Tayor Swift has opening her heart and her checkbook to Louisiana flooding victims. The pop singer donated $1 million to Louisiana flood victims, many of whom lost their worldly possessions.
She told the Associated Press that Louisiana was so welcoming to her when she toured there.
“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,” Swift said.
Airbnb also joined the relief effort by donating free rentals to Louisiana victims.
“People are losing everything they have,” Airbnb representative Nick Shapiro told The Huffington Post. “We have an ability to help people, at least in the short term, to get a comfortable bed, a home-cooked meal ? which is a very different experience from what they’d get in a shelter.”
