While some celebrities use their Instagram accounts to flaunt their glamorous lifestyles, Kristen Bell is using hers to advocate for charitable causes.

Notably, every Friday, the actress has been sharing a #FeaturedTeacherFriday Instagram post, introducing her 11 million followers to a teacher. She posts a link to that teacher’s classroom Amazon wish list in her Instagram profile and encourages her followers to donate supplies to the teacher’s classroom.

Many of the teachers Bell chooses to feature work in low-income communities. According to Veronica Landa, a sixth and seventh grade Spanish teacher in New York who was featured on Bell’s Instagram in July, the supplies that she’s received from Bell’s followers have been life-changing. Within a few days of Bell’s post, Landa’s wishlist was almost completely fulfilled.

“I was speechless … I’ve always had an Amazon wish list with the things I wanted for my students but never did I believe this would happen,” she told Good Morning America.

Here’s what Bell posted about Landa and her students in her #FeaturedTeacherFriday Instagram post:
