Shoes To The Rescue

Michele Miller is the school principal of Jackson Elementary School in El Dorado Hills, Sacramento . The lady loves shoes and is selling 285 pairs of her shoes online with proceeds benefiting the Rescue Union School district. She is asking for a donation of $1,000 a pair to help save the jobs of 17 teachers, three vice principals, library technicians and others. She hopes the proceeds will go to help close a district budget gap of up to $2.2 million. Volunteers are uploading photos of the size 7-7½ high-tops, cowboy boots, leopard-print rain boots, sandals, platforms and high heels to a website. Michelle has not yet received any orders for her shoes but is taking donations from those who want to help.The website accepts tax-deductible donations through PayPal, which funnels the money to a district account set up for the eight-week fundraiser. Any money collected is designated specifically to help preserve at-risk jobs in the Rescue Union School District. Miller said she will pay for shipping herself, but might ask a local mail centre to pitch in if orders take off.
