Chrissy Teigen’s generous deed truly made her fan’s day.
After she learned that a North Carolina fan was struggling to pay her beauty school tuition, the model decided to step in and help.
“I’ve seen this be your passion for such a long time now. So excited to see you fulfill your dream!” Teigen wrote as she donated the remaining $5,500 her fan Mercedes Edney needed.
Edney, who owns a natural skin-care product company, took to Twitter to thank Teigen.
“THANK YOU SOOOOOOOOOOO MUCH!! @chrissyteigen I don’t even know how else to thank you right now,” she said, to which Teigen replied, “I’m really excited for you to live out your passion.”
On Saturday, Edney wrote a longer, heartfelt message on Instagram, further thanking the star for her help.
“Something absolutely amazing happened last night,” she said. “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. My paypal alert went off, and as I looked at my phone, there was amount of $5605. I thought it was a glitch. I then look at my email and realized it came from my fundraiser. @chrissyteigen donated my entire tuition money for school. I have been crying all night and I cried in the office this morning as I paid my downpayment for esthetician school. I haven’t been this happy in a very long time. 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.”
