If y'all haven't heard yet, this groovy chick is for the children!
The inspiring and amazing Taylor Swift has gone the extra mile once again!
The 24-year-old superstar has donated $50,000 to the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, and that money will be put towards a "high-tech music therapy program" specifically for children in the hospital's Cancer Center.
Here's what the chief executive officer of the hospital, Steven M. Altschuler, said in a statement:
“We are thrilled that Taylor Swift has chosen to support The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia’s Cancer Center. Her gift will help lift the spirits of many CHOP patients during a difficult time.”
And here's what the director of the hospital's Psychosocial Services Program, Lamia Barakat, said:
“Taylor Swift‘s music is an inspiration to so many of our teen patients. We can think of no better way to use her gift than to grow our Adolescent and Young Adult initiative designed to support the emotional well-being of our teens with cancer.”
Could not say it better ourselves!
We LOVE that Taylor is inspiring these inspirational kids to keep fighting to keep living, and we're sure her gift of music will improve these children's lives more than she even knows!
Hopefully Taylor's actions will inspire others to do more for kids in need! She can't do it all herself — even if it sometimes seems that way.
Way to go lady!!!
