Taylor Swift is Donating $1 Million to Louisiana Flood Victims

Taylor Swift is donating $1 million to Louisiana flood relief following rains that led to widespread flooding in the state this past week, damaging thousands of homes and resulting in the deaths of at least 11 people.

The 26-year-old singer told the Associated Press on Tuesday that Louisiana residents had welcomed her warmly when she started off The 1989 World Tour there last year.

“We began The 1989 World Tour in Louisiana, and the wonderful fans there made us feel completely at home,” Taylor said in her statement. “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,” she added.

Over 30,000 people have been rescued from the flooding since Friday, according to Fox News.

    JJ can you stop using that SCARY ASS PICTURE PLEASE

  • Little Paper Stars

    I’d be impressed if she went there and started helping out instead of ordering her accountant to make a bank transfer

  • Florin Costel

    I’d be impressed if you went there and started helping out instead of bashing Taylor on a gossip site. I don’t understand why some people feel the need to belittle what it is an act of kindness and support.

  • Mona

    Her haters are already looking for reasons to write something hateful about her even regarding this. lol!

    Taylor has earned and deserves all her success, look how she gives back to those in need.

    Lives in $40m apartment alone.
    Donates $1 Million to the “thousands of homes”.

  • http://notly.ru/ Mapгapитa Бaбoвниковa

    she did it just to make her little fans think she is a good girl.

  • Little Paper Stars

    I live in the UK, in a heavy flood area and spent most of last winter helping out when people lost their homes, helping at a local shelter, and rescuing drowning livestock from fields, we rehomed over 200 displaced sheep, supplied over 500 bales of hay to farmers who lost their supply and took in 23 horses who’s stables were flooded, I’ve done my bit in the past.

  • Mona

    What are you doing to help humanity? She doesn’t have to give anything…

  • Mona

    Well you’re here talking shit about her on the internet from Russia… while her money is going to help victims in Louisiana. She is a good girl. You’re nothing more than a hater.

  • Mona

    Taylor is a human being too. You’re here hating on her for no good reason…. I don’t believe you’re a decent human being for a second.

    Ps. she can’t fucking go there! The area is completely flooded, people are actually getting out of there not going in.

  • Little Paper Stars

    I couldn’t care less what you think tbh. Good for her, she has a million dollars to give away, she’s worked hard for it. But it’s very easy to give away money when you have a lot of it, I’m sure it’s appreciated, but personally, I’d think more highly of her if she were to go there and get her hands dirty, boots on the ground means more in these situations in my experience. That’s my opinion, you have yours

  • Mona

    Your opinion makes no sense to me. She’s a fucking pop-star, she doesn’t have to give or do anything, let alone what you’re suggesting going to the flooded area and risking her life just to show she cares…What she’s doing is perfect.

  • Little Paper Stars

    I’m sure she didn’t take her pubic image into account for one second when she made the decision to donate

  • Mona

    We have many celebs here in America, let’s see how many of them donate to this cause…. What she did was good, you a loser on the net cannot take that away from her.

  • Little Paper Stars

    I didn’t say it wasn’t good, my opinion is that it’s easy. I’m sure there are displaced families away from the dangerous flood area who might appreciate her helping to distribute food etc. You defending her so vehemently online isn’t going to help her either really is it?

  • Mona

    I am not necessarily doing it to help her. I’m just disgusted by people who will always try to find a way to crap on others for no good reason. I’ve noticed some do that a lot with Taylor, and it’s because they envy her.

  • Be kind to one another.

    Nice gesture, maybe other people will follow her lead.

  • Little Paper Stars

    Oh yes, I’m supposed to be jealous of her, I forget, that’s meant to be the reason I have an opinion. There’s crapping on her, and there’s crapping on her. I appreciate she works hard, I’ve said what she’s done is a good thing, but I’d like to see her put something else other than money towards a cause, because, as I’ve said before, when you have a lot of it, it’s easy to make a call. I’d think this of any celeb who did the same thing, it’s not her specifically. If flew out to Louisiana, to a safe part, even to spend time with displaced families, it could do a lot more than just donating money. She is a global influencer, one picture of her with families who survived would probably raise more awareness than a fleeting story about how she gave money.

  • Mona

    Again she doesn’t have to do anything, she’s donating a million dollars to the victims. You’re here trying to belittle this and make it look like she’s done nothing while at the same time trying to make it look like you’re not just another hater. I don’t have time for your bs. Bye!

  • Brink

    That was very generous of her. I’m sure it will help a lot of people.

  • disqus_0PvC7vLXE2

    Ouch! This is so good! Haha! XD Tell me about it. I give money to red cross & dogs rescues every month. And it’s a good thing I canhardly find 100 bucks on my bank account. Since the rent is so expensive and living etc…

  • Marie

    Yep … $1 million just to “prove” she is a good girl. You are an asshole Map …

  • Marie

    No .. I think you lie. Anyone who did what you say you did would NOT dump on anyone else’s efforts to help out.

  • http://notly.ru/ Mapгapитa Бaбoвниковa

    easy money.

  • Marie

    You are not a very compassionate person to hate on anyone else’s efforts to help others … regardless if it is financial or physical .. that money will be appreciated by those who desperately need it right now.

  • http://notly.ru/ Mapгapитa Бaбoвниковa

    and you are in the middle school.
    you need to learn a lot of about life in next years.

  • http://notly.ru/ Mapгapитa Бaбoвниковa

    easy money.

  • http://notly.ru/ Mapгapитa Бaбoвниковa

    sorry for you. do you want to talk about it?

  • http://notly.ru/ Mapгapитa Бaбoвниковa

    the point is she doesn’t care about humanity, it’s all publicity and SHE KNOWS WHICH BUTTON TO PUSH TO MAKE STUPID PEOPLE like you BELIEVE HER.

  • http://notly.ru/ Mapгapитa Бaбoвниковa

    “help humanity”. you are an idiot by good will.
    next thing is a facebook photo with disabled little girl.

  • http://notly.ru/ Mapгapитa Бaбoвниковa

    that million will paid off from her little fans who will buy her next album twice thinking she is altruistic good girl. SUPPORT GOOD GIRL, MARIE!

  • Florin Costel

    And Taylor’s 1 million dollar will do its bit. Just because she chooses to help in this way doesn’t make her help less efective.

  • http://notly.ru/ Mapгapитa Бaбoвниковa

    would you like to think about if you invest in yourself all money you have now you could earn more in future?

  • Marie

    You are really unbelievable!

  • http://notly.ru/ Mapгapитa Бaбoвниковa

    would you like to think about if you invest in yourself all money you have now you could earn more in future?

  • Little Paper Stars

    I didn’t say it didn’t, but it’s very easy to donate a million dollars when you have it to spare, making that effort to give up your time, in my opinion, (and it is just my opinion, just like you have yours and that’s great) would perhaps mean more to people effected by this

  • Little Paper Stars

    You can think what you like, but. It’s my opinion that giving money when you have money requires little effort. Giving time, is something more than money.

  • Little Paper Stars

    Having an opinion is not hating, there’s nothing defamatory in anything I’ve said about her, but don’t make assumptions and statements about me when you don’t know what type of person I am. I have plenty of compassion, thanks, my mum is in end stage cancer and I’ve given up my job, a relationship and my home to move back and look after her. Of course you probably think I’m lying about that too, or would you like to see her hooked up to a machine so I can prove that to you?

  • kelly

    You know her personally? No. So you have no idea what her intentions are. Regardless, she’s donating money that will help the families who have lost everything. And you aren’t. End of story.

  • http://notly.ru/ Mapгapитa Бaбoвниковa

    Regardless, Hitler loved his dogs.

  • http://notly.ru/ Mapгapитa Бaбoвниковa

    Government should help families who have lost everything. Not a pop stars with bad media coverage in last month to whiten it. End of story. Go vote for your elitaristic Hilary now.

  • HankHill/Back the Badge

    This is a PR attempt to overshadow the cheating rumors and try to cover up the fact that she is an easy hore.

  • A.

    Dude, it’s great you’re a good person, but criticizing someone for giving money instead of actually going there? Believe me, people there will have more use out of the money then her being there for a few days. Plus everyone who would follow her there, not necessarily to help. Imagine all the paparazzi and press. I’m sure that’s what people hit by this tragedy need right now.
    I’m sure they are just fine with the money.

  • ana

    WHATS YOUR PROBLEM?? WHY SO MUCH HATE??, EVEN IF SHE IS DOIN IT JUST TO GET BACK ON TOP, SHE IS HELPING REGARDLESS OF REAL INTENTIONS, SO SHUT YOUR WHINNY MOUTH ALREADY!

  • http://notly.ru/ Mapгapитa Бaбoвниковa

    WHATS YOUR PROBLEM?? WHY SO MUCH HATE?

  • kelly

    So if the government helps out with relief, everyone else shouldn’t? I doubt these broken families give a shit who is giving them the money. Stupidest thing I’ve ever heard. But then again I’m assuming you’re a Trump supporter so no surprise there. He does love the uneducated.

  • ana

    I meant her looser, and to you.. Yes so?

  • la petite bonnieux

    This was such a bad look for her. She looks almost manly

  • Leyzzle Swizzle
