Taylor Swift Donates £36,000 To Mum-of-five Whose Husband Died Of COVID-19

Award-winning singer Taylor Swift has donated a whopping £36,000 to a mother of five whose husband died of the novel coronavirus.


The singer and her mum gave the money to a GoFundMe appeal set up to support Vickie Quarles and her five children.


The woman's husband, Theodis Ray Quarles, 48, of Memphis, Tennessee, US, died before Christmas, according to the fundraiser.

The huge donation from Taylor, 31, and her 63-year-old mother, Andrea, meant the GoFundMe page met its $50,000 target in one go.


It has so far raised more than $60,000 (£44,000).


This is not the first time the Grammy Award-winner has helped out strangers. Last year, she gave £23,373 to a teenager, Vitoria Mario, who not could afford to go to University.


And in December, Taylor donated £9,500 each to two mothers experiencing difficulties due to the pandemic.
