Kim Kardashian Faces Criticism Over Charity Auction With Only 10 Percent of Proceeds Going to Charity

Good publicity's looking not so much

 Another day, another controversy in the Kardashian bubble.

This time, it is Kim Kardashian who has come under fire for her latest eBay Giving Works auction in which a "percentage of the proceeds" will aid victims of the Philippines typhoon disaster. But it's the key word "percentage" that has many crying foul, as just 10 percent, while fully disclosed, will go to the International Medical Corps relief efforts.

"The proceeds will go directly to the communities they're serving in the Philippines and will help typhoon survivors get access to medical care and ultimately save lives," Kardashian wrote on her auction page. "My prayers and thoughts are with those affected by the typhoon."
