Money raised at that event was to support Unicef’s water, sanitation and hygiene programme for 134,000 children in Kiribati, the Solomon Islands and Vanuatu. All funds from the boots auction on eBay will go towards the DC10 Fund, a partnership with Unicef. Bidding for Carter’s limited-edition gold Adidas Predator boots was at NZ$2877 yesterday.
