Posh Donates Piles of Shoes

The donated pile of shoes.
There are quite a few shoe focused charities out there, but none of them earned quite the frenzy that Victoria Beckham (a.k.a. Posh Spice) created when she donated a mountain of shoes to the British Red Cross to raise money for victims of Typhoon Hayian.

In one fell swoop she donated more shoes than some people ever have, all designer of course. Then on top of the pile of shoes, there were 20 boxes of clothes.

Apparently she was quite serious about cleaning her closet.


Ever the saavy business woman, Posh tweeted the whole thing, including pictures of the pile of donated shoes and the boxes of clothes that were being donated. That also gave a brief glimpse into the real world of the Beckhams, where Posh wears jeans and gym shoes while cleaning the closets, and weighs enough to not be supported by

a closed box full of clothes.

The items were all put on sale in one of the British Red Cross stores, and hordes of fans and shoppers clamored to get a piece of Posh, for as little as $25. While that doesn't seem like a lot, when you think about the sheer amount of stuff she donated, and the fact that it all sold, I'm sure that a good chunk of change was raised for an amazing cause.


If you want to make a donation to the victims of Typhoon Hayian, you can do so here, through CARE.
