Moby Signed Shoes
Moby has been making music since he was 9 years old. He grew up playing classical music but after college became a fixture in the late 80’s New York house and hip-hop scenes. He released his first single, "Go", in 1991 (listed as one of Rolling Stone's best records of all time), and has been making albums ever since. His own records have sold over 20,000,000 copies worldwide, and he’s also produced and remixed for scores of other artists. Moby’s debut album with the Void Pacific Choir, These Systems are Failing, was released in October 2016, and his memoir Porcelain was released in May 2016. This is the second year that Moby has supported the Small Steps Celebrity Shoe Auction.
“They’ve walked everywhere. I bought them in NYC and they went with me on tour and then to L.A when I moved here, so they’ve been to dozens of countries”

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.
