Model Chrissy Teigen Surprises Fan By Paying Her Tuition For Beauty School

Supermodel Chrissy Teigen made someone’s day, and perhaps life, by paying for her beauty school tuition. The fan, Mercedes Edney turned to one of the many fund-raising platforms to start a campaign to help get her nearly $6000  tuition raised. Edney said she got a notice from Paypal that she had a payment, when she checked she nearly died of the shock.  Minutes after Edney tweeted out the link for the campaign she was thrilled to learn she had her goal met with a single payment for $5,605.

Teigen said she came across the link when she was online and decided to help. Teigen wrote on the page of the campaign, “I’ve seen this be your passion for such a long time now, so excited to see you fulfill your dreams.”  Edney took to social media right away to express her gratitude to the wife of singer John Legend. The money will be used to pay for Edney’s tuition at Academy of Nail Technology and Esthryivd in Charlotte N.C. Edney said when she first saw the payment she thought it had to be some sort of mistake. Then she saw the comment by @chrissyteigen, and she knew it was true.

Edney reached out to the co-host of the ‘Lip Sync Battle’ to thank her for her gernerous donation. She said “Thank you Chrissy, and thank you to everyone who voted, or re-tweeted my link, or have supported me this entire time, it means more to be than you will ever know.” Edney also posted a receipt for her tuition, and said she is hardly able to speak she is so happy because of Teigen’s generosity. Edney said she’s now on her way to seeing her dreams come true.
