NEW YORK, May 6 : Taylor Swift’s philanthropy has far surpassed traditional charity donations amid the growing pandemic, and with a recent present for a Utah based nurse, she has left fans gushing.
The nurse in question, Whitney Hilton, a registered nurse at McKay-Dee Hospital in Ogden, Utah volunteered in New York in an attempt to aid Northwell Health’s Long Island Jewish Medical Center for the treatment of COVID-19 patients during the state’s height of crisis.
When she returned home to celebrate her 30th birthday, she was surprised by a package featuring Lover merchandise, alongside a handwritten note written by the singer. In commemoration, she uploaded pictures of the surprise to Twitter for other Swifties to see.
I need to PUBLICLY THANK TAYLOR SWIFT @taylorswift & @taylornation13 @treepaine for sending me a box full of Merch & a PERSONALIZED LETTER from Taylor herself for my 30th birthday/for going to NYC to help as a nurse. This was quite literally the BEST DAY OF MY LIFE.
According to a report by PEOPLE, Taylor wrote, “I wanted to send you some presents and to let you know I am so grateful for you. I can’t thank you enough for risking your life to help people and for spreading the message loudly that people need to hear about taking this seriously.”
“Also, I saw the photo of you from my show! Thank you for coming! I would love to give you a hug next time and thank you in person. With love and admiration, Taylor.”
