In recent years, some of the world’s biggest sports stars have taken to the poker table to demonstrate their skills in the game we all love. Former Manchester United, Tottenham and England striker Teddy Sheringham, Barcelona and Spain’s Gerard Pique, golfer Sergio Garcia and the legendary tennis ace Rafael Nadal being four such sporting powerhouses.
These sporting greats not only enjoy the game of poker, but also love to lend a helping hand for charitable causes. All four of the players mentioned have donated signed footwear to the amazing charity The Small Steps Project in an attempt to help raise funds to help kids who have no choice but to live on rubbish tips around the world.
Sergio Garcia has kindly donated a signed pair of Adidas Adizero tour golf shoes, while Rafael Nadal’s signed Nike Air Max Courtballistec 4.3 trainers are attracting bids left, right and centre. Football fans may want to check out the auction for Teddy Sheringham’s signed Nike trainers or perhaps Gerard Pique’s signed Nike football boots, the boots Pique wore as Barcelona beat Real Madrid in October’s El Clasico!
The auctions, which are running now at ebay, close on December 15 so you still have more than a week to bid for some unique sporting memorabilia and help raise funds for a fantastic cause. If these sporting icons do not do it for you, head over to the main auction page where you will find footwear of Harry Potter star Emma Watson, supermodels Kate Moss and Helena Christensen, Isla Fisher, Joan Collins, Jessie J, Aussie pop princess Kylie Minogue and over 100 other celebrities from around the world.
The Small Steps Celebrity Shoe Auction is the biggest celebrity shoe auction in the world, with the most famous stars taking a step to help children living on rubbish dumps globally. Small Steps Project is a UK registered charity and the only one specifically focused on rubbish dump communities. By bidding on these shoes, not only can you win a piece of pop culture history, but you too can take a small step to help children in poverty. Thanks to eBay Giving Works, 100% of the funds raised will go directly to the charity.
