Chrissy Teigen just showed us she’s got a heart of gold.
The model has ensured a woman can fulfill her dream of going to beauty school by paying her tuition.
Mercedes Edney of Charlotte had started an online fundraiser last month to raise $5,995 for esthetician school. She had raised about $300 by Friday, when Chrissy saw her fundraising efforts and promptly paid off the rest.
It appears the wife of John Legend may have been following Mercedes for some time. In 2012, the woman founded Ixora Botanical Beauty using her chemical engineering background and knowledge of family traditions to create natural skincare products, explaining on her fundraising page that she wanted to ‘further my skin care knowledge by getting my license in esthetics’
“I’ve seen this be your passion for such a long time now,” Chrissy wrote in a note with her donation. “So excited to see you fulfil your dream!”
And Mercedes couldn’t get over Chrissy’s generous donation of $5,600, taking to Instagram to express her gratitude.
Alongside a picture of a receipt for the first payment for her tuition, the budding beautician wrote:
'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. 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.'
