An aspiring beauty student can now fulfill her dream all thanks to Chrissy Teigen. Mercedes Edney from Charlotte, NC, started an online fundraiser in March to raise $6,000 for esthetician school, but she had only raised about $300 by Friday — that is, until Chrissy stepped in and donated the remaining amount. "I've seen this be your passion for such a long time now. So excited to see you fulfill your dream!" Chrissy wrote alongside her YouCaring donation of $5,605.
Mercedes — who owns a natural skincare product company called Ixora Botanical Beauty — thanked Chrissy on Twitter on Friday, writing, "THANK YOU SOOOOOOOOOOO MUCH!! @chrissyteigen I don't even know how else to thank you right now." Chrissy later replied to Mercedes, saying, "I'm really excited for you to live out your passion ❤❤❤."
