Taylor Swift Gives Back
March 09, 2014
Taylor Swift, the seven time Grammy winner who some call the "reigning queen of pop" has a net worth of 105 million dollars. That's right, 105 million dollars. She earned more than 50 million dollars each year on album sales, touring, and endorsements. The question is, what in the world do you do with 105 million dollars?
For Taylor, one easy answer is support people and causes who don't have 105 million dollars. Just recently, in November Taylor was part of a the Winter White Gala at Kensington Palace. She, and others performed to a small crowd (only 200 people) who paid for the chance to see such an intimate show. The proceeds from the concert went to support homeless teens.
How great is that? Taylor, and these other artists, were able to do what they love and raise money to support such a great cause.
That's not all, Taylor donates her time and money to support more than 26 charities including the Red Cross, Habitat for Humanity, Clothes off our Back, Children in Need, Feeding America, and Shriners Hospitals for Children, among others. Taylor supports causes that feed, clothe, care for, shelter, and entertain people in need all over the United States and the world.
That said, it makes you wonder whether Taylor's biggest achievement so far is winning seven Grammys or if it's all the lives and causes that directly benefit from her success.
What do you think? What would you do with 105 million dollars? Think about it, and let us know.
