The multi Grammy Award winner and pop icon is once again reigning on the headlines. This time though, it's not about her lovelife but for being a good Samaritan.
Taylor Swift, now 26, made a bold promise last August about helping multiple institutions who were devastated by calamities. The donations will be divided to four as she promised. And after just two months, she's about to fulfill her promise. Swift who made her pledge last August has already identified those four institutions. They are The Life of a Single Mom and YWCA Greater Baton Rouge. The "Bad Blood" singer also gifted $131,000 to Habitat for Humanity, which hopes to rebuild 100 homes in Baton Rouge by the end of 2017, and donated $65,700 to the Greater Baton Rouge Food Bank in August.
Each of the foundation mentioned made a heartfelt comment towards Taylor Swift's generosity. Here's what they have to say about the pop icon. "The generous donation from Taylor Swift could not have come at a better time for our organization," reads a post on YWCA Greater Baton Rouge's website.
"These funds will be put to great use as we continue working to restore our Early Head Start facility that was damaged during the historic flooding last month, and continue our critical work of providing access to high quality early childhood services... Thank you, Taylor Swift, and to all those at the Taylor Swift Foundation, for your kindness and generosity in these challenging times."
"Our hearts are overwhelmed by the outpouring of support for single moms. We are grateful to Taylor Swift for reaching out to help us ensure that no single mom walks alone during this very difficult time. The devastation across southeast Louisiana has been unbelievable. We are thankful for the opportunity to serve more single moms with this gift", a statement released by The Life of a Single mom.
Taylor then commented with the devastation that happened to Louisiana "We began the 1989 World Tour in Louisiana, and the wonderful fans there made us feel completely at home". "The fact that so many people in Louisiana have been forced out of their own homes this week is heartbreaking."
