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?

She’s amazing, it doesn’t seem like it but… she’s probably a blast to have as a friend. Love her :D

Sarah, it’s called raising awareness and it’s a good thing.

Shoes???. Umm they need far more practical items. Like food, water, medicines. Shoes they do not need. Especially her shoes. Her heart may be in the right place. But that donation is ridiculous.

Please read the article properly before you posted comments! She’s donating the shoes to be sold to raise money for the Red Cross! Good for her! I love the Beckhams! And how do you not know that she hasn’t donated money already? Please keep your uneducated opinions to yourself!

I would never buy and wear sandals after someone else sweat their feet in them. It is not hygienic and btw, orthopedists do not recommend wearing shoes after someone else, not healthy for your feet. Victoria is just getting rid of the stuff she doesn´t like and want anymore and she is making room in her closet for hundreds more new shoes… Nothing humanitarian in that, I would be embarrassed to brag about it…donate money from your big bank account or your time and energy to work for people in need like Angelina Jolie, not something you just need to get rid of…

Sure hope they aren’t her shoes. Those would be about as useful as slippers in snow.

Grant it, it’s a nice gesture but I would have had an auction and then donated all the money, which would have been big amount and would go towards things they REALLY need. JMO
