When will your faves ever?

Chrissy Teigen is out here changing lives. She may be known and loved for her Twitter clapbacks, but there's one fan who loves her for a much more personal reason: Chrissy Teigen paid her tuition.

Mercedes Edney started a crowd-funding campaign last month in an effort to raise money to enroll in esthetician school. Her goal was to raise a total of $5,995 to cover her costs to attend the Academy of Nail Technology & Esthetics, and without any warning whatsoever, Chrissy Teigen — under the name "Christine Teigen" — donated the final $5,605 that Edney needed to reach her goal.

"I've seen this be your passion for such a long time now," Teigen wrote in a comment. "So excited to see you fulfill your dream!"

Unsurprisingly, Edney was over the moon once she found out.

"[Chrissy Teigen] donated my entire tuition money for school," she wrote on Instagram. "I have been crying all night and I cried in the office this morning as I paid my down payment 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."

Edney also tweeted another thank you to Teigen, who responded, writing, "I'm really excited for you to live out your passion."

Yeah, it's officially impossible not to like Chrissy Teigen; the woman is a real-life angel.
