Taylor Swift is just proving once again that she is an amazing person and not just a talented songwriter and singer. MSN shared the news that Swift actually donated $50,000 to a young boy who is battling cancer. This isn’t just any boy, though. This is actually the nephew of one of Taylor Swift’s dancers and she wants to do all that she can to help. This little boy is 13-months-old and named Ayden. They are actually still going through tests to figure out exactly what kind of cancer he is suffering from during this hard time.
Swift went to his GoFundMe page and made the big donation. Taylor obviously cares about the people who are out on tour with her. Swift is showing this with a money donation, but her heart is obviously in it as well. Taylor didn’t just give the money though, Swift also left a sweet note to the young boy on the page sharing her thoughts.
“Baby Ayden, I’m lucky enough to perform with your uncle Toshi on tour. All of us are praying for you and your mama and sending so much love your way. Love, Taylor.”
They were trying to reach a goal of $20,000 for the young boy. Instead Taylor Swift donated $50,000 putting them way over. This amount of money probably isn’t a big deal to Taylor, but to other people this is more than they make in a year sometimes. Taylor Swift’s donation brought them to almost $54,000 donated for Ayden. This donation is huge and Toshi really does appreciate it. He went to his Instagram after he saw the donation from Swift to share about how sweet it was of Taylor Swift to donate this money to his nephew Ayden.
The money that has been donated is going to make it where Ayden’s mom can be with him every day. Taylor Swift’s donation is actually life changing for this family. When battling cancer, Ayden is going to need the support of his mother and this money will give that to him. Taylor has blessed this family more than she will ever realize. His mother went to the page to share a thank you of her own.
“Thank you for caring about my family so much that she would want me to share this information with you. I hope and pray that you never get news like this. Love you. Taylor.”
This is not the first time that Taylor Swift has put a huge donation on a GoFundMe page. Back in June, Time shared that Swift made a huge donation to a fireman named Aaron Van Riper. The man was a volunteer fireman and he ended up finding out that his family was the one involved in the accident. Taylor Swift gave $15,000 to help the family with their medical expenses. Both his wife and son did survive the accident, but his wife spent nine hours in surgery right after it happened. Taylor didn’t even know the family, just simply heard about what happened to them.
Things seem to be going really well for Taylor Swift lately with boyfriend Calvin Harris and her career. You never know when a new donation from Swift may show up on a GoFundMe page. She seems to have a way of finding amazing people that can use a bit of help and making their day better.
