Taylor Swift Sends Longtime Fan $3,000 Amid Coronavirus Pandemic

Taylor Swift is continuing to send money to some of her biggest fans!

The 30-year-old “The Man” singer has been reaching out to help fans who are struggling during the ongoing health crisis.

On April 1, Taylor surprised Connecticut native and college sophomore Jess Buslewicz with $3,000.

Jess had to move home from college due to the pandemic, causing her to lose two of her jobs.

“I’ve had a Tumblr account that I’ve had for like six years now I think, and Taylor happens to follow it,” Jess told RADIO.COM’s Morning MAGIC with David, Sue, & Kendra of MAGIC 106.7. “I wasn’t on campus anymore so I couldn’t do two of my campus jobs which were babysitting and tour guide.”

“I basically just posted [on Tumblr] that I was very anxious about the times that were to come and she luckily saw it,” Jess continued. “One day I was sitting on the couch and I got a PayPal notification that there was $3,000 in my account!”

She added, “There’s a little message with it and at the end she said, ‘p.s. it may be April 1st but this is not an April Fools joke!’ and without that little addendum I think I would’ve been a lot more nervous that it was a joke.”

“I have a screenshot of the message and I’m definitely going to print it out and when I’m back at school and put it on my wall for everyone to see,” she said.

Taylor also reached out to Jess in 2018: “Since she followed my Tumblr account she also saw one of my post that my sister and I were going to the concert [at Gillette Stadium] and she had her team reach out to me and say that she would like to meet me before the concert because I’ve been such a longtime fan.”

“She was holding my hands the entire time I was talking to her, she wouldn’t stop making eye contact, she said that she loved us, and she thanked us for coming to meet her and that she was so glad we came,” Jess shared.
