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?

I am sure she also donated money for the survivors… which I think is NOT necessary to post online. And she wanted to do more than that, thus, donating her clothes and shoes… And tweeting about this fundraising, is for the people to know that there are good items for sale which will not only benefit the buyer but the Haiyan surviors as well.

I may be wrong, but I guess the article headline is written like that on purpose…so all the haters can have a go without even bothering with reading the article.
I love Victoria and David,and it certainly is a nice gesture. Hope it raises a lot of money ;)

What a sweet gesture!

It’s amazing how so many of you think you have the right to say how people should spend THEIR hard earned money. Victoria doesn’t have to donate a dime. I’m willing to bet most celebs aren’t donating anything toward this disaster. But here she is, donating tons of designer shoes which will raise a LOT of money, and that’s not good enough. And she very well could’ve written a check that we don’t know about.

Instead of criticizing another person’s donation, you should worry about what YOU can do to make a difference.

Thank you for your support Beckhams

@Yaknow didn’t they try that with communism? don’t fault people for having too much. some of them worked hard for it and deserved it.

Please make sure it doesn’t go to the wrong hands. (Social Climbers, Gold Diggers, Wannabes, etc….)

Seriously. She donates five – eight inch heels to an area torn to shreds where people are moving around on their bare feet looking for photographs of their children among the rubble of what once was their home? Seriously? This woman has no brains whatsoever. How do expect these poor people to walk around in your junk. Sell your junk next time and send the money needed for water and food supplies. Just annoying. She wanted to get rid of her junk and look good at the same time.

I think it is a darn shame that someone feels the need to have this many shoes. I get it, women love shoes, but this is over the top. Can’t help but think of all the struggling families out there. There is no shame is making money and being proud of your accomplishments, but this screams excessive. What should have been a great donation looks too much like greed.
