BUCHAREST, Romania — Madonna is putting her shoes where her mouth is, offering one of her favorite pairs of Christian Dior shoes to a charity supporting Gypsy child education.
Organizers said Tuesday that the skyscraper gold heels, autographed by Madonna, will be sold at the Ovidiu Rom annual ball this month. Vanessa Redgrave has donated a necklace to the auction.
Madonna drew international attention by saying during an August concert in Bucharest that widespread discrimination against East Europe's Gypsies, also known as Roma, should end. Thousands of fans responded by booing her.
