(GoRealNewsNow.com) – In a move that has outraged many, Vice President Kamala Harris’ stepdaughter, Ella Emhoff, has initiated a fundraising effort for the benefit of Gaza’s youth, according to information obtained by The New York Post.
Ella Emhoff, 24 — the daughter of Second Gentleman Doug Emhoff, who practices Judaism — has used her Instagram profile to endorse a donation campaign “supporting urgent relief for Gaza’s children.”
This philanthropic initiative omits any reference to the numerous Israeli children who were victims, among the 1,400 Israelis who lost their lives due to the actions of Hamas militants on October 7.
Her promotional activities present this fundraising request to an audience of 315,000 followers on Instagram.
So far, the drive has accumulated upwards of $7.8 million, conducted by the Palestinian Children’s Relief Fund. This organization, a non-profit headquartered in Kent, Ohio, reported earnings surpassing $21 million in 2021, as revealed by ProPublica.
There is no definitive information regarding any personal contributions Ella Emhoff may have made to this cause.
“It’s of tremendous concern and I find it abhorrent,” declared Rep. Jeff Van Drew (R-NJ). “To be honest with you, I am kind of stunned by it. It’s disturbing to the maximum degree.”
Van Drew, who holds a position on the House Homeland Security Committee, conveyed his certainty that Hamas would likely intercept any humanitarian funds directed to Gaza.
In discussions with the press, Ella Emhoff has consistently maintained that she does not identify with Judaism.
“Ella is not Jewish,” a representative for the Second Gentleman’s daughter affirmed to The Forward in 2021. “It’s not something she grew up with. Ella truly has no qualms with the faith, but she does not want to speak on behalf of Judaism, as she does not celebrate herself.”
Emhoff, the biological child of film producer Kerstin Emhoff, has ventured into fashion modeling, notably making bold appearances at New York Fashion Week.
She maintains a close bond with her stepmother, who publicly celebrated her through an X posting following Emhoff’s graduation from Parsons in 2021.
“Keep dreaming with ambition and there is nothing you cannot achieve,” Harris posted.
In the previous month, President Biden declared his intention to allocate $100 million in “humanitarian assistance” to Palestinians, a declaration that was quickly met with criticism from Republican figures aiming to contest the 2024 presidential elections.
Among those objecting to this decision were former President Donald Trump, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, former UN Ambassador Nikki Haley, Senator Tim Scott of South Carolina, and North Dakota Governor Doug Burgum.
