Leave it to our fave Chrissy Teigen to do a good deed for a deserving stranger.

Mercedes Edney of Charlotte, North Carolina began a page on “You Caring” (a crowd-funding page) to help pay for school to become and esthetician.

Edney got the surprise of her life when she found out Teigen paid over $5,000 to pay out the cost of tuition.

She originally thought it was a PayPal glitch when she suddenly saw the inflow of cash and then freaked out when she realized what had happened.

In addition to the donation, Teigen wrote Edney a letter which read,

“I’ve seen this be your passion for such a long time now. So excited to see you fulfill your dream!”

Edney tweeted her overwhelming appreciation, to which Teigen responded,

Ugh, heart melting over here. We adore Chrissy, whether she’s clapping back at haters or making someone’s dream come true!
