Chrissy Teigan funded a woman's beauty school tuition. Cue all of the feels.


American model Chrissy Teigan came across a woman's tweet that linked to a fundraising page for esthetician school. Inspired by her passion, Teigan contributed $5,605 so that Mercedes Edney, an independent skin care consultant of Charlotte, North Carolina, could reach her end goal of $5,995.

"I've seen this be your passion for such a long time now," the model wrote on Mercedes' fundraising page. "So excited to see you fulfill your dream!"

This is how Edney responded. 

Throughout the night, Edney continued to express her gratitude. 

You go, girl!

This isn't the first time Edney has been blessed with a random act of kindness. She said she started her beauty company, Ixora Botanical Beauty, because of the unconditional support and encouragement she received from Twitter. Then, when her computer broke, she said, someone donated a laptop. And, when she needed funding to rebrand her business, a stranger donated $1,000, which, Edney claimed, was enough for her to proceed.
