London, Sep 1 (IANS) Canadian singer Shania Twain has raised $9,000 for her children’s charity by selling off the high heel shoes.

Twain wore the same pair of shoes which caused a nasty onstage fall at the Cmt Awards June, this year.

“I can personally relate to the effects of growing up with difficulties at home and understand the problems kids can face while trying to fit in with the other students who are not experiencing the same disadvantages in their personal lives,” quoted the 46-year-old as saying.

“The Shania Kids Can program aims to help educators identify children in this situation and provide a safe, productive, confidence-building environment where the kids are coached in good and appropriate behaviour, taught practical life skills, assisted with homework, given an ear to just simply listen when they need it,”she added.

She autographed the shoes and put them up for auction earlier this month which raised the amount for her Shania Kids Can charity, which offers educational support to children experiencing personal problems.
