that's a pretty funny story. i'm doubtful about her chances of success (since it basically seems to be asking for a handout), but way to think outside of the box! the mom should try her hand at marketing.
my thoughts exactly. I remember people being crazy about getting to target for the missoni products which sold out the same morning but to try to get more money than what someone could pay for real missoni boots is a little crazy. Nice idea and good cause though..
