Teachers Are Getting Free Supplies After Celebrity Challenge Goes Viral

2 min


Have you heard of the best new hashtag trend going around? It’s called #10featuredteachers, which challenges celebrities everywhere to feature 10 teachers on their Instagram accounts. The lucky winners get a link in the celebrity’s Instagram bio going to the winning teacher’s Amazon wishlist. Then the millions of fans and followers of the celebrities go and buy what’s on their lists. Teachers all over are receiving boxes and boxes of free supplies on their doorsteps! How amazing is that? People, strangers, from around the world, are going out of their way to support these teachers they don’t even know.

How does it work?

The rules are pretty simple and straightforward. If you’re a teacher, just send a photo and a short story about yourself, with a link to your Amazon wishlist. Then, cross your fingers and hope you’re one of the 10 lucky winners to get selected!

 

Rules #10featuredteachers

Ed Droste, member of the Brooklyn-based indie-rock group Grizzly Bear, started the #10featuredteachers hashtag challenge back at the end of August. Since then, many celebrities have volunteered to participate in the cause. They challenge each other on Instagram to randomly nominate 10 teachers, and educators couldn’t be more grateful!

Thank you to all the teachers out there doing the hardest work. Tomorrow will be another teacher in the stories, so if this interests you, please keep an eye out! All the best and much love! ❤️❤️❤️ #10featuredteachers (teacher #1)” – Ed Droste IG
