The comedian, who has been recording his show from his home in New York due to the Covid-19 pandemic, announced on his Instagram that he would be gifting 50 teachers with brand-new laptops.
The impact of COVID-19 has taken its toll on the education system, requiring teachers and students to effectively ‘be at school’ from their homes. For some, owning a laptop or having access to the internet remains a luxury.
Noah took it to Instagram and wrote:
“TEACHERS who are forced to do all your work online!! I’ve got 50 more Surface Laptops to give away to any educators who need a new device. Please tag your favourite teachers below and I’ll pick 50 at random.”
The post received unprecedented attention and Noah says there have been nearly half a million entries.
