Victoria Beckham Selling 600 Items From Wardrobe For Charity

Victoria Beckham wants YOU to buy her clothes! The former Spice Girl partnered up with to sell 600 items from her wardrobe, with all proceeds going to HIV charity mothers2mothers.

The passion stems from a visit to South Africa, helmed by Anna Wintour and American Vogue. Beckham met with charity founder Dr. Mitch Besser, who works with HIV-infected mothers to educate them on how to prevent spreading the illness to their babies and keep them healthy.

She was said to be moved by the experience, and was anxious to find a way to help.

"After spending just a few days with these remarkable women and learning more about the charity from Mitch, and his lovely wife Annie Lennox, I wanted to do as much as I could. It really was a life-changing experience; I've never experienced anything like it," Beckham explained.

"I have never met such strong women in my entire life. The work they are doing is nothing short of absolutely remarkable," she continued in Grazia magazine.

With the help of her mother and sister, David Beckham's misses selected high-fashion pieces she was photographed wearing worldwide. She feels this is a great way to both raise money and awareness for the organization.

"I laughed a lot when we were going through my wardrobe as the pieces hold so many happy memories for me, David and the children. A lot of the clothes have been specially designed for me by the most talented designers and I've loved wearing them, however I now feel it's someone else's turn to enjoy them," the former Posh Spice recalled.

"We approached The Outnet, part of The Net-a-Porter Group, as they have an incredible global reputation and are the perfect partner for us to build awareness and raise as much money as possible for mothers2mothers."

The Outnet's president released a statement on behalf of the collaboration.

"We are thrilled to be working with Victoria Beckham and her team on this very exciting charity event. From the start, The Outnet has defined itself by its strong relationships and collaborations with designers in luxury fashion and we are confident we can draw an enormous amount of interest for these iconic items and raise awareness for mothers2mothers," it read.

Dr. Besser also praised the designer's efforts.

"The funds that are raised will help mothers2mothers' Mentor Mothers reach even more HIV-positive mothers with critical health education and support, to stay healthy and protect their babies from HIV infection," he said.

"HIV infections in children and maternal and infant deaths from AIDS are unnecessary and unacceptable. With the right education and empowerment, no baby should ever be born with HIV and no mother should die of AIDS. I'm sure everyone will have lots of fun shopping such a fashion treasure trove, and we'd like to thank those who do for joining us to eliminate HIV/AIDS in children and keep their mothers alive."
