Arkansas mom buys 1,500 pairs of shoes from closing Payless to benefit less fortunate

An Arkansas woman is being heralded for her decision to buy out the remaining inventory of a closing Payless shoe store so local kids in need would have new shoes.

Carrie Jernigan, however, is crediting her young daughter for giving her the idea.

“She has the biggest heart, and she said, ‘There is a boy in my class that loves Avengers, and his shoes are too small, could you buy him these?'” she recalled. “And I was like, ‘Of course.'”

In total, Jernigan reportedly purchased about 1,500 pairs and plans to distribute them next month.

“I always tell my kids, if you ask them what they want to be when they grow up they say be kind, and so I don’t care what they do in life as long as they are kind and good people,” she concluded. “And so it just reiterates to me that their hearts are in the right place and if it’s in the right place they can do amazing things.”
