Taylor Swift and her cats are here to help!

After one of the singer’s fans shared a post on social media detailing her desperate financial plight, Swift donated $15,500 to the girl’s family over the weekend.

“My Mom has been in a coma for three years now,” 19-year-old Sadie Bartell wrote on Twitter earlier this month. “She had an ulcer that bled out that led to lack of oxygen to the brain which resulted in brain damage…We take care of her at home full time. My dad is unable to work because he has to always be with my Mom. My older brother and I have to provide for our family. My family is in trouble.”

The full-time student went on to share that despite having reached “breaking point,” Swift — whose 1989 world tour she saw just two days after her mother fell into the coma — had kept her “afloat through it all.” In response, the Grammy winner donated $15,500 to family’s GoFundMe page, simply signing it “Love, Taylor, Meredith and Olivia Swift.” The family has now raised more than $26,000, thanks in part to Swift’s generous contribution.
