She’s changed her hair color, her manner of dressing, and even her very public way of living; now, it looks like Kim Kardashian’s also had a change of heart. Could this be the effect of motherhood?
In an act seemingly inspired by Victoria and David Beckham, Kim is selling her clothes and shoes to benefit the survivors of Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines. She and her team are doing the auctioning themselves on Kim’s eBay store. She will be giving 10% of the money raised to the International Medical Corps, a nonprofit organization that focuses on health care and medical relief.

Just like Victoria and David Beckham’s donations, Kim’s own auction is stocked full of designer duds. And plenty of those have been spotted on Kim herself, be it on the sidewalk or the red carpet. Even if you’re not a Kim Kardashian fan, a good number of the stuff up for grabs are major steals, and, as of writing, many are still underbid. In the shoe department alone, you’ll find this iconic pair of blade-heeled Casadei pumps:
There are also these celebrity-favorite Givenchy shark-tooth-lock sandals:
These Gucci stripper platform sandals are from Kim’s early days:
A host of Louboutins are also included:
All of the above have so far received bids under their full value.
There are still seven days left in Kim’s auction. If you’ll be shopping the auction for yourself, do note that most of the clothes listed are of US size 8, while most shoes are of US sizes 6.5–7.
For anyone wanting to reach out to the Philippine typhoon victims, we listed some information on other ways to help at the very end of our Victoria and David Beckham fundraiser post.
