Supermodel, Lip Sync co-host and wife to singer John Legend, Chrissy Teigen, is such a phenomenal woman. On Friday April 7th, Mercedes Edney created an account on YouCaring.com in order to raise $5,995 to pay for her tuition for attendance at the Academy of Nail Technology and Esthetics. It was not long after tweeting the link that Mercedes' tuition goal was met. Thanks to a generous donation of $5,605 from Teigen Mercedes Edney will be able to pursue her passion.
This is what Edney had to say about the donation:
"Something absolutely amazing happened last night. Many of you know how much I love skin care and my plans to attend esthetician school next month. Last night I posted my tuition fundraiser on twitter and something I never in my wildest dreams happened. My paypal alert went off, and as I looked at my phone, there was amount of $5605," she wrote. "I thought it was a glitch. I then look at my email and realized it came from my fundraiser. @chrissyteigen donated my entire tuition money for school. I have been crying all night and I cried in the office this morning as I paid my downpayment for esthetician school. I haven't been this happy in a very long time," she continued. "Thank you Chrissy and thank you to everyone else who voted or rtd my link or have supported me this entire time. It means more to me than you'll ever know."t.
Teigen's response on twitter was, "I'm really excited for you to live out your passion." Wow, what an angel!
