We didn’t think it was possible for the Beckhams to be any more likable than they already were. Then they had to go and prove us wrong, those good-looking sons of guns.
According to a British Red Cross memo tweeted out by Victoria, she and her ex-soccer player husband David have donated a boatload — make that a 500-foot-yacht-load — of their worn clothing and footwear to a London charity shop to aid the typhoon relief effort in the Philippines.
Dozens and dozens of designer clothes and shoes were sold to raise money for donation. The sales cost almost as little as $160 each which is almost a quarter of their original price. However, each customer had a limitation to only buy one item.
Inside the store were a rail of David’s jumpers and 5 shelves of Victoria’s shoes, each going for around $ 60.
Considering the prices, even men were snapping at Victoria’s heals. I guess they just wanted to buy them for their special lady, although those same heals, most of them, popped up on e-bay. Basically everybody wanted to capitalize on the situation.
Though Victoria’s previous clothes were too small for the average woman, they were still sold out in a flash.
A woman proudly tried on her new Le Silla high heeled shoes in the street, while another showed off a yellow Chanel jacket.
There was a similar donation by Victoria to help raise money for cancer victims where she raise around $13000, this was back in 2010.
