The gifts go back to your family and friends, they can return them and get THEIR money back. Nice to see you let the media have a copy of YOUR agreement. I really don't wish any of this family ill will. You have a lot which would enable you to do the right thing...return the gifts bottom line.

She made the donation...Are not Wedding Gifts given to both husband and wife...Was Kris included in the decision and if so he should be included in the statement, Example: Kris and I decided, etc...Again, all about her...

Kris should have realized he didn't have to marry her in order to plug her!

someone should have given her an etiquette book. it is inappropriate to keep the gifts. she turned the whole wedding into a profit-making sham, then made a "donation" so she had a tax write off. she would not have to pay taxes on the wedding gifts. did she share her ill-gotten gains with kris? of course not.

Kim you have plenty of money - why didn't you return the gifts? This speaks volumes to your character. Plus if you wanted to do something good to make up for your selfish-fake ways, was $200,000 enough? Or is that the amount you need for your tax write off?

She should consider supporting a charity that checks thank you notes for grammatical errors.

I bet she gets a nice tax write-off for a $200k donation to charity.

This is not about a act of kindness!, this is about a big TAX WRITE-OFF! And only SHE gets to benefits from her tax write off not the guest that gave her the money...
