Not even a month after Luke Combs paid for the funeral of three young men who died from accidental carbon monoxide poisoning at a Michigan country music festival, the singer-songwriter has once again shown his kindness and generosity by purchasing school supplies for a North Carolina kindergarten teacher.

Kelly Kirk, a kindergarten teacher from Wakefield Elementary School in Raleigh, North Carolina, reached out to Combs on Twitter, to participate in the #ClearTheList challenge, a social media trend where educators turn to the public and celebrities for assistance purchasing everything on their Amazon Wish List.

Kirk wrote, "Hi @lukecombs! I wanted to reach out and see if you wanted to support an Appalachian Alumni with her teacher Amazon wish list! I teach kindergarten in NC and could use some help with #clearthelist. Appreciate the support!”

Combs responded a few hours later, “Cleared it for ya. Good luck to your students and GO APPS!”

Kirk replied, "OH MY GOSH!!!!  You have made my year Luke!!! THANK YOU doesn't seem like enough! Please know that you have made such a difference in my student's lives!!! Smiling face with open mouth. Go App!!!"

She has also tweeted artists Eric Church, Scotty McCreery and others to no avail.

According to clearthelistfoundation, their mission is to “connect schools and teachers with corporations, organizations, and community members that are looking to contribute to the enhancement of learning opportunities for all students.”

Last year, Blake Shelton participated in the challenge by purchasing back-to-school supplies for a teacher in Texas. You too can help by searching #ClearTheList on Facebook and Twitter.

Last month, Combs also made a young old fan’s dream come true when he brought 10-year-old, Jace Rodgers on stage to sing with him at the Country Jam in Colorado over the 4th of July weekend. You can see a photo here (pic 4).
