Mercedes Edney, an independent skin care consultant and the owner of Ixora Botanical Beauty, recently had an online fundraiser to help her pay her way through beauty school. With a goal of $6,000, it had been running for a month, and picked up about $400.
That is until one generous follower decided to donate the difference. That follower? Chrissy Teigen, of course.
Somebody just paid my entire tuition for esthetician school. OMGGGGGGGGGGGGGG— Skin Care Genie (@CruzanChoklate) April 8, 2017
As you can imagine, Edney was pretty excited.
Teigen responded by saying that she'd donated so that Edney could pursue her dreams.
Edney was blown away, and said that she's already used the money to pay the school.
I was so prepared to just keep struggling until I got my goals accomplished. This just helped me so much.— Skin Care Genie (@CruzanChoklate) April 8, 2017
You guys, I walked into the school and explained what happened and burst into tears. The lady couldn't believe what I was telling her.— Skin Care Genie (@CruzanChoklate) April 8, 2017
If I ever meet Chrissy Tiegen in person, I'm giving her the biggest hug on earth.— Skin Care Genie (@CruzanChoklate) April 8, 2017
People were pretty impressed by the show of generosity.
