A woman named Mercedes Edney was on a mission to raise money to get her license in esthetics.
She wrote on her fundraising page
If you have followed me on social media or my business pages, you know what my goal is. I wanted to further my skin care knowledge by getting my license in esthetics.
She has used her experience in chemical engineering and family traditions to create various skin products and has decided to take it a step further. The goal was $5995 which would cover enrollment, tuition, kits and textbook costs. After a little while of fundraising she had raised $300 thanks to friends on social media. That is when the and only Chrissy Teigen noticed the campaign and stepped in to cover the rest! $5605
Mercedes took to twitter to thank her
And Chrissy replied
This clearly meant the world to Mercedes
This means so much to me! This is the first time in years that I can breathe a little easier. And I'm trying not to cry again.— Skin Care Genie (@CruzanChoklate) April 9, 2017
