Kylie Jenner Celebrates Her Birthday By Giving Back & Proves She's More Mature Than You May Think — PHOTO
It seems like everybody has an opinion about the youngest member of the Kardashian-Jenner clan. From causing controversies with her wardrobe to sparking outrage about the size of her lips, Kylie Jenner knows how to get people talking. Another point of discussion? Jenner's upcoming birthday. On Monday, Kylie Jenner will finally be 18, aka an actual adult. You're probably thinking one of two things: 1) Wow, she's not 27 years old already? or 2) She's still such a youngin'! But let's give Jenner some credit: She's more mature than you may expect, and her pre-birthday celebrations prove that. Over the weekend, Jenner visited Children's Hospital Los Angeles to give gifts to the patients. Talk about selfless — and dare I say, mature?
On Saturday, the soon-to-be birthday girl shared a photo where she's shown to have an entire cart of presents in tow. Instead of focusing on the gifts that she'll receive on her big day, she decided to give back and share that joy with other kids who aren't as fortunate. People are always lamenting about how Kylie Jenner is growing up "too fast" (she's even said so herself!), and while maybe that's true in some aspects, it's admirable that she's wise enough to look beyond herself and make her birthday mean something more.
This isn't the first time the youngest Kardashian-Jenner took the spotlight off herself and shined it on this important cause. Back in May, Jenner auctioned off her clothing on eBay and donated the proceeds to Children's Hospital LA. It's clear that she really does care about creating a positive impact, and in doing so, hopefully will inspire her fans to do the same. Her influence on today's youth is about much more than just blue hair dye or silly Snapchats, and it looks like she knows it.
Of course, her birthday weekend wouldn't be complete without family festivities. Various members of the Kardashian krew shared selfies and well wishes on Instagram from a party on Saturday night. I'm guessing Jenner will continue celebrating the occasion on Monday, and it's known that she's planning for it to all culminate with a massive party in Montreal. But you know what? She deserves it. Welcome to adulthood, Kylie!
