International Medical Corps is a nonprofit organization that provides critical health services on remote islands where families are struggling to access medical care and basic resources like food, clean drinking water and vital medications, Kardashian wrote in her website.

According to businessinsider.com, the 10 percent “portion” is part of the fine print associated with the online selling of products including Marc Jacobs, Chanel, Dolce & Gabbana, and Prada.

One fan wrote, “If this is true, I feel you are using the victims of that disaster for your own personal gain.”

Another wrote, “It would seem that you can afford to sell off some of your used personal items, and then donate the complete profit to these poor unfortunate victims instead of using them to profit yourself.”
