The model took to her Instagram account on her 20th birthday

(10.08.17) to announce in a video she will be giving some money from

Kylie Cosmetics to Teen Cancer America while sitting alongside her

friend and cancer survivor, Harry Hudson.

She added the caption: "I wanted to do something special to celebrate

my birthday. Today I'm donating a portion of the proceeds from all

sales on KylieCosmetics.com to @teencanceramerica, an amazing

organization who help improve the lives of teens and young adults with

cancer. (sic)"

Kylie also thanked Harry for educating her about the company, and

hopes the gesture will "make a difference".

She added: "Thanks to @harryhudson, for teaching me about this

organization and helping me make a difference!  I'm also giving away a

FREE makeup bag with every purchase over $60! @kyliecosmetics (sic)"

Harry praised his raven-haired pal for standing by him while he

underwent cancer treatment.

He said: "Kylie was right there by my side during all my chemo

treatments and together we are spreading awareness through her

products.

"Every hour a teen in the US gets diagnosed with cancer."

Teen Cancer America aim to help hospital and outpatient facilities

develop special units for teens with the disease.

Kylie launched Kylie Cosmetics in 2016 after the successful creation

of her liquid lipstick and lip liner duo, the Kylie Lip Kit.

This comes shortly after it was claimed the star's beauty business is

on track to be worth more than a billion dollars by 2020.
