Kansas Woman on 'Ellen' Show for Buying Out Shoe Store for Nebraskans


A Kansas woman will soon be on The Ellen DeGeneres Show for buying 204 pairs of shoes and donating them to Nebraska flood victims in early April. Addy Tritt will be on the show Monday, April 22. A show spokeswoman said that while Addy generously gives back to her community, she's actually in debt with student loans and her family helps buy her groceries. 


Addy said so many have helped her in the past and this is her way of paying it forward. She could not resist when the price of shoes at Payless in Hays dropped to $1 per pair, so she negotiated to buy all the remaining shoes for $100, but the retail value was more than $6,000. 


Maybe Ellen will help Addy pay off those student loans. She's a graduate of Fort Hays University. The Ellen DeGeneres Show airs Mon thru Fri, 4:00pm on CBS.
