The recent flood in Louisiana is labelled the worst it has seen in years. The flood damaged 40,000 homes and left 11 people dead. American singer, Taylor swift has announced that she will donate $1million to help with the disaster relief efforts.
We began The 1989 World Tour in Louisiana, and the wonderful fans there made us feel completely at home. The fact that so many people in Louisiana have been forced out of their own homes this week is heartbreaking,’ the 26-year-old said in a statement.
‘I encourage those who can to help out and send your love and prayers their way during this devastating time,’
This is not the first time Taylor swift has helped those in dire need, she has donated $50,000 to the children’s hospital in Philadelphia to help with the therapy tools for children suffering from cancer.
She also gave a fan of hers $50,000 suffering from leukemia in 2015 and another $50,000 to one of her backup dancer’s baby nephew baffling cancer.
