Taylor Swift

The singer has made generous donations to her fans

Pop princess Taylor is all about random acts of kindness.

The megastar helped one pregnant British fan find a house when she found out she'd been homeless for eight months of her pregnancy. Meanwhile, in her hometown of Nashville, she paid for three months of health insurance for the entire staff of local record store, Grimey's, which was struggling to stay afloat during the pandemic.

Earlier this year she also gave over £20,000 to a young student, Vitoria Mario, who was crowd-funding to pay for her tuition fees at the University of Warwick. Having moved to the UK from Portugal four years ago, Vitoria was unable to apply for maintenance loans or grants and set up an online fundraiser so that she could study maths at the university.

"There's no doubt that she cares not only for her well being and future but also for others too. All I can say is thank you and please continue having that big heart that God gave you." - Vitoria Mario, who received a generous donation from Taylor Swift 

Since receiving a generous donation from the singer, Vitoria was more than surprised to read a response from Taylor. "Vitoria, I came across your story online and am so inspired by your drive and dedication to turning your dreams into reality," Taylor wrote. "I want to gift you the rest of your goal amount. Good luck with everything you do! Love, Taylor."

Speaking to HELLO! about what Taylor's kindness has meant to her, Vitoria said: "Taylor Swift is a very well known and talented singer and of course, I’ve always known about her. However, during this summer (August to be more precise) I was able to know her more personally.

"No, I didn't meet her but I was a beneficiary of her immense generosity as she donated more than £23k towards my campaign.

"There's no doubt that she cares not only for her well being and future but also for others too. It was indeed a surprise since I've never messaged or interacted with her prior to this summer. So all I can say is thank you and please continue having that big heart that God gave you."
