The very first Genius of Love Award goes to Carrie Jernigan, a mother from Arkansas, because according to ABC News 11 she bought out all 1500 shoes at a bankrupt Payless shoe store so she can donate them to disadvantaged kids when they go back to school.
I really like Carrie's act of genius because she listened to her daughter who asked if she can buy one pair of shoes for her classmate. One thing led to another and they ended up buying out the entire store. The size of their hearts is larger than the room storing those 1500 shoes.
Brava, Carrie Jernigan! You are #1!
