Less than two days ago Taylor Swift raked in several Billboard Music Awards but there’s something else she’s reveling in these days: Philanthropy. Taylor has already helped raise almost $1 million for tornado victims!
Taylor told Access Hollywood about a rehearsal benefit show to drum up money for victims who were impacted by the recent wrath of Mother Nature. “It was so wonderful,” she said. “It was almost like playing our first show because were playing for 13,000 people and it’s the whole show the way we would do the last dress rehearsal and I’m just so excited that we got to raise $750,000 dollars for the victims of the tornadoes.”
Right on the heels of earning Billboard Awards for the Top Country Artist, Top Country Album and Top Billboard 200 Artist, Taylor was most touched by the kindness of her fans. “It was such a wonderful night and I’ll never forget it — the fact that that many people on last minute’s notice wanted to come out and pay for their tickets and donate that money to them.”
