Taylor Swift is donating no less than $1 million to the relief effort tackling the tornados ravaging Middle Tennessee.
The singer uploaded a video to Instagram on Thursday wherein she described Nashville as “my home”. She continued: “the fact that so many people have lost their homes and so much more in Middle Tennessee is devastating to me.”
Swift included a link to the Middle Tennessee Emergency Response Fund, while donating $1 million of her own money to the effort.
A spokesperson for the 30-year-old confirmed the donation.
So far, 24 people have lost their lives as a result of the storms in the area. A tornado on Tuesday tore a 2-mile long path through Putnam County, killing 18 people, including five children under the age of 13.
Another storm then swept eastward from Nashville along a 50-mile path. That one killed a further five people, with another person losing their life in a county situated west of Nashville.
We’re sending all our thoughts and prayers for the people in Middle Tennessee. We hope you can recover what you’ve lost.
