People tend to go one way or another about their feelings for Chrissy Teigen, but there’s no denying that she has a lot of influence over folks out there.
And here’s a story about a big celebrity using their power and influence for good. A whole lot of good, in fact.
As if teachers in this country aren’t already going through enough grief and anxiety with the pandemic, it’s an unfortunate reality that a lot of them in the U.S. deal with a severe shortage of school supplies for themselves and their students.
So Teigen took it upon herself to reach out to teachers at the beginning of this school year in August to help them out with having the proper supplies. Now, that is impressive!
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 has a whopping 13.5 MILLION followers on Twitter and she received over 5,000 replies.
Teigen later updated and told her followers how much progress she had made.
Today I cleared 50 entire lists and countless extra items were purchased from lovely people just passing through. Will do more this week and would love to focus on struggling districts and special needs. Please keep posting in this thread!

Her followers also chipped in to help out teachers and Teigen later said on Twitter, “Will do more this week and would love to focus on struggling districts and special needs. Please keep posting in this thread!”
Here’s an example of a teacher who responded to Teigen’s offer.
You are an incredibly kind and generous person. I work with 2-13 yr old students with autism and developmental disabilities and would be grateful for any help at all. Thank you so much!https://t.co/bAV7MRFJoT
