A 25-year-old woman named Addy Tritt bought all the remaining shoes at a Hays store for $100, The Hays Post reported, after negotiating with the business when it dropped prices to $1 per pair.
She bought all the shoes for a good cause as she donated them to Nebraska flood victims.
Addy Tritt donated all of the shoes to Nebraska flood victims. Saw that all pairs of shoes were on sale for $1 at her local Payless in Hays, Kansas. She negotiated for 2.5 hours until she could get all of the shoes in the store.

The retail value would have been more than $6,000, the Post reported. But liquidation sales are underway at the footwear chain’s U.S. stores, which are all set to close by late May.
Fort Hays State University’s agriculture sorority Sigma Alpha delivered the shoes to Nebraska farmers this weekend as part of a flood relief shipment, the Post reported.
“I have been so blessed,” she told the Hays Post. “There have been so many great people in my life who have inspired me.”
“I see so many horrible things in the news,” she said. “So many people have helped me when I was down, I want to help if I can.”
Payless also deserves to be appreciated as it offered the shoes at such a low price, knowing they were going to people who desperately need them.
Tritt recently graduated from Fort Hays State University with a degree in human resources. The shoes she purchased for men, women and children were donated to FHSU’s flood relief shipment organized by the Sigma Alpha sorority.

“Thank you Addy for your incredible donation to our Sorority when we were doing our donation drop off locations last week!” Sigma Alpha wrote on Facebook.
“I’m Catholic and I believe that it’s just part of God’s plan for me to help people,” Tritt told CNN. “Whether it’s volunteering in a classroom or donating, that’s what I’m going to do.”
“I just hope this inspires other people to volunteer and donate if you have been blessed,” she added in her interview with the Hays Post.
