Taylor Swift has donated $1 million dollars to the Middle Tennessee Emergency Response Fund, which supports the communities hit by a string of tornadoes which destroyed parts of Tennessee, as well as assist the nonprofits helping the victims. Two tornadoes struck central Tennessee last week, leaving at least 24 people dead and hundreds of buildings destroyed.
“Nashville is my home and the fact that so many people have lost their homes and so much more in Middle Tennessee is devastating to me,” Swift posted on Instagram, encouraging her fans to donate what they could.
Other groups have donated funds to nonprofits on the ground, including the Tennessee Titans, which also chipped in $1 million. This isn’t the first time Swift has donated money toward relief efforts. In 2016, she also donated $1 million to Louisiana flood relief.
