For most people, this pile of shoes is something they see only in their wildest dreams. For Victoria Beckham, it’s what she casually digs out on a Thursday to donate to the British Red Cross, in order to raise funds to aid victims of the Phillipines’ devastating Typhoon Haiyan.

RELATED: How can you help typhoon victims?

“Big clear out of my shoes, on sale tomorrow in aid of @BritishRedCross #ShopDrop,” the star Tweeted along with the photo of dozens of pairs of pumps, sandals, stilettos and boots. She included a link to find info about the sale in case you’re looking to pick up a pair or two yourself. You’ll want to be close to London’s Kensington & Chelsea Red Cross shop tomorrow — but if you’re Posh-sized and looking for labels like Dolce & Gabbana, Jimmy Choo or Roberto Cavalli, perhaps it would be worth the plane ticket.

And if you needed further proof of just how major this donation is, check out the other photo Beckham tweeted, below, of herself atop the mountain of boxes on its way to the Red Cross. All the money raised from the Beckhams’ clothing will send hygiene parcels and more to victims of the typhoon, proving that their hearts are as big as their shoe collections.

Can you believe these photos? How have you been supporting victims of Haiyan?

Cheryl, twice you failed to read the article. She IS donating money. She’s donating the shoes to be sold and giving that money. Good Lord, it’s amazing how ignorant people can be.

Oh pardon me, you don’t want to read the article. Okay, if deliberately looking at a complete @ss is your goal, you succeeded perfectly. If you flat out don’t want to educate yourself, so be it.

What a great idea, I am sure that money will be very appreciated

I am a Victoria Beckham fan. That said, I’m afraid on this one she is out in left field. Donate money Victoria. With all you & David have, trust me, you won’t miss it.

It truly amazes me that people who are so quick to offer their two cents worth of opinion, aren’t smart enough to read.

You go, girl!!! Raise lots of money!

katie on

Super cool of them and I hope lots of money is raised- however, how on earth do people live with so much? Insanity!

Tess on

Nice idea, but who’s going to be walking around in the ripped to shreds Phillipines in stilettos?

On the surface, it’s a nice gesture – you sell personal items for a good cause. It would have been ok if they were common people with an average income. But when you have millions and you sell a pile of shoes you no longer need…it doesn’t look so good. It would have been more elegant to write a check or redirect a percentage of the VB brand’s sales to the Red Cross. Right, it is money, after all, and it’s more than welcome. But the gift says a lot about the giver.

Before you make a dumb comment like “the typhoon victims don’t need shoes”, try reading the article…slowly…
