Mercedes Edney is a beauty school student who is known for postingabout beauty tips and skin care products.
And we all know Chrissy Teigen model, mom, wife, social mediaqueen who has been generous with her fans before.
How are these two connected?
Edney wants to go to esthetician school, but tuition would cost her just under $6,000, so shestarted crowdfundingit last month.
Financial aid is not available at the school she was looking to attend, and she was having trouble coming up with the entire amount.
So she turned to her followers on Instagram and Twitter, where she posts beauty tips and skin care tips.
“I know sometimes there is a stigma for asking for help, but this is a huge dream of mine and I am willing to do whatever I can to make it,” she wrote.
She wantedto start school in May and needed at least $895 for the school to hold her seat, which she pulled that together via donations.
But then on Friday night she got a huge surprise, which she relayed on Instagram:
Teigen also included a short note in her donation saying she had been following her dream for a while.
“I’ve seen this is your passion for such a long time now,” Teigen wrote. “So excited to see you fulfill your dream!”
How freaking cool is that?!?
