Pop star, Taylor Swift has donated $1 million dollars toward Louisiana flood relief efforts following torrential rains which left at least 11 people dead. Over 2,000 people were also displaced by the flood which prompted the Governor of Louisiana to declare a state of emergency.
Taylor Swift said in a statement; “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.”
