Taylor Swift is taking action after deadly tornadoes destroyed parts of central Tennessee early Tuesday. The singer has donated $1 million to the Middle Tennessee Emergency Response Fund, Swift’s publicist confirmed to CNN.
The fund supports “affected communities and nonprofits helping victims address their ongoing needs,” according to the foundation’s website.
Swift, a long-time Nashville resident, shared her support for the affected Tennessee community on her Instagram stories Thursday, along with a link to the emergency fund so fans could donate as well.
“Nashville is my home and the fact that so many people have lost their homes and so much more in Middle Tennessee is devastating to me,” she wrote in the now-expired stories.
Donations made to the Middle Tennessee Emergency Response Fund will go toward providing vital services both immediate and long term, including delivering vital services. More information can be found here.
Swift joins a growing number of artists and public figures donating to relief efforts. Dan + Shay donated $100,000 to tornado relief, just a day before the duo’s sold-out double performances at the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville. Country singer Chris Young donated $50,000 to the NCVC’s Music Inc. Foundation recovery fund, which has also received contributions from Brad Paisley, Justin Timberlake, Caleb Followill and Lily Aldridge.
Sheryl Crow shared on Twitter that a portion of proceeds from her weekend clothing sale will be donated to the Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee.
Back in 2016, Swift donated $1 million toward Louisiana flood relief efforts, after the state experienced devastating torrential rains and massive flooding.
