Taylor Swift Offered $3,000 Apiece to Fans Dealing with Coronavirus-Related Struggles
Taylor Swift is helping fans hit with coronavirus-related troubles to shake it off.
Swift offered up a whopping $3,000 apiece to two fans dealing with problems related to the virus on Wednesday (March 25). She left behind two obviously shaken followers n her wake, proving that there's still some good to be found within this pandemic.
One fan, Samantha Jacobson, had been laid off for 30 days following the closure of the bar she worked at. She took to Tumblr to lament her thoughts on wanting to help donate to the causes Taylor had championed on her Instagram, but being unable to.
"I wish so badly that I could donate to the link Taylor provided but because of COVID-19 my job, my only source of income, is closed for a minimum of 30 days. I have no job, no income, no way to pay my bills rn. If anyone happens to be able to donate and has it in their hearts to do so, anything really really helps with bills right now," she wrote.
Taylor responded to Jacobson with a DM and offer to help send her some cash to help her get through the rough patch.
"Samantha, I saw your tweet about being stressed about bills piling up and I want to help. What's the best way I can give you $3000? Do you have PayPal?" Swift wrote before giving Jacobson the generous cash donation.
Swift did the same for a fan named Holly Turner, who had posted to Tumblr about how she was concerned about being unable to live in New York City after struggling within the music industry. Her job as a music photographer had been in danger, and Swift swooped in with a donation.
"Holly, you've always been there for me. I want to be there for you right now. I hope this helps. Love, Taylor," Swift wrote after sending along her monetary gift.
Despite dealing with her own struggles amid the recent drama between Kim Kardashian and Kanye West, Swift is choosing to remain positive. And it looks like her fans certainly appreciate her efforts to help keep them afloat during these trying times.
