Most people know Chrissy Teigen for her successful modeling career and her impeccable fashion sense but no one knew that the model had a huge heart too. The kind model recently donated $5,605 to a struggling business woman and beauty enthusiast named Mercedes Edney via her crowdfunding campaign.

Teigen’s generous donation helped Edney reach her goal of $5,995 and the very next day she paid her first installation to attend esthetician school. The 31-year-old model, who has never met the fan added an inspiring note along with the donation: “I’ve seen this be your passion for such a long time now,” she wrote. “So excited to see you fulfill your dream!

Edney was beyond thrilled and shared her payment receipt and thanked Teigen on social media. “Chrissy Teigen donated my entire tuition money for school,” she wrote. “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. 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.
