Kim Kardashian is on her way to make the world a better place. One flight at a time. Kanye was right, his ex-wife wants to make a positive impact.

In collaboration with NY based Tzedek Association Kim and her brand SKIMS pooled in the money to charter a plane for 130 people in need from Pakistan to the Stansted Airport in London.

Rabbi Moshe Margaretten the founder of Tzedek says the businesswoman was quick to assist after speaking over a video chat. He has also worked with Kim in the past on criminal justice reform.

“Maybe an hour later, after the Zoom call, I got a text message that Kim wants to fund the entire flight,” Margaretten told the Associated Press.

The devastating state of Afghanistan has displaced thousands of people. Afghans have been desperately fleeing Kabul after the Taliban took over in August. Members of the developmental women soccer team were able to make it to neighboring Pakistan and get visas, but could not get a flight to UK until Kim and SKIMS stepped up.

Leeds United F.C. has also offered to support the team. We are glad that the girls made it along with other people in need. Next stop in their journey is a 10-day quarantine before starting fresh in the UK.
