Former First Daughter Ivanka Trump is once again defying the media narrative of the Trump family and has stepped in to help those in need by donating one million meals to refugees of war-torn Ukraine.

The one million meals reportedly ended up being 158,400 pounds of food.

Ivanka’s charitable act was done in partnership with the UPS Foundation and other organizations.

Giving Back

In an interview with Fox News, Ivanka Trump said,

“The Ukrainian people have shown inspiring courage and resilience during the invasion of their country by Russia. As is often the case, pain and hardship are disproportionately borne by the most vulnerable. With this food, I hope to provide a small source of comfort and nourishment for Ukrainians who are suffering so greatly.”

According to Fox, Trump donated hundreds of thousands of dollars to help supply the meals.

Ivanka’s Other Charitable Causes

Ivanka Trump is no stranger to helping those less fortunate.

Back in March, Trump helped out with a program called “Farmers To Families.” The program started by her father, President Donald Trump, enabled the Department of Agriculture to purchase produce, dairy, and meat from American farmers and distribute it to food banks, nonprofits, and other community and faith-based organizations.

Trump helped to distribute food boxes to local needy residents in Florida and a shelter for human trafficking survivors called The Lifeboat Project. Preventing human trafficking is a cause Ivanka Trump has helped out with several times. 

In September of 2020, she joined with former college football star Tim Tebow and then-U.S. Attorney General Bill Barr at a discussion in Atlanta on human trafficking. Barr stated that the Trump administration would be giving $100 million in grants to tribal and other local communities to prevent human trafficking.

Being Recognized By Non-Conservatives

Ivanka Trump is not alone in being recognized for the work she does on others’ behalf.

Back in February, her husband, former White House Advisor Jared Kushner, was nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize for his part in “negotiating four normalization deals between Israel and Arab nations known as the ‘Abraham Accords.”” 

Kushner was nominated by Harvard Law School professor emeritus Alan Dershowitz. Dershowitz, who is no conservative, was intellectually honest enough to admit that his nomination would not be popular among his fellow liberals, but felt it was deserved. He said of his nomination of Kushner,

“The Nobel Peace Prize is not for popularity. Nor is it an assessment of what the international community may think of those who helped bring about peace. It is an award for fulfilling the daunting criteria set out by Alfred Nobel in his will.”

In December of 2020, rumors swirled that Ivanka Trump was mulling a bid for the Senate, and since leaving New York for Florida, might be interested in becoming a primary challenger for incumbent Sen. Marco Rubio.

However, the rumors were quickly quelled. Trump said that the main drawback for running was that she considered Rubio a good friend and did not want to run against him.
