Victoria Beckham Donated A Gazillion Shoes To Raise Money For Typhoon Aid

David and Victoria Beckham may be mega-famous and strikingly beautiful, but they also happen to have giant hearts. Victoria Beckham tweeted today that she’s selling her shoes to raise money for survivors of Typhoon Haiyan. She tweeted, “Big clear out of my shoes, on sale tomorrow in aid of @BritishRedCross #ShopDrop,” with a photo of a mountain of gorgeous shoes of every size and color. The Spice Girl and her family donated clothes as well, and they’re encouraging fans to do the same. The shoes will be a part of the British Red Cross’s shop drop, a program that encourages people to donate quality clothes and other items to shops throughout the U.K. More information about the sale is available here if you’re near local and would like to support a great cause.

Also by proxy, any woman who has hooked up with a bisexual or gay guy — umm, hi! — is also ineligible for blood donation for a year. Keep reading »
