Model, TV host, and cookbook author Chrissy Teigen knows the power of Twitter. The celebrity has engaged in her share of beefs on the social media app, as well as using her 140 characters to build on her huge fan base by sharing thoughts that are #relateable.

Posting everything from new recipes, to her critiques on the Trump administration, the Lip Sync Battle co-host gives fans a personal look into her life with husband John Legend and baby Luna.

Now Teigen is using Twitter to help change the life of an aspiring esthetician. Mercedes Edney is the owner of a skin care line and an aspiring beauty school student in North Carolina who was having trouble affording her tuition. Edney started a crowd funding account in March, setting up the site to accept donations towards paying her tuition.

Edney had raised almost $400 of the $6,000 she needed for her tuition when she received an alert that the remaining $5,605 had been donated to her account.

Shocked, Edney assumed it was a glitch, until she investigated further and found that Sports Illustrated model Chrissy Teigen had donated the large amount.

Edney, who makes and sells her own skin care products, was understandably overcome with emotion after receiving the large lump sum from Teigen.

Following the donation, Edney tweeted that when she initially started her skincare business, someone had donated a laptop to her after hers broke. When she wanted to rebrand her business, someone donated $1,000 to help her. Now ready to attend esthetician school to help build her business, Edney encourages people to never give up on their dreams. With her tuition now paid for, Edney plans on moving into a larger home so that she can expand on her lab where she creates skin care products.

Chrissy Teigen: model, mother, wife, author, dream fulfiller.
