donationCheck Those Donation Bins Carefully!

A pair of shiny, gold Nikes dropped into the donation bin at the Portland Rescue Mission drew a bid of $50,800 at auction in December. The Air Jordan Retro 3s were one of a few custom pairs made for filmmaker Spike Lee and his inner circle. On one heel was the logo for his production company, 40 Acres and a Mule. Nike designer Tinker Hatfield visited the shelter and authenticated the shoes. He also signed a replacement box and donated other Nike merchandise.
