Chrissy Teigen Is Buying School Supplies For Teachers On Twitter

Most of us recognize the amount of work that goes into being a teacher. Helping us with our children is something that we appreciate, but we also realize that they often do so without getting the true financial rewards they deserve. To top it off, they often spend their own money to buy school supplies for their students, which can really present a hardship.

Chrissy Teigen has decided to do something about this by asking for teachers to send her their wish lists. She wants to buy everything that is on them! “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.

More than 5000 replies came into Teigen’s tweet and some followers are chipping in to help pay for supplies. “Today I cleared 50 entire lists and countless extra items were purchased from lovely people just passing through,” Teigen subsequently posted. “Will do more this week and would love to focus on struggling districts and special needs. Please keep posting in this thread!”

Teigen added, “We are absolutely bringing in a professional but I’ve got cooking, john’s got music, grandma has…day drinking. It will be a great school year.”
