Kanye, Kim ask for donations to Lurie Hospital instead of baby gifts

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are urging family members and friends that in lieu of sending baby gifts, they send donations to Chicago’s Lurie Children’s Hospital.

Lurie’s has confirmed – saying, “Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago would like to extend its sincerest gratitude to Kim Kardashian and Kanye West for their thoughtfulness and support of the hospital.”

The hospital also said in a statement that all funds donated on Kim and Kanye’s behalf will be directed to the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit Fund.  That helps care for the most critically-ill babies and their families.

The couple apparently notified friends and family about their decision after fake baby registries surfaced online.

Kardashian is due in July.

    How generous!!! My son was the first occupant in one of the rooms in the NICU. We spent 40 nights there last June. The generosity of the donors touched my soul and gave us hope. My little guy is almost one & healthy as can be!

    It's actually nothing to them. In reality, they' probably rather not be bothered by an influx of gifts from people who are nowhere near their income level. Like when Beyonce and her entorage took over the entire floor of the hospital when their child was born, I recall that parents and family of other babies born there at that time had trouble getting past their security to see their new life. Freaking so-called celebrities.
    If they really want to do something stand-up, they should get married and give the child an honest name.
