Taylor Swift is focusing on her fans after her recent breakup from Tom Hiddleston.

The "Shake It Off" singer took to Facetime this week to chat with a terminally ill 18-year-old girl named Meghan Hils after seeing her father's Facebook post about how his daughter wanted to meet Swift but "reasoned that she was too popular."

Through the Dream Foundation, Hils got her wish, and penned a heartfelt thank you note to Swift. "The words thank you will never be enough to say to Taylor Alison Swift for this day," she wrote. "Thank you from the bottom of my heart."

Swift's good deeds didn't stop there. She also made a $5,000 contribution to a GoFundMe account for the family of Katie Beth Carther, a fan who died earlier this week after she got in a car accident with a semi-truck in Alabama.

Swift attached a note made out to Carter's sister, writing: "Kimi, No words could express how sorry I am for your loss. I know that you will keep Katie’s memory alive.”

Prior to Swift's donation, Kimi paid tribute to her late sister on Instagram, and mentioned that they would "sing Hamilton and Taylor Swift at the top of our lungs in the car." The family's GoFundMe goal was set for $40,000 and they're already over $35,000, with over 500 people donating.

The 26-year-old GRAMMY winner is known for going above and beyond for her Swifties. Last month when she was picked for jury duty in Nashville, Tennessee, Swift happily posed for selfies with her fellow potential jurors. Check it out:
