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.

“I feel compelled to speak about something that is in my head and my heart. Over the years, I’ve had to grow a thick skin. Being in the public eye, there are times I feel like I get criticized for any and everything I do. I’m used to it now. I just choose not to feed into negativity or become consumed by it,” she wrote in response to the criticism on her website.
“The problem comes in when I get attacked for giving and trying to help people. My dad always taught me the importance of giving back. I don’t publicize everything I do to help charities and people all over the world. I do it because I want to. I do it because my dad taught me to. I do it because it’s the right thing to do. So for people to attack me for giving 10% of my eBay auction sales to the people of the Philippines, that hurts,” Kim added.
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:

All of the above have so far received bids under their full value. Please remember to read our eBay shopping guide before you make a bid.
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.
