Stars from Kate Moss to Vivienne Westwood have donated a pair of signed footwear to raise money for the charity, which provides support and aid to children and their families living on rubbish dumps around the world.
Here, they tell ELLE exclusively about the shoes they donated and why the cause is one close to their hearts.

'I am thrilled to again be donating a pair of my favorite shoes to one of my favorite charities, Small Steps Project. I couldn't think of a better reason to give up a gorgeous pair of heels than by supporting this project raising funds for barefoot children on rubbish dumps. It's heartbreaking to think of kids living amongst the mountains of garbage and surviving only by searching through the waste for anything they can eat or possibly sell. What Small Steps does for these kids is so inspiring, and I hope whomever ends up with the shoes feels as excited about supporting the project as I do.' - Helena Christensen
