NB: Story is from June but important!
Last year, Idris and Sabrina did a live stream on IG in which they talked about BLM. Christian Louboutin was listening and found it inspiring, leading them to discuss on ways he could assist the movement.
This led to the "walk a mile in my shoes" campaign, a two chapter collaboration between the Elbas and Louboutin which consists of shoes, stilettos, purses and accessories.
100% of the proceeds will go to 5 charities.
List of charities:
- Be Rose
- The immediate theatre in East London
- Gathering for Justice
- Somali Hope Foundation
The Somali Hope Foundation is Somali-Canadian organisation that runs a free of charge school in Bursalah, Puntland (Rajo).

Idris and Sabrina Elba partnered with the French label on a collection, named in honor of MLK, that benefits 5 non-profit organizations around the world.
