Chrissy Teigen has helped a beauty school student take a major step towards accomplishing her dream!

After Mercedes Edney posted to YouCaring to help raise money for her beauty school tuition earlier this month, Chrissy gave a donation of $5,606, funding the majority of Mercedes’ goal!

The model and host had apparently been taking notice of Mercedes’ work  for a while. Chrissy posted this message with the donation: “I’ve seen this be your passion for such a long time now. So excited to see you fulfill your dream!

Mercedes was stunned and so happy by the donation, sharing a post of gratitude on Instagram:

Something absolutely amazing happened last night. 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 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. 💜💜 #ixorabb #futureesthetician
