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?

High heels? that’s exactly what they need.

@LIP, did you read the article? The Red Cross will be selling the shoes and using the profits to buy items that are needed.

Really, are all of you can’t read or you just jump right into conclusions? She’s donating the shoes to the British Red Cross so they can sell it and use the money to buy necessary hygiene products that the typhoon victims needed. On another note, that is very sweet of her to donate that many shoes, and I hope the profit will help the victims!

I am not criticizing any one person in particular. I just see such excess and it is puzzling. How can one person own thousands of shoes when so many in the world have none? Why are so many people morbidly obese while others are starving? Why do people have 7 fireplaces, 12 washrooms and 10 bedrooms in their house, while others are homeless? If only there was a way to equal out everything so we all had the same. No one should be starving while others waste enough food to feed an army. It is so hard to see homeless families, starving kids and people dying without simple medicine. It has become such a massive problem that it seems impossible to reverse or fix.
