Diplo (Major Lazer) Signed Shoes
The American-born artist Diplo is stepping in various fields of music having become a producer, DJ and songwriter.
As part of electronic music trio Major Lazer, Diplo has produced hits such as "Lean On," "Cold Water," and "Light It Up"; and has collaborated with artists such as Justin Bieber, Skrillex and Nicki Minaj.
This is his first donation to Small Steps Project. Diplo has donated this really cool pair of old-school Vans with beige front, black stripes and laces on a UK size 9, with signatures on the side and sole after playing an incredible opening set on the Other Stage on Friday at Glastonbury 2017. Diplo also wore these at Coachella last year during the Major Lazer performance.
“I'm donating because this is a great organization and I want to do anything I can to support the kids.”

Small Steps Project is a UK charity that wants to inspire everyone to take a small step, because together it is possible to make a difference.
From people volunteering their skills and attending their events, to companies donating their products and services, Small Steps raises funds that go to those who need it most. First, they provide emergency aid, shoes and food to children and communities living on municipal rubbish dumps around the world. Then they provide support for children to take steps into education, and adults into employment.
They deliver their projects in two phases. In the first phase they deliver emergency aid distribution projects, providing items that will protect people from the immediate dangers on rubbish dumps—from shoes, gloves and clothing to mosquito nets, food and water. This enables them to establish the demographics of the dump and devise and implement the second phase of sustainable projects that aims to reduce the time children spend on dumps and support them in taking small steps into education.
Small Steps Project makes documentary films and organises campaigns, such as Celebrity Shoe Auctions, to boost awareness and raise funds for this huge, but often overlooked, global situation.
