Sometimes Twitter is good for more than just retweets for chicken nuggets and memes.

North Carolina-based Mercedes Edney found that out firsthand over the weekend. She started a crowdfunding effort to help with beauty school expenses last month. To her surprise, the aspiring esthetician and skin care business owner quickly met her goal because someone—a certain someone named Chrissy Teigen—made a payment for the entire tuition amount.

Somebody just paid my entire tuition for esthetician school. OMGGGGGGGGGGGGGG

"I’ve seen this be your passion for such a long time now. So excited to see you fulfill your dream!," Teigen wrote on the YouCare page, donating $5,605 of the almost $6,000 being raised.

@CruzanChoklate I’m really excited for you to live out your passion ❤❤❤

"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," Edney wrote on Instagram.

Don’t ever give up on your dreams, man. I don’t think I’ve ever wanted something so bad in my life. I been speaking it into existence.

"Chrissy Teigen 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," she said.

I haven’t been able to sleep fully since this happened. My mind is racing.

"Thank you Chrissy and thank you to everyone else who voted or retweeted my link or have supported me this entire time. It means more to me than you’ll ever know," she wrote.

Shoutout to Chrissy, the best Twitter mom we could ask for.
