Say what you want about Taylor Swift, but she is one of the highest-paid celebrities for a reason. It is refreshing to see stars donate their money to good causes and Swift is no exception. It was recently reported that Swift donated $1 million to the Louisiana flood relief.

Some are saying this disastrous flood is even more damaging than Hurricane Katrina. Over 20,000 people have been evacuated and there have been 11 deaths. In a statement, Swift calls the event heartbreaking. She encourages “those who can help out to send your love and prayers their way during this devastating time.” Hopefully others will follow suit to help in any way they can.
Swift is known for her giving spirit. She also recently wrote Kesha a $250,000 check after a judge denied her being freed from her contract with Dr. Luke after emotional and sexual abuse. And who can forget the time she surprised her fans with Christmas presents?

Now, what about that Taylor drama? It is quietly sliding into the past after having removed herself from the spotlight these last few week, especially now after this newsworthy gesture. It is probably the first story to break that is unrelated to the Kanye beef or Calvin split.
Thank you, Taylor, for this generosity.
