Shelbie Selewski reportedly makes $200 per week on unemployment, according to The Washington Post. She finally started a GoFundMe to help cover costs, the NYPost reported.
“I have never thought to make a GoFundMe, but with Christmas approaching I just didn’t know what else to do,” Selewski wrote in her listing, the outlet reported. “The money will go directly to keeping our lights on this holiday season and trying to pay some rent so we aren’t evicted. Any leftover money will go toward the kids.”
Swift is reportedly the top donor on Selewski’s fundraiser, according to the New York Post. (RELATED: REPORT: Taylor Swift Donates $30,000 To Student Trying To Pay For College)
“Shelbie, I’m sending you this gift after reading about you in the Washington Post. No one should have to feel the kind of stress that’s been put on you,” Swift said in her message to Selewski, the outlet reported. “I hope you and your beautiful family have a great holiday season. Love, Taylor.”
Swift also contributed to another womens’ funds after seeing the story.
“Nikki, I read about you in the Washington Post and thought it was really brave of you to share your story,” Swift wrote, according to the outlet. “I’m so sorry for everything you’ve had to go through this year and wanted to send you this gift, from one Nashville girl to another. Love, Taylor.”
You can not like Swift as much as you want, but she really is always looking for ways to directly give back to the community. I love that about her and is one of her best qualities, honestly. The holidays are already such a hard time of the year for people, so it’s nice to see her stepping up at a time like this.
