Chrissy Teigen just gave a fan the sweetest surprise!
On Friday (April 7), a woman named Mercedes Edney revealed that her dream of becoming an esthetician was now going to become a reality thanks in MAJOR part to the model.
Edney had created a page on the crowdfunding site You Caring with the goal of raising money to pay her beauty school fees. Edney promoted the page on social media, and within 24 hours she hit her goal — thanks, largely, to Teigen. The Lip Sync Battle co-host donated $5,605 to bring Edney up to her goal of $6000.
“Something absolutely amazing happened last night. Many of you know how much I love skin care and my plans to attend esthetician school next month. Last night I posted my tuition fundraiser on twitter and something I never in my wildest dreams happened,” Edney wrote on Instagram.
“My paypal alert went off, and as I looked at my phone, there was amount of $5605. I thought it was a glitch,” she explained. “I then look at my email and realized it came from my fundraiser. @chrissyteigen donated my entire tuition money for school.”
Of course, the North Carolina based beauty lover couldn’t believe her eyes and started to freak out.
“I have been crying all night and I cried in the office this morning as I paid my down payment for esthetician school. I haven’t been this happy in a very long time,” she continued. “Thank you Chrissy and thank you to everyone else who voted or rtd my link or have supported me this entire time. It means more to me than you’ll ever know. #ixorabb #futureesthetician.”
Okay, this is the sweetest story ever. Teigen believed in one of her fan’s dreams and helped make it a reality with no questions asked. Now we love her even more.
Teigan also included a sweet note with her donation.
“I’ve seen this be your passion for such a long time now,” Teigan wrote. “So excited to see you fulfill your dream.”
And after Edney (who goes by Skin Care Genie on social media) thanked Teigen on Twitter for getting her to her goal, the 31-year-old star responded with lots of love.
“I’m really excited for you to live out your passion ❤❤❤,” Teigen said.
Chrissy, you’re our new hero! Who knew that by going for your goals and dreams — especially on social media — that you could get a little boost by one of your favorite celebrities?
