During the “Flood Relief with Vince Gill and Friends” telethon that was held on a local tv station in Tennessee, it was announced that Taylor Swift is donating $500,000 to the flood relief in Nashville.
“Being at home during the storm, I honestly could not believe what was happening to the city and the people I love so dearly,” Taylor Swift told The Associated Press in an e-mail. “Nashville is my home, and the reason why I get to do what I love. I have always been proud to be a Nashvillian, but especially now, seeing the love that runs through this city when there are people in crisis.”
The donated funds will go directly to various organizations for flood relief.
