It’s April 2017 and Mercedes Edney, a woman from Charlotte, North Carolina, is struggling to improve her life. She starts a YouCaring page that comes to the notice of Chrissy Teigen. No one would expect the supermodel to do anything about Edney’s crowdfunding appeal, but the star’s response stuns Edney and leaves her helpless with tears.
Utah native Teigen has had a big career in modeling and TV ever since being spotted in a California surf shop. With nearly 12 million followers on Twitter and more than 26 million on Instagram, she’s also an active and popular user of social media. Since 2013 she’s been half of a celebrity marriage with singer John Legend, with the pair having two kids.
