Victoria Beckham: Dig them out, bag them up, drop them off

David and I are supporting the Red Cross Shop Drop for the Philippines campaign and we urge everyone in Britain to do the same.

Dig them out, bag them up, drop them off and give someone else the chance to buy them, raising much needed funds for the Red Cross aid effort.
