Taylor Swift Donates to Minneapolis Teens’ Fundraiser

Taylor Swift spotted a video from Minneapolis teens Yasmine and Grace Norman earlier this week — in which the pair said they were planning a “big haul” shopping trip to buy haircare and skin products for a local church seeking items for people of color in need in the city — and the pop superstar stepped up to help.

The singer, who made a strong political statement on Tuesday by tweeting out her support of Black Lives Matter, donated $1,300 to the cause after seeing the video, which was set to the tune of her activist call-to-arms “Only the Young.”

According to a tweet from Yasmine Norman, Swift wrote in the notes of her donation, “Yasmine and Grace, thank you SO MUCH for everything you’re doing to help people. Here’s a gift for this run, please let me know about anything in the future! Love, Taylor.”

Yasmine responded, tweeting, “THANK YOU @taylorswift13 You amaze me @grace_norman27 and I will be doing a supply run in Minneapolis to help families in need, many who’ve been affected my the riots.”

A source close to Swift confirmed the donation to Billboard.

The generous gift from Swift is the latest in a series of quiet donations the singer has made to fans during the COVID-19 pandemic lockdown. In March, Swift sent a series of personal stimulus checks to help Swifties get through the crisis.
