This celebrity used her Instagram following to help teachers stock their classrooms with school supplies

It all began with a DM.

Laura Ciervo, a preschool and elementary school-based speech language pathologist in New Jersey, had created an Amazon wish list of school supplies for the upcoming year.
While many schools opted to continue distance learning amid a pandemic, Ciervo’s school reopened its doors. That meant Ciervo needed to reinvest in supplies for her classroom. She normally dishes out her own money on them. 하지만 전염병과 함께, that would mean spending way more than usual, because children are no longer able to share supplies.
She knew she needed some helpso she decided to randomly reach out to one of her favorite celebrities on Instagramcomedian Erin Fosterto see if she’d respond.
    Much to her surprise, Foster, who has more than half a million followers, replied to the direct messageand was happy to help. She shared Ciervo’s list on her Instagram on August 18.
    When you have a big following on social media, you have an opportunity and you should do what you want with that,” Foster told CNN. “I like to sprinkle in some useful things that can help people. And when you do it authentically, people usually want to participate.

    Foster, who has more than half a million followers, tends to stick with comical and self-deprecating content of her and her famous sister, Sara Foster. But she’s also known to engage with her fans onlineand after seeing Ciervo’s request, she knew her followers would step up.
    People really appreciate kindness towards teachers,” Foster said. “That’s sort of a universally understood thing. Everyone’s had a teacher that’s had an impact on them, and everyone knows that teachers have a tough time surviving on their pay.
    Laura Ciervo has received tons of offices supplies that she says will help her students achieve their speech and language goals.

    Ciervo 믿을 수 없었다.
    When she responded to me that she’d be happy to share my list, I freaked out,” 그녀는 CNN에 말했다. “Not only would I hopefully be getting some great things for my students, but I also had to play it cool and not totally fan girl.
    Since her wish list was shared by Foster on Instagram, Ciervo has received more than 100 packages containing books, games and other learning resources.
    Ciervo said she's had more than 100 package deliveries in three weeks.

    Many of the packages came with notes,” Ciervo said. “One read ‘I follow Erin Foster and my sister has downs. Thank you for your heart to teach and love all those kids.That one was really special.
    She said this act of kindness is exactly what she needed heading into what is sure to be a very challenging school year.
    I have always said, it takes a village,” 그녀가 말했다. “I just didn’t realize how far and wide my village would be.
    In just three weeks, Foster said she has received 400 messages from teachers across the US, also asking for her help after seeing her share Ciervo’s list.
    Samantha Truax, a 5th grade teacher in Minneapolis, was among those who also reached out to the comedian.
    Truax said she has had many students that have been affected by recent events in her community, including the pandemic and George Floyd’s killing. 그래서, she decided she wanted to make some changes within her classroom library.
    My library lacked books showcasing diversity,” 그녀는 CNN에 말했다. “I want to display each of my studentsbackgrounds and cultures through the books they will be reading.
    Knowing how expensive it would be to stock her library with new books, Truax took to social media for help.
      I never thought in a million years that I would get a shout out by Erin Foster for my Amazon wish list,” 그녀가 말했다.
      After successfully sharing 17 교사’ wish lists, Foster said she plans to reach out to her celebrity friends with big followings and ask for help in sharing as many more lists as they can.
