Taylor Swift So Generous GoFundMe Forced To Change Limit

Taylor Swift is known for being generous with her time and money for her fans but this is next level.Β 

The songstress this week has donated $50,000 to the GoFundMe account of a toddler who has recently been diagnosed with cancer.Β 

The 13 month old Ayden is the nephew of one of her backup dancers, Kim 'Toshi' Davidson, who announced the diagnosis on Instagram yesterday.Β 

She even left a message for the family - despite having never met them.Β 

So I get off the plane in Toronto and this is the 1st thing I see... @taylorswift is an angel and My family and I can't thank her enough... She is such an incredible human being... This will help Lil Toshi in this time of need... Let's pray for him to beat this... This unexpected gift is truly a blessing... πŸ™πŸΎπŸ™πŸΎπŸ™πŸΎπŸ™πŸΎπŸ™πŸΎπŸ™πŸΎπŸ™πŸΎπŸ™πŸΎπŸ™πŸΎπŸ™πŸΎπŸ™πŸΎπŸ™πŸΎπŸ™πŸΎπŸ™πŸΎπŸ™πŸΎπŸ™πŸΎ #helpbabyAydenbeatcancer #fuckcancer #cancer #gofundme #taylorswift #greatestbossintheworld #amazinghuman #blessing #angel #nephew #lilToshi #live #life #love

The original GoFundMe target for baby Ayden was $20,000.Β 

In fact this isn't the first time Taylor has made a huge donation to a child's cancer battle.Β 

In July the singer donated $50,000 to 11 year old Naomi Oakes, who was a big fan.

Previous to her donation, GoFundMe had a limit on donations at $15k... Obviously that has now been raised to $50k and we say bravo.Β 

At the time Swift had to pay in increments - three payments of $15k and one of $5 to make her full donation.

If people have the means to donate that amount and the generosity in their hearts, then the world will be a better place.Β 

Taylor's message to accompany the donation was as follows.Β 

β€œTo the beautiful and brave Naomi, I'm sorry you have to miss it, but there will always be more concerts. Let's focus on getting you feeling better. I'm sending the biggest hugs to you and your family.” 

When Naomi realised her favourite singer had donated to her plight she had this to say.Β 

Taylor opened up about her own mother being diagnosed with cancer earlier this year.Β
