Her heart is as golden as her hair!
Country star Taylor Swift has announced that she’s donating $100,000 to the Cedar Rapids, Iowa branch of the Red Cross.
Two months ago, Cedar Rapids suffered millions of dollars in damages and thousands of job losses at the hands of what is called “Iowa’s Katrina”. Torrential rains caused the Cedar River to swell and submerge the town.
A source close to the singer said, “Taylor was going to cancel the concert, thinking few people could attend, but the mayor of Cedar Rapids asked her to carry on.”
Swift says, “The people in this town have been through so much loss this year, and my heart goes out to them. They’ve stood by me, they gave me a sold-out show. You’ve got to pay it forward in life – that’s all I did in Cedar Rapids.”
