And when Kim was asked how she deals with critics who say all of this is a stunt to gain media attention for her fashion brands, she says she's able to shrug that off without a second thought.

But Kim's thick skin didn't stop keyboard warriors from 'talking the talk', as one wrote: "No rich person ever does something for someone else just to be nice. It's got some alterior [sic] motive behind it.

"That being said I'm glad when they do anything at all regardless of the reason because most of them dont. They donate to things rich ppl [sic] enjoy and call it charity."

Another attacked the reality TV star, tweeting: "They do but they don't need a camera on them to do it. Kim only does this stuff to make herself feel better about her empty life."

While a third wrote: "Kim Kardashian is always pushing her brand."

But Kim spoke out, telling E! News: "I'm very used to criticism so nothing really phases me.

"I'm one of those non-human souls that can really deal with it. However, I really genuinely just stay focused on the cases and the people, and am extremely compassionate, and no, I'm not doing it for publicity. I really do care, and spend 20 hours a week away from my family and my kids, every single day."
