Singer-turned-designer Victoria Beckham and her husband David have donated boxes of designer clothes and accessories to a thrift store here to help raise money for relief efforts in the Philippines.
The two are reportedly packing up their belongings ahead of a house move and they decided to give their unwanted outfits to charity, reports contactmusic.com.
They donated boxes of shoes, dresses and suits from high fashion labels to a Red Cross shop here to help raise money for survivors of Typhoon Haiyan, which devastated the Philippines earlier this month.
"Typhoon Haiyan has devastated the Philippines, killing thousands and leaving hundreds of thousands homeless. The British Red Cross is now carrying out an enormous humanitarian relief project to help all those people in desperate need.
"David and I are supporting the Red Cross Shop Drop for the Philippines campaign and we urge everyone in Britain to do the same,” said Victoria.
