(Newser) – It took her a few months, but Kim Kardashian is finally dealing with that awkward predicament of what to do with a bunch of possibly-used wedding gifts after your 72-day marriage dissolves. Answer: She's keeping the gifts, but donating the money to charity, as she had promised to do in the immediate wake of her divorce. As rumored, Kardashian donated twice the value of the gifts—$200,000—to the Dream Foundation. TMZ has a picture of the letter she sent to every guest.

"I would like to thank you for your generous and thoughtful wedding gift. It has taken me some time to pull everything together but I wanted to let you know that the money for every gift received by me at my wedding has been donated to the Dream Foundation," she writes. A note from the foundation adds that "Kim Kardashian has made a donation to the Dream Foundation in honor of your generous wedding gift. Kim felt that this was the most fitting way to acknowledge and pay forward your gift with the same compassion and kindness it was intended."
