This new mom is in the giving spirit! Kim Kardashian woke up in the middle of the night to breastfeed her 5-day-old baby boy, Saint West, and, on a whim, decided to donate 1,000 pairs of shoes to charity.

The idea came to the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star, 35, while she was watching a cable TV show. "I'm up breastfeeding & watching this show Dish Nation," she wrote on Twitter on Thursday, Dec. 10, at 12:20 a.m. PT. "I heard the cutest story of a girl who is trying to find 1000 pairs of shoes to donate to this charity Soles For Souls! They helped her during Hurricane Katrina. I think I know the designer of Shoe of the Year Award!"

Kardashian then made a split-second choice with her husband, Kanye West — who won the Shoe of the Year award for his Yeezy Boost sneakers on Dec. 2 — to donate the entire portion of shoes the girl was looking for. "Kanye and I would love to donate those 1000 shoes to Soles For Souls," she tweeted. "So whoever you are…these shoes are for you! We will contact Soles For Souls! You reached your goal, so proud of you!!! xoxox"

The only flaw in the plan is that the mother of two doesn't know where or who to send the kicks to. "I've been looking online to find this little girl so we can let her know the shoes are on their way…but can't seem to find her," she wrote, adding, "Can u help me find the girl who is trying 2 get 1000 pairs of shoes by Christmas?"







Soles4Souls is a disaster relief organization that was founded in 2004 after the Indian Ocean tsunami.
