Celebrity Shoe Signings Are Growing!


[from World Entertainment News Network]

Musicians including David Bowie, RINGO STARR, COLDPLAY and LILY ALLEN are auctioning their shoes for charity. The stars are selling their footwear to raise money for the Mines Advisory Group (MAG) - an organisation that helps support mine-damaged Africa. Charity director LOU McGRATH says, "The support from celebrities for the shoe auction has been fantastic and resulted in an impressive collection of footwear."

The money raised will play a vital role in clearing the remnants of conflict, preventing injuries and deaths and regenerating communities." The money is especially needed for our work in Lebanon, where the UN estimates there are around 100,000 unexploded bombs at 359 separate sites." Bidding on website continues until December 8.
