ST LOUIS, MO–Operation Shower, in partnership with Babies“R”Us®, the Kardashian Sisters and their clothing line Kardashian Kids, today launch an online charity auction on Charitybuzz, the world’s leading charity auction site. Beginning at 1:00pm EST and continuing through October 28, visitors to the site at www.Charitybuzz.com/OperationShower will have the opportunity to bid on one-of-a-kind baby bibs and bodysuits customized by Kourtney Kardashian, Kim Kardashian West and Khloè Kardashian, creators of the Kardashian Kids collection, available exclusively at Babies“R”Us.
The Charitybuzz online auction items were created by the Kardashian sisters an Operation Shower event they recently hosted for 60 military moms-to-be. 100% of the net proceeds from the online auction will be donated to Operation Shower, a non-profit organization dedicated to honoring and celebrating military families by hosting over-the-top baby showers for military moms-to-be whose spouses are deployed, or in cases where a spouse has been seriously wounded in combat.
“For military women who are expecting a baby and whose spouses are deployed or soon to be deployed, the impending arrival of a child can be both exciting and stressful,” said LeAnn Morrissey, Founder of Operation Shower. “Operation Shower was created specifically to honor these courageous military moms for all they do at home that enables their spouses to proudly serve our country and defend our freedom. We want them to know how much they are loved and appreciated, and provide them with an opportunity to celebrate this special milestone together.”
“We are so pleased to be able to leverage our relationship with the Kardashian Kids line to help Operation Shower give back to military families,” said Kathleen Waugh, Chairman, Toys“R”Us Children’s Fund. “These one-of-a-kind baby bib and bodysuit designs are sure to be a hit with Babies“R”Us” customers, as well as fans of the Kardashian sisters.”

ABOUT KARDASHIAN KIDS
In March 2014, Kourtney Kardashian, Kim Kardashian West and Khloé Kardashian launched Kardashian Kids, an apparel and accessories collection designed for infants and girls up to 24 months. Each season, Kardashian Kids offers a new assortment of loveable styles from one-pieces, cozy caps and cuddlesome blankets, to stylish and functional two-piece sets, jackets and dresses in much-adored motifs, like the uniquely sweet take on the Kardashian’s signature animal print. In response to the overwhelming success of the debut collection earlier this year, Kardashian Kids has expanded its offerings and sizing to include toddlers starting September 2014.
