The donation, made in Kardashian-West’s name, has gone to the prison reform orgs Cut 50, a “bipartisan effort” to reduce the number of people in prison; Buried Alive Project, which aims to dismantle “profoundly inhumane life without parole sentences handed down under federal drug law”; Equal Justice Initiative, which focuses on “racial injustice, advocates for equality, and creat[ing] hope for marginalized communities”; and the Anti-Recidivism Coalition, which “empowers formerly and currently incarcerated people to thrive.” On Twitter, Kardashian-West wrote: “[Kanye] donated $1 million to my favourite charities that work so hard on prison reform on my behalf from him and the kids. This makes my heart so happy!”

Kardashian-West has made prison reform a pet cause of hers over the past couple of years, making headlines when she visited the White House to ask President Trump to commute the life sentence of 63-year-old one-time drug offender Alice Marie Johnson. Since that first visit, Kardashian-West has advocated publicly for prison reform and held talks with White House administration, Jared Kushner, and more about the clemency process. In addition, the reality star-slash-mogul is currently filming a documentary about prison reform, set to air on Oxygen.

Aside from coordinating his wife’s birthday present, West himself has had a chaotic month — after weeks of delays and missed release dates, the rapper is supposedly releasing his ye follow-up Jesus Is King this Friday. He put the record up for pre-order last night, promising buyers exclusive access to a Kanye West event, and announced that he’ll play the record in full this evening in Los Angeles.
