Taylor Swift

With the election coverage and the Olympics taking place one of the stories that has flown a little below the radar is the massive flooding taking place in Louisiana. A number of celebs have stepped up to the plate to donate funds to help in relief efforts.  Most notably, Taylor Swift is donating $1 million of her own money to help the region. She released a brief statement on Tuesday explaining why she decided to donate so much money. “We began The 1989 World Tour in Louisiana, and the wonderful fans there made us feel completely at home,” she said. “The fact that so many people in Louisiana have been forced out of their own homes this week is heartbreaking. I encourage those who can to help out and send your love and prayers their way during this devastating time.”
