LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA: Kim Kardashian received the 'Giving Tree Award' for her support of the nonprofit organization over the period of more than 10 years and her contribution to its growth at the Baby2Baby Gala. The annual Gala of the charity, Baby2Bay, which helps underprivileged children all over the world, took place on Saturday, November 12, in Los Angeles.
'The Kardashians' star told ET she was "excited" to be a part of the ceremony as she walked down the red carpet wearing a stylish pink cutout dress by Balenciaga. A montage of numerous celebrities stating why Kim deserved the honor was displayed before she took the stage to accept. Among the celebrities who spoke about the founder of KKW were Chris Rock, Serena Williams, Katy Perry, Gwyneth Paltrow, Ryan Seacrest, Hillary Clinton, and others. It goes without saying that her own family also attended, including her mother, Kris Jenner, her sister Kylie Jenner, and her daughter, North.
Kim also received a lot of praise from her fans online, with one writing, "Congrats Kim...success is not about self but is about reaching back and helping others, being a door keeper by blessing others...helping others is the language of heaven and pleases the heart of God. Stay blessed!" One proud fan wrote, "Congrats on your 'Giving Tree' award, fave! Prada you," and this other fan congratulating Kim wrote, "Congratulations for your hard work and recognition and for the beautifully appropriate way you dressed." Another fan wrote, "Awesome work on providing the necessities for babies!

Tyler Perry handed Kim the award and in her acceptance speech, she discussed what justice means to her and essentially said that it meant doing what is right regardless of the circumstances. Kim stated, "You don't have to break the internet or have millions of followers to make a difference. Everyone in this room has the power."
Even the smallest efforts help, Kim said, adding that "Our support is needed more now than ever, to close the necessity gap and join the fight for change." Kim expressed her appreciation for both her mother and her late father, renowned attorney Robert Kardashian.
"And I would like to thank my parents," Kim said. "My mom Kris, my backbone, the heartbeat of our family, for showing me what it means to put her children and caring for others first. And my dad, who taught me at a very young age, compassion, gratitude and the importance of using this blessed life that we have been given to bless others."
Kim mentioned her four children, North, 9, Saint, 6, Chicago, 4, and Psalm, 3, saving the finest for last. She called her children "the people I think about, care about and obsessed over more than anyone else."
In the fundraising segment, the celebrity-studded event unsurprisingly brought in well over $12 million. Together with co-founders Emma and Jems Grede, two of Kim's SKIMS partners, she made a $1 million donation and Perry also contributed, giving $500,000.
