#bethenny frankel knows what it means to run a successful business. But she's now proving that she also knows what it means to run a business that's full of heart and soul. Last year, Frankel decided to start a charity, where she would help women in need. This was something she wanted to do after going through a rough divorce from her ex-husband, Jason Hoppy. Jason was briefly featured on "The Real Housewives of New York" and everyone thought he was a complete sweetheart. However, after he learned that she wanted out of the relationship, he turned into an evil person. She started her charity, B Strong, to offer women the support they need to get out of similar situations.

But Bethenny recently did something amazing, as she learned of the devastation that Hurricane #Harvey caused in Houston. According to a new tweet, Bethenny Frankel is now revealing that she's selling out of her merchandise, as she's donating proceeds to people in need. She's been raising money over the past couple of days, and she recently revealed that they had reached around $30,000 in support. However, after reaching out to larger companies, the amount is upwards of $300,000 in support.

Giving back

Bethenny is revealing that giving back and doing something wonderful for people in need is something she can feel very good about. She loves what she does and she's clearly very satisfied with everything she has accomplished thus far. Many fans have donated money to her business, as they are buying t-shirts to support Houston and the surrounding areas hit by the hurricane.

Of course, it is admirable work that she's taking time off her business to help others in need. Many other celebrities have donated money and many famous people have reached out to their fanbase to get people involved. It sounds like asking for money in exchange for a t-shirt is working.

Not necessarily first-to-market

Her idea to raise money for Harvey victims proves one thing; you don't need to be first-to-market or have a great business idea to do business that will make you feel good. One can imagine that Bethenny Frankel is proud of everything she has accomplished with these donations, especially when it comes to paying it forward. It is this kind of idea that will result in success, not necessarily coming up with an original idea. As Frankel later revealed on Twitter, it is this kind of business work that makes you feel good.
