I want to be able to send footnotes from intertexts I use within align. Is there an easy way to accomplish this (say using a package)?

For example,

I am a little teapot
this &=spout
\intertext{Here is my handle,\footnote{(one hand on hip)}}
these footnotes get eaten up.

You can issue a \footnotemark inside \intertext and outside align environment place the \footnotetext to get the footnotes inside align.

this &=spout\\
\intertext{Here is my handle\footnotemark,}
\footnotetext{(one hand on hip)}
