This is what putting your success to good use really looks like.

It’s back-to-school time, and unfortunately that means that teachers often have to reach into their own pockets to buy school supplies for their students.

Well, Casey Donahew and many others in the country music community are doing their best to change that.

It all started when a Texas teacher named Courtney Jones started a #ClearTheList movement to help teachers buy supplies for their classroom from their Amazon wish lists. And when Casey Donahew was tagged in a tweet from a teacher asking for help buying supplies for her students, he joined forces with Randy Rogers to help clear her list.

But he didn’t stop there. Casey set up a GoFundMe page on August 3 with the goal of raising $50,000 to buy school supplies for teachers in need.

As the campaign grew close to its goal, Casey decided to go even bigger, raising the goal to $75,000. And he’s already raised almost $50,000 of that goal.

“The problem with the lack of supplies being provided in our school class rooms is a problem bigger then you and me. Let’s work together to raise money to #clearthelist for these amazing teachers! Education is the foundation to everything!”

But Casey’s not the only star who’s stepping up to help out. Along with Donahew and Rogers, Josh Abbott, Wade Bowen and Flatland Cavalry are among the many faces of the country music world who are doing their best to help teachers clear their lists in time for the new school year.

This is the stuff you love to see. With so much crap going on around the world these days, it’s nice to see the country music community using their fame and success to help out others.

We need more of this.
