Wendy Williams Partners with New Foundation Following Her Devastating Split from Cheating Husband

Just like her marriage to Kevin Hunter, Wendy Williams’ charity organization, The Hunter Foundation, has also now been dissolved. Wendy Williams shocked the world when she announced her split with Kevin Hunter two months ago, amidst series cheating allegations.

Hunter and Williams were married for more than two decades before they decided to part ways. While tabloids had been reporting marital troubles between the couple long before Wendy confirmed the separation, it is speculated that the news of Hunter’s mistress giving birth to their illegitimate child proved as the last nail in the coffin.

Unfortunately, the foundation they built together became part of the collateral for their broken relationship. Following the announcement of their foundation’s dissolution, Williams assured the public she’ll still support the causes she holds close to her heart.

As of this writing, the renowned TV host is already launching a new foundation in the near future, this time choosing to do it solo.

The New Foundation

A week after Williams announced the disbandment of The Hunter Foundation, the renowned TV host stated she’s set to support another foundation that’s close to her heart. Together with her son, Kevin Hunter Jr., they partnered with SNAX-Sational Brands to provide backpacks to homeless children in New York City.

Not only that, but the partnership also aims to provide shelter to the homeless people and help the impoverished community to thrive. The foundation will secure its funds from selling products like candies and cookie pops, and pasta chips, and any donations made to the charity.

The Cause

The funds they accumulate will support Wendy Williams’ favorite charity, Operation Backpack which is working on improving educational standards for impoverished communities where thousands of children don’t get the opportunity to go to school due to poverty or domestic violence.

Williams says that heart mourns for these children, so she wants to help them in her own way. While the organization’s initiative might not be as impactful as many would think, having a backpack is essential for these children.

A bag, which carries children’s’ school supplies, serves as a symbol of hope and motivation for them to work hard for a brighter future. A small but impactful deed that can go a long way in shaping these kids’ future.

The renowned TV host reveals she'll continue to support foundations since her parents instilled her the values of gratitude and giving back to the society.
