Taylor Swift helped one firefighter who even couldn’t imagine he would get such big gift from the worldwide famous star.
A friend of one firefighter from Texas created a page on GoFundMe web-site. Firefighter’s family was in need and they didn’t expect to get help from such famous singer.
It happened on Saturday night. Aaron Van Riper was a volunteer firefighter. His life almost collapsed after he got a call to 911. People who called told about a terrible car crash that occurred in the town. When he arrived to the accident place, he realized that victims were his wife, Amber, and their little son.
On Wednesday evening he family’s friend immediately created GoFundMe account in order to raise money to cover some medical bills. Suddenly, a $15,000 donation appeared and it was signed “Taylor Swift.”
A lot of news reports stated that the donation was really made by Taylor Swift, but singer’s representative haven’t given any comments on the matter yet.
Aaron Van Riper’s son is home now, while his mother, firefighter’s wife is still in the hospital.
Although the largest donation to the family was made by Taylor Swift, many people have donated more that 2000 times. As a result, they raised $96,000 of its $125,000 goal.
