Although the Kardashians were not tagged in Hart's original post, Kris Jenner and her daughters answered his plea within a day, adding how she and her family were so moved by the "heartbreaking footage" of the flood victims.

Kim Kardashian West, Khloe Kardashian, and Kylie Jenner echoed their mother's sentiments online by sharing their generous donation and telling their fans how they, too, can help.
