Chrissy Teigen Pays Woman’s Beauty School Tuition

Every now and then, social media shows how it can be a life-changing tool. In this case, not only did it change a woman’s life, but it proved the old saying, “You never know who’s watching,” to be correct.

Anyone who is a follower of Mercedes Edney on Twitter (@CruzanChoklate), knows that she has a passion for skincare and using natural skincare products. She founded her own natural skincare line, Ixora Botanical Beauty, in 2012.

Recently, Edney, who lives in Charlotte and has a chemical engineering background, set up an online fundraising page to raise $5, 995 to pay for esthetician school. She shared that her goal was to “further my skin care knowledge by getting my license in esthetics.” Because there were no scholarships or financial aid available, Edney was seeking help.

On Friday night, Edney’s dream of esthetician school came true, when Teigen donated over $5, 000 to her fundraiser. Along with her donation, Teigen wrote, “I”ve seen this be your passion for such a long time now. So excited to see you fulfill your dream!”

The donation caught Edney off guard because at first she thought the amount was a glitch.

But when she saw who the donation was from, Edney was floored.

Edney and Teigen have never met, but if and when they do, Edney says she is going to her the biggest hug.

It’s always to see celebrities using their resources for good.
