Extreme floods in Louisiana this past week left the state in turmoil with massive damage and over a dozen killed, and Taylor Swift is donating $1 million to the state’s relief efforts. The pop star shared this statement with the the AP:
We began The 1989 World Tour in Louisiana, and the wonderful fans there made us feel completely at home. The fact that so many people in Louisiana have been forced out of their own homes this week is heartbreaking. I encourage those who can to help out and send your love and prayers their way during this devastating time.
