This year, the singer surprised two mothers who have been struggling without jobs amid the pandemic: Shelbie Selewski of Michigan and Nikki Cornwell of Nashville. Cornwell’s family contracted COVID-19, while Selewski has a sick infant.
The two moms were recently featured in The Washington Post. After the article got Taylor’s attention, she made $13,000 donations to each — she factored in her favorite number, 13!
Sometimes stories move us toward action, connecting us to strangers.

She wrote on Cornwell’s page, “Nikki, I read about you in the Washington Post and thought it was really brave of you to share your story. I’m so sorry for everything you’ve had to go through this year and wanted to send you this gift, from one Nashville girl to another.”
She wrote on Selewski’s page, “No one should have to feel the kind of stress that’s been put on you. I hope you and your beautiful family have a great holiday season.”
Cornwell updated her page, saying, “Thank you a million times everyone if you all only knew how I feel I can’t began to describe im so grateful and im so shocked I still can’t believe it’s a dream come true big hugs and sending love to everyone thank you!!!”
