A woman from Kansas has bought out the remaining stocks of a shoe store so that she could donate them.
Addy Tritt offered to buy all of the remaining 204 pairs of shoes at a local Payless store. If bought at their original prices, the 204 pairs would have been valued at more than $6,000. But because the store was about to close due to bankruptcy, each pair was marked down to $1.
Despite the large discount, Tritt did not have enough money to buy all the shoes. She bargained with a Payless manager, and the shoes were eventually sold to her for only $100 after two hours of phone calls and e-mails.
Tritt then sent the shoes to a sorority in Fort Hays State University, her alma mater. The sorority was organizing a donation drive to help the victims of the devastating Nebraska flood.
According to Tritt, she is not expecting anything in return from the recipients of her donation. She said that she only wanted to make sure that the flood victims have shoes on their feet.
In an interview, Tritt shared that donating to people in need brings her so much joy. In fact, this is not the first time that she made a donation. She has previously organized donation drives and has donated a variety of things, like supplies for animal shelters and school supplies for students. She highly encourages others to volunteer and donate so they may experience the same sense of joy and fulfillment that she has in doing these acts of kindness.
