Taylor Swift Donates $15K to Local Firefighter Who Saved His Own Family

Swift secretly donated $15,000 to a GoFundMe account set up following a car crash that left the firefighter's wife and son in critical condition.

AceShowbiz - Taylor Swift once again proves that she is a real angel. The songstress recently shocked a Walker County volunteer firefighter's family with $15,000 donation after he saved his own wife and son from a horrible car crash that left them in critical condition.

The firefighter, Aaron Van Riper, responded to a 911 call on Sunday last week in regard to a car crash in Riverside, Texas. When he arrived at the site, he was shocked after finding that the victims were his own wife and son. They were then rushed to hospital.

While the son has been released from the hospital, the mother remained there. Later, a friend of the family set up a GoFundMe account to help the family cover their "excessive medical bills and lack of funds that will come in over the next year."

On Thursday morning, June 11, the largest donation was left for the family from someone named Taylor Swift. Though the star hasn't commented yet on the reports, it's strongly believed that the donor is indeed the singer.

Prior to the latest donation. Swift donated at least $50,000 to New York City's schools in February. A rep for the singer said that the amount would continue growing. "This is not a one-time donation. Taylor will continue to donate the proceeds she receives from the sale of the single 'Welcome to New York' to N.Y.C. public schools," the rep said.
