Country music star Taylor Swift has sold millions of albums and sold out stadiums worldwide, but what makes her perhaps even more popular is her generosity to those in need.
Swift, who makes millions of dollars annually, just donated $1 million to help those impacted by the devastating Louisiana floods that have killed at least 11 people.
Swift said that Louisiana residents eagerly welcomed her when she kicked off the American leg of her “1989 World Tour” last year.
From Fox News:
“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,” the 26-year-old said in a statement.
The flooding is some of the worst in Louisiana history, damaging at least 40,000 homes. More than 60,000 people have registered for disaster aid from the Federal Emergency Management Agency after widespread flooding hit the state, according to Louisiana Gov. John Bel Edwards’ office.
“I encourage those who can to help out and send your love and prayers their way during this devastating time,” Swift said.
Over 30,000 people have been rescued since Friday, with more being brought to safety by the hour.
