Kimora Lee Simmons and her kids flexed their charity muscles last week at a back-to-school event hosted in partnership with the Boys & Girls Clubs of America, Baby Phat, Family Dollar, Dollar Tree, and Crayola. The model was photographed with all five of her children at the giveaway event.
The Boys & Girls Club of America’s “Main Street Clubhouse” in Los Angeles was the location for Kimora’s back-to-school giveaway. The model’s sons – Kenzo, Gary, and Wolfe – were in attendance alongside Kimora’s daughters, Ming and Aoki. All five of her kids stood beside her for pictures at the event. Aoki even rocked a shirt from Baby Phat’s line of clothing.
“It just helps for us to be organized as best we can,” Kimora told the press when speaking of tips she would give parents who are preparing for back-to-school season. “I know we are just ready to get everybody everywhere and ready for kids just to get back to school,” the celebrity mom said. “Even the best mother will say, “Enough is enough. It’s time to go back,'” she added.
“I really think it’s about getting them back with a little style and flare and creativity, things that make them feel good,” Kimora shared of what she believed to be the most important element of sending kids back to school. “I really think it’s about putting your best foot forward and getting back into the swing of things,” she continued. “Even though it’s a stressful time, it’s also probably a very relieving time for the parents. So I want to help the parents get the kids off in style.”
Kimora Lee Simmons will send her son’s back to school in a few weeks. The model’s youngest daughter, Aoki, returns to Harvard University for another year of undergraduate studies in the fall. Ming Lee Simmons graduated from high school in 2018.
