'She’s always checking up on us, and she just makes me feel so loved and so important,' Taylor Swift fan Samantha Jacobson tells PEOPLEdonated to several fans who publicly expressed their financial struggles during the global health crisis. One of them was Samantha Jacobson, who received a $3,000 donation after writing on her Tumblr that she has “no job, no income, no way to pay my bills” after her workplace shut down over coronavirus concerns. “I was in shock,” Jacobson — a 24-year-old cocktail server at a bar in Disney Springs in Orlando, Florida — tells PEOPLE of Swift’s surprise donation. “I was just speechless. I couldn’t believe someone I had looked up to and love and respected for so long has reached out with such generosity.” According to Jacobson, Swift reached out to her on Twitter and offered to help alleviate some of her financial burdens.

The fan shared screenshots of her exchange with Swift on the social media platform, in which the star said she’s like to donate to “help ease the strain.” “I will literally never be able to repay her for the sheer gesture of it—Never-mind the actual amount which is 3 mnths of rent for me,” the fan tweeted. “It’s a wonderfully humble example of acknowledging that her small change can really impact someone else. I feel seen. Thanks, @taylorswift13.” In summary: I’m shaking and crying and just fell over a rug in my rush to ask my brother if Taylor’s message was real &now I’m probably (definitely) concussed🥺🥰❣️♥️ This virus took my new dream job away but Read more: People

Kim Kardashian blasts Taylor Swift after feud with Kanye West is reignitedThe reality TV star took to Twitter Monday night to relay her version of what did – or didn't – happen during a phone call between husband Kanye West and Taylor Swift in 2016. Kim Kardashian should stop 'blasting' people. She's not relevant, and has no appropriate perch from which to blast. Who cares
Hey! I’m a fan..... I think. Is Taylor an actress? That's all Ms Swift did awesome to help people out. If your still working and your neighbor is not. Give them some cash what ever u can and help them out. I did that today. Im blessed, so be kind and just do it. Help your neighbor out. You need to correct your headline 🤦🏻♀️
legend TSwiftNZ Taylor proly didn't want this attention of being her normal self (extending help to people). But who could help a fan sharing good news that their idol reached out (through stalking 🤣) just gifted them $3,000 EACH.😊💜💜💜💜💜💜💜💜💜💜💜💜💜 TSwiftNZ It's just her normal self.. This isn't news.. Love you T...😘
the best idol 💞 TSwiftNZ This headline is misleading and poorly worded. Go Taylor! 💕 👏 noahlevy13 headline should read 'Taylor Swift Helps Fans Affected by Coronavirus Crisis with $3,000 Donations' The way it's written suggests she donated a total of $3,000 and not $3,000 to each of the fans she reached out to.
Kim Kardashian Goes on Tweet Storm Against Taylor SwiftKim Kardashian says 'this will be the last time' she speaks on her and Kanye West's ongoing feud with Taylor Swift . No one cares what KKK has to say Omg. The 🐀 is just so pathetic and I actually use to be a fan Hmm seems like KKW is backtracking to save face, yet again with something her husband and she have done. You lied and got caught, take your licks, lose a few million followers and teach impressionable young people to not lie.
Wow. Would have been better optics had she donated nothing. For TaylorSwift 3K is as disposable as toiletpaper taylorswift13 fire your PR team. How generous TSwiftNZ Read and help me if you can please! $3000.00. Seriously? WTF?!?! Give 1 million to small businesses to hire that girl so she can make 3k month!
3000 ummm 🧐
