After being criticized for only donating 10 percent of her eBay charity auction to victims of the Phillipines typhoon, Kim says she actually donates much more all year

Kim KardashianKim Kardashian wants to set the record straight after being criticized for donating only 10% of her eBay charity auction to typhoon victims in the Philippines.

The E! reality star regularly auctions her used clothes, shoes and bags on eBay and blogged about a portion of proceeds benefitting typhoon survivors. Many were outraged when the fine print revealed only 10% actually went to charity.

Kanye West's girlfriend claims in a new blog post that she actually donates 10% of all of her income to charity year-round.

"I feel compelled to speak about something that is in my head and my heart," she writes. "Over the years, I've had to grow a thick skin. Being in the public eye, there are times I feel like I get criticized for any and everything I do. The problem comes in when I get attacked for giving and trying to help people."

Kim says her late father Robert Kardashian always emphasized being charitable, saying: "My dad always taught me the importance of giving back. I don't publicize everything I do to help charities and people all over the world. I do it because I want to. I do it because my dad taught me to. I do it because it's the right thing to do. So for people to attack me for giving 10% of my eBay auction sales to the people of the Philippines, that hurts."

"I do eBay auctions monthly and change the charity or church from time to time. I give 10% of all my earnings to charities, not just these eBay auctions," she clarifies. "Giving comes from the heart. We all need to be reminded of that this holiday season.
