Taylor Swift Sends Fan $1989 to Help With Student Loans
Christmas is over, but Taylor Swift's giving spirit hasn't faded. The singer has once again gone above and beyond to help a fan in need, this time, financially.
Kansas Swiftie Rebekah Bortniker got a huge surprise when Swift followed her on Tumblr and began to "stalk" her page, even liking several of her posts. But that was just the beginning. The 'Blank Space' superstar left a clue in the form of one single emoticon -- an envelope with a heart -- hinting that mail was coming her way. According to BuzzFeed, Swift's bodyguard soon hand-delivered a package, claiming it was from "SwiftEx."
Inside was more than the fan could imagine.
Bortniker received a handwritten letter from the singer, a painting by Swift's own hand, a Polaroid showing the star painting the picture and the words "just sitting around painting flowers for Rebekah." On a satin pillow, Swift enclosed a necklace that was once her own. The necklace came with a note, too -- "Beks - was mine, now yours" -- but it was the check that will likely help the fan most.
Swift sent Bortniker $1989 (which, appropriately, is the title of her new album) to help her pay off her student loans. When she saw the check, Bortniker couldn't help but open the flood gates Watch the entire sweet video of the fan absolutely losing it above.
