Taylor Swift Surprises Two Mums Facing Eviction With $13k Donation

Taylor Swift is spreading a little kindness ahead of the holiday season.

The superstar just helped out two mums she read about in a Washington Post article discussing the millions of Americans who are currently unemployed and facing eviction:


The first is Nashville mum Nikki Cornwell, who’s $4,000 behind on her payments, had her water shut off this week and is about to be evicted. She received a $13,000 donation to her GoFundMe page from Taylor and this sweet message:

“Nikki, I read about you in the Washington Post and thought it was really brave of you to share your story. I’m sorry for everything you’ve had to go through this year and wanted to send you this gift, from one Nashville girl to another. Love, Taylor.”

The second $13,000 donation went to Shelbie Selewski who was $2,100 behind on rent and utilities and had her electricity cut off in September, on her son’s first week of virtual kindergarten.


“Shelbie, I’m sending you this gift after reading about you 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. Love, Taylor.”

According to GoFundMe, Taylor regularly contributes to random pages, helping out families and kids in need.

In August this year, the singer donated £23,373 to help a student go to university and live her dream of becoming a mathematician!

“In fact, in 2015, she was the reason we raised our maximum donation amount to $50,000,” the donation platform wrote on their Instagram page.

“Thank you Taylor, for continuing to inspire the world with your kindness and generosity.”
