When it comes to charitable acts many famous celebrities, actors, and athletes have done their fair share. Adding to the list of those well-known doers of good deeds is Olly Murs.
Olly Murs is set to be auctioning off a pair of signed shoes and will be dedicating the proceeds to Small Steps Project charity. Artist Olly Murs donated a pair of Givenchy shoes he wore on his UK arena tour to the Small Steps Project charity that will be auctioned off. The singer also donated a pair of canvas trainers that he wore on the same tour that will be auctioned off on the organization’s website. Olly Murs has donated shoes in 2016 as well.
Olly Murs isn’t the only famous star to donate shoes to the Small Steps Project charity. Sia, Lorde, Coldplay’s Chris Martin and Michael Caine had all donated shoes to the organization as well. Olly Murs hopes his shoes will sell for a lot.
“These are the designer stage shoes I wore for my arena tour earlier this year. I did a lot of dancing in them for two months and absolutely loved them! I hope that the money raised will go a small way towards a very worthwhile cause and charity. I have donated my shoes to the Small Steps project because it is such a fantastic charity – I really hope that they raise lots of money to really make a difference to children’s lives!”
the description of Olly Murs shoes listed on the Smallstepproject.org website says: “Olly kindly donated a pair of shoes last year, and this year he is collaborating again with a pair of black and red Givenchy, leather, elastic shoes in a UK size 8.5/9 that he wore during his arena tour in early 2017. The shoes are also both signed on the front.”
Bidding on the shoes is set to end on November 27, 2017. The top bid so far is $350. The Small Steps Project is a charity based in the UK that strives to provide aid in the form of shoes and food to children and communities. They also try to support the children to take steps into education and adults into employment.
