The generosity of Chrissy Teigen strikes again!

As reported, the 31-year-old model has low-key made a North Carolina woman's dreams come true by way of paying off her remaining tuition for beauty school.

According to reports, Mercedes Edney had started crowdsourcing funds in order to be able to afford to go to esthetician school. When Teigen got wind of the fundraiser, which at the time had raised $300, she casually paid off the remaining balance of $5,605.

"I've seen this be your passion for such a long time now," Teigen shared, along with the donation. "So excited to see you fulfill your dream!"

Edney will be using the money to further her skin care knowledge, which will her expand her already-existing company, Ixora Botanical Beauty. She founded the skin care company in 2012 using family traditions, paired with her chemical engineering background, to create natural skin care products.

"Something absolutely amazing happened last night," Edney shared on Instagram. "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 [an] amount of $5605. 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. 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."
