Taylor Swift has opened up her wallet for a 19-year-old fan’s GoFundMe campaign.
Self-identified Swift fan Sadie tweeted about her family’s plight this past weekend. Her mother, Laurieann, has been in a coma for the past three years and her father is unable to work because he is a full-time caregiver for his wife and six children.
“My Mom has been in a coma for three years now. She had an ulcer that bled out that led to lack of oxygen to the brain which resulted in brain damage,” Sadie posted to Twitter with a link to a GoFundMe campaign earlier this month. “I’m sorry I never said anything sooner and that I’m suddenly asking for help. I love you guys so much.”
Over the weekend, Swift donated $15,000 to Sadie’s family via the online campaign. The “Shake It Off” singer made the donation, signing off with “Love Taylor, Meredith and Olivia Swift” – her two cats.
The campaign has now surpassed its $25,000 goal.
