Nissa Ellett is an elementary school principal in Indiana, and 75 percent of her students fall below the poverty line. When she saw that many of her students didn’t have adequate shoes, she knew she had to do something.

The Heth-Washington Elementary School principal turned to her community and raised enough to provide her students with shoes, snow boots and other necessary items. Rach surprises her with a $10,000 gift card from PlanetShoes.com to help buy more shoes for her students! But that’s not all, Nissa’s daughter is also on hand — to present her mother with a $3,000 piece of jewelry! Watch to see her shocked reaction.
