This Is the Surprising Crowdsourcing Campaign Taylor Swift Donated To
Taylor Swift certainly seems like she makes a pretty darn good friend. Of course, this is all an educated guess based on the killer bday parties she throws for her BFF Abigail, music videos where she invites literally all her friends and cookie baking parties hosted by the queen herself that get lots of love on Instagram. It’s really no wonder that she has the ultimate #squad, because clearly, she tries to do right by them. Looks like T-Swift’s big-heartedness extends to the families of her friends as well. Get the tissues, you’re gonna need ’em.
According to PopSugar, when Tay Tay found out Kim “Toshi” Davidson, one of the dancers from her 1989 Tour, had a nephew who was suffering from cancer, she donated $50,000 dollars to the little boy’s treatment. Her contribution helped 13-month-old baby Ayden’s family far surpass their $20,000 crowdfunding goal, and it enables him to get a full diagnosis and the treatment he needs.
On the family’s GoFundMe page the boy’s mother says “Taylor you have taken an enormous weight off my shoulders by allowing me to walk this journey with my son and be his protector.” She goes on to say “I will be forever grateful to Taylor and each and every person who made a contribution to Ayden’s fight.”
This is not the first time Taylor helped someone in need. In July of this year, she also aided another young fan with paying for their cancer treatment by donating another $50,000. You can see the video of the 11-year-old fan Naomi Oakes’ reaction to finding out Taylor had donated money to pay for her chemotherapy in this video below. This type of altruism from a superstar is pretty-heartwarming to see.
You’re an inspiration, Taylor.
