It’s the season of giving, and Taylor Swift is doing her part.
As previously reported, she donated $13,000 each to two moms struggling to make ends meet during the COVID-19 pandemic. And in another recent gesture of kindness, the singer reached out to a fan who used her song “Christmas Tree Farm” in her family’s light display.
Sarah Bailey, a 25-year-old from Ohio, posted her family’s annual Christmas light show on social media, revealing in the caption that they were also providing a COVID-safe food dropbox for people to drop off donations for the local food bank.
Sarah tagged Taylor hoping she would see — and she did!
Taylor sent Sarah a DM, writing, “Sarah! I loved your family’s Christmas lights show!!! Thank you (and your dad) so much for using ‘Christmas Tree Farm’ to create such a fun spectacle.”
“I really love how you’ve chosen to give back by mentioning your local food bank,” she continued. “I’ve made a donation to Our Community Hunger Center in your hometown. Happy Holidays!”
Sarah tells Entertainment Tonight that when she saw Taylor’s message she “screamed and jumped up.”
“I immediately called everyone I know and posted the message on social media and the response has been incredible,” she says.
