“Double a round of applause and a big thank you to Ms. Swift for her incredible support and we wish her all the best on the rest of her tour!”

After discovering Nashville single mom Nikki Cornwell and Harrison Township Shelbie Selewski’s GoFundMe fundraisers, the artist performed a number of incredible acts of kindness.
“Nikki, I read about you in the Washington Post and thought that was very brave of you to share your story,” the singer wrote along with her contribution.
She continued: ‘I’m so sorry for everything you’ve been through this year and wanted to send you this gift, from one Nashville girl to another. Love, Taylor.
Beloved: Taylor has in the past donated $10,000 to an autistic boy, named Jacob Hill, to help him get a service dog, helped Swiftie pay off her student loans, and donated $10,000 to a cancer-fighting fan to help her with her medical bills.
As for the second recipient of Swift’s largesse, she selected Selewski, who lost her job in the spring and has to stay home with her daughter Vada, who was born with a collapsed right lung.
Despite trying “tirelessly” to find another job and helping her seven-year-old daughter navigate her online classes, she said the process has “proved incredibly difficult.”
“We’ve sold as much as we could sell and with that we’ve always paid our bills as much as possible, but it seems like every day something else comes along,” he said.
Selewski added that he “never” thought he would ever have to “do a GoFundMe, but with Christmas approaching,’ she ‘didn’t know what else to do.’
Any donations received, he said, “will go directly to keeping” his family’s lights on and their rent, so they “don’t get evicted.”
In response, Swift donated $13,000 and revealed that she read about her situation in the Washington Post.
‘No one should have to feel the kind of stress that’s been put on you. I hope you and your beautiful family have a great holiday season,” he wrote on Selewski’s page.
