Rolling Stones Members Donating Personalized Shoes and Boots to UK Charity Auction
-- Several Rolling Stones members have personalized footwear they own and are donating the items to an online celebrity shoe auction that will raise money for U.K. charity the Small Steps Project. Many music artists who performed at this year's Glastonbury Festival, including The Stones' Mick Jagger, Ronnie Wood and Charlie Watts, are taking part in the fundraiser, which is being hosted by Paul Fraser Collectibles and will be held on October 11.
Wood has taken to his Twitter account to post a photo of the footwear he's donating: a pair of rain boots -- or "wellies" -- that he's decorated with his own take on his band's famous tongue-and-lips logo. Other 2013 Glastonbury performers who have contributed footwear to the benefit so far include Kenny Rogers and British singer/songwriters Rita Ora and Kate Nash. In addition to the online sale, a live auction also is expected to be scheduled.
The Small Steps Project is a charitable foundation that provides shoes and financial support children who live in various poverty-stricken regions of the world.
