Taylor Swift just donated a ton of money to a super important cause
In the wake of the unprecedented flooding that recently struck Louisiana, Taylor Swift has donated $50,000 to the Greater Baton Rouge Food Bank, People reports. The charitable act is a portion of the $1 million the 26-year-old recently vowed to donate as relief for the tens of thousands of home and business owners who have been displaced by the storms in the Baton Rouge area, which was declared a disaster area by President Barack Obama. The flooding has also claimed the lives of at least 13 people.
The “Shake it Off” singer joins celebrities like Lady Gaga, who also recently donated to flood relief efforts.
To show their appreciation for Swift’s helping hand, the food bank gave her a heartwarming shout out on its Instagram page.
“Today @taylorswift donated $50,000 to the Greater Baton Rouge Food Bank!” the caption reads. “The #laflood destroyed our warehouse but we are going to shake it off!”
The Salvation Army also expressed their gratitude towards Swift with a sweet Twitter message.
“Thank you @taylorswift13 for helping us serve the #LouisianaFlood survivors by donating to our relief efforts! #DoingTheMostGood,” the tweet read.
Great job, Tay! Swifties should be beaming with pride.
