Taylor recently teamed up with ACM Lifting Live to give a gift of $50,000 to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. We added a picture of it into the gallery and you can read more information below. It’s always great seeing her being involved with charities!
Taylor Swift just helped wrap up the 2011 CMA Music Festival, but the country/pop star’s big weekend wasn’t just about her. On Saturday, she joined with the Academy of Country Music‘s charitable arm ACM Lifting Lives to present St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital with a donation of $50,000.
The financial contribution comes as part of the ACM Lifting Lives Entertainer of the Year Matching Gift program. Lifting Lives teams up with the year’s reigning top entertainer — currently Swift — and doubles a gift that musician makes to the charity of their choice. Swift contributed $25,000, and Lifting Lives matched.
ACM Lifting Lives executive director Erin Spahn met up with Swift Saturday at her sold-out Speak Now tour stop in Detroit, and the two checks headed for St. Jude met up.
