(WJW) — The new school year is about to begin and some school districts are already in full swing. As students and teachers prepare for learning during unprecedented times, one celebrity icon is trying to help make going back to school a little bit easier.

Chrissy Teigen is asking teachers to send her their Amazon wish lists so she can purchase the supplies they need to help their students learn.

“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!” Teigen wrote on Twitter.

She said she would be focusing on purchasing supplies for teachers working in struggling districts or with special needs.

Teigen’s tweet has received more than 6,000 replies.

Both Amazon and Donors Choose, a crowdfunding organization exclusively for fulfilling classroom needs, responded to Teigen’s post, saying they too would also help fund teachers’ wish lists.

Additionally, some other celebrities and media members have followed Teigen’s lead and gifted to teachers in their own communities.
