Even in the middle of the Kim and Kanya West scandal (click her for more details) Taylor Swift is still being her all-American girl self and donated a crisp 1 million dollars to aid in the current Louisiana flood relief efforts. According to CNN, the PA native stated that
“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. I encourage those who can to help out and send your love and prayers their way during this devastating time.”
Taylor Swift is known for her philanthropy and a huge heart, but part of me is wondering….did this come from a place of love? Or is this a strategical move on behalf of Taylor Swift and her PR team? Personally, I would like to believe that it is the former because I still rock hard my girl T-Swift, but there is till a little voice in my head going “OOOh Girl. I see what you did there”
Thanks to T-Swift’s swift actions, other celebrities such a Lady GaGa and Louisiana native Ian Somerhalder have also sent their love and support publically to the water-logged state.
Though the amounts donated by these two celebrities are yet unknown, it is great to see that Americans are coming together in order to aid their fellow citizens. Especially since The American Red Cross has stated that this devastating flood is now the worst natural disaster to strike the United States since Hurricane Sandy four years ago.
To everyone in Louisiana….stay safe
