Small Steps Project is a humanitarian organisation which delivers shoes and emergency aid to children and families who live on landfill sites around the world.
The aim is to raise awareness of the unacceptable hardships some face. Small Steps Project collects celebrity shoes which are then auctioned to provide shoes for children with none.
There's now such an auction on eBay through December 15. Among the offerings is a signed pair of red Bally trainers from Elton, alongside an autographed headshot.
Others who have donated footwear include Debbie Harry, Eminem, Ben Stiller and Naomi Campbell.
