For 124 years American charity Union Rescue Mission has been feeding the homeless over the Thanksgiving holiday weekend. 200 volunteers work tirelessly to feed the estimated 4000 Skid Row residents a heathy meal on a special weekend.The charity provides shelter for the homeless, clothing, medical and dental care, in addition to legal support, and has quite the regular celebrity following.
The Los Angeles born organisation was visited this weekend by philanthropic Hilton heiress Paris Hilton, who worked in the kitchen dishing up the turkey- based goods to the thousands of hungry men and women. After her stint at serving the public, she returned to her parent’s mansion for a Kathy Hilton feast!
She tweeted yesterday evening: “Thanksgiving is about appreciating what you have and giving back to those in need. Always enjoy my time making the holidays special for everyone at the Union Rescue Mission. Happy Thanksgiving.”
Meanwhile, across town Kendall Jenner and friends were spotted handing out sandwiches to the homeless they spotted on the street. Good work girls!
Yesterday Kendall Jenner‘s childhood dream of modelling for Victoria’s Secret became a reality, when she took to the runway as a “baby” angel alongside the experienced pros. The annual festivity, featuring performances by Ellie Goulding and Selena Gomez (Rihanna pulled out pretty last minute), will be broadcasted on CBS on December 8 in the USA, so prepare yourself to cry into a tub of Ben & Jerry’s whilst we ogle the waiter-thin goddesses.
Kendall, overcome with emotion, made her angelic debut alongside BFF Gigi Hadid, and has posted on social media in the last 24 hours “dreams came true tonight”, followed by “sorry I’m just all emotional and excited about what happened yesterday. Last one for now. Would not have wanted to share this moment with anyone else but you baby G”.
Whilst she requested the absence of her Kardashian clan, she invited Mum and Dad Kris and Caitlyn Jenner along, who made a rare public outing together. “So incredible!! Beyond proud of you @kendalljenner #dreamsdocometrue #proudmama #vsfashionshow,” Kris wrote on Instagram. Kendall told the New York Daily News behind the scenes: “I told them all to stay away. It was too much pressure and I was like, ‘Mom and Dad are good enough’. I just need the pressure off. There’s enough pressure as it is.” Hardly surprising considering she has banned the girls from several of her haute couture Chanel shows previously!
Big sister Khloe Kardashian praised her debut on Twitter: “My baby sisters dreams came true yesterday!!!! @kendalljenner Every great dream starts with a dreamer and you my love are a dreamer amongst Angels!!!! Proud of you baby girl!” Proud Dad Caitlyn, who initially had an issue with this style of modelling at the beginning of her career, wrote: “Last night my little angel fulfilled her dream as a little girl to walk in a show!” Congrats Kendall!
