Garbiñe Muguruza Signed Shoes
Garbiñe Muguruza is a Spanish-Venezuelan professional tennis player. She is ranked world no. 4 in singles and no. 20 in doubles by the WTA. Highlights of Muguruza’s career thus far include winning her maiden title at the 2014 Moorilla Hobart International, winning the biggest title of her career at the 2015 China Open and reaching the final of the 2015 Wimbledon Championships. This year at Wimbledon, she defeated Venus Williams, among others, and was the first to do so in a major singles final.
This is the second time Garbiñe has donated to our Celebrity Shoe Auction. This year she has donated an amazing pair of white and silver Adidas, designed by Stella Mc Cartney, that she wore during Wimbledon 2017, in a UK size 9.5, signed on both outer sides.

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.
