Thank you to Amazon for sponsoring this post. As always, all thoughts and opinions are my own.

Something our family has been reminded of more than ever this year is that our teachers are INVALUABLE. They do such important work that positively impacts so many children and families in countless ways. I know that our teachers went above and beyond for our kiddos when we had the abrupt change of moving to online learning. Laila’s Kindergarten teacher was hosting extra reading workshops online and mailing fun coloring sheets just to keep the kids excited. They spend so much of their time and their own money on supporting and supplying things to best support their students!

I wanted to do something for these amazing and deserving teachers as we all enter into this unprecedented school year. #ClearTheList is an incredible movement that gives back to teachers by allowing people to purchase items from their Amazon Wish Lists. In my Instagram post, I’m inviting y’all to submit your Wish Lists and the kids and I are partnering with Amazon to help clear some lists!

If you’re a teacher and want to create your own Amazon Wish List, you can get started at You can also shop thousands of Charity Lists, too – and you can even search for education-specific charities – by visiting

If you’re looking for another way to give back, check out AmazonSmile. It’s such an easy way for you to support your favorite charity every time you shop with Amazon!  All you have to do is visit whenever you shop online. It will look like the same Amazon you know and love, with the added bonus that a portion of your purchase will be donated to the charity of your choice! There’s over a million charities to choose from, including education-related charities like schools and PTA’s. We support our school district each time we make a purchase!

I am so excited we can give back while checking off our back to school shopping list. We started our school shopping at It’s such a convenient, one-stop shop for all things back to school, no matter where your kiddos will be learning this year. I hope that even in a time of uncertainty, knowing you can make a difference can help lift your spirits!
