Victoria Beckham is kicking into high gear to help those affected by Typhoon Haiyan and donating hundreds of her shoes to raise funds. Several other celebrities are also rallying support for the cause.
This might be one of the most incredible things about celebrities — when disaster strikes, they rally together to raise as much money as possible to aid the victims. And this time is no different. Many celebrities are urging for donations to help those affected by Typhoon Haiyan, which ravaged the Philippines earlier this month, leaving at least 4,000 dead and thousands more missing.
Being an inventive couple, Victoria and David Beckham have decided to rummage through their palace-sized closets to donate thousands of shoes and articles of clothing to the British Red Cross. The charity will put all the items up for sale on Nov. 22 at its Chelsea location, and the proceeds will go to the victims of the Philippines typhoon.
“Proud to support ?@BritishRedCross ?#ShopDrop Donating clothes for ?#Haiyan survivors,” Beckham tweeted avec photo of her sitting atop a small army of donation boxes.
Of course, the Beckhams are not the only ones helping out with Typhoon Haiyan relief. Celebrities have come together on various social networks to urge their fans to donate to aid the victims of the disaster.

We’re glad to see celebrities putting an effort into making a difference, especially since the people of the Philippines desperately need help. If you’d also like to help, please donate to the Canadian Red Cross.
