She truly has a heart of gold…
Since Friday, Louisiana has experienced horrendous flooding that has killed 11 citizens and has damaged around 40,000 homes. Although 30,000 people have been rescued from submerged homes and vehicles, the state is still undergoing a major crisis.
On Tuesday, Taylor Swift announced she is donating $1 million to Louisiana flood relief after she visited the state last year on tour.

The Shake It Off singer said in a statement:
"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."
According to Gov. John Bel Edwards' office, more than 60,000 people have registered for disaster aid.
Even with her generous donation, Swift urges everyone in the world to contribute what they can.
"I encourage those who can to help out and send your love and prayers their way during this devastating time."
Our thoughts and prayers are with Louisiana during this difficult time.
