American public school systems are chronically underfunded, but thanks to COVID-19, teachers find themselves in greater need than ever of essential supplies to support their students. In fact, many of these teachers have gone onto Amazon and created wish lists to try to access such resources through the kindness of others.
Chrissy Teigen is well-aware of this, and she took to Twitter to do something about it. She asked teachers to send her their wish lists. “If you are a teacher in need of supplies for the upcoming school year, please drop your amazon wishlist here, I will do as many as I can!” she tweeted.
She got over 5,000 replies. And she made good on her promise by helping as many as she could. And it wasn’t just Teigen who purchased items, many of her followers helped fund supplies too.
Tiegen, a model, author, and television and internet personality, is married to musician John Legend. They will be homeschooling their four-year-old daughter Luna this year, and are currently expecting their third child.
