What’s better than seeing celebrities in gorgeous designer heels? How about owning those actual designer heels, straight out of a celebrity’s closet?

Victoria Beckham, along with husband David Beckham, recently performed a heartwarming act of goodwill. The former Spice Girl announced on her Twitter account that she was clearing out some of her old clothes and shoes for a very good cause.

The Beckhams donated a pile of Victoria’s shoes as well as 20 boxes of clothes to the British Red Cross, which sold the special items in its shop in Kensington and Chelsea on Friday.

All the profits will be donated to the victims of Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines.

There was a long line of people waiting to get their hands on these “posh” items. It was organized chaos as shoppers scuffled and fought over the donated designer goods that were sold for as cheap as £25 ($40).

The charity’s director of fundraising, Mark Astarita, told BBC the Beckhams’ donation “will enable us to raise significant funds towards the enormous humanitarian operation currently under way.”

The fundraising director at the British Red Cross added: “One of Victoria’s dresses will buy 50 blankets; one of David’s suits will buy 14 tarpaulins. It really can make a difference to people in the Philippines.”

David Beckham’s never-smiling wife said: “Everyone has something in their closet they were holding on to – a dress, suit, or pair of shoes they thought they might wear again.

“Dig them out, bag them up, drop them off and give someone else the chance to buy them, raising much-needed funds for the Red Cross aid effort.”

Record-breaking mega-storm Haiyan left millions of people displaced, and the death toll currently stands at more than 5,000.

Aid came pouring in from the global community, and even celebrities, such as the Beckhams, are doing what they can to help.
