The singer has reached out to several fans who are struggling financially amid the outbreak to lend a helping hand, in the form of several thousand dollars.
With the country largely shutting down in an effort to promote social distancing and slow the devastating spread of COVID-19, millions of people are finding themselves out of work and financially unstable.
One woman, a freelance photographer living in New York, took to Tumblr to share a plea for help, explaining that everything she lived for was at stake because she simply didn't have the resources.
"There are only two things that have consistently provided me with the will to live, two things that have been the reason why I get out of bed in the morning for ten years: freelance photography and living in New York," Holly Turner shared in an emotional post. "And both of those things are about to be stripped from me."
After sharing her Venmo and PayPal links in the hope that anyone might be able to spare some money to keep her dreams alive, Turner was shocked when Swift personally sent her $3,000.
"Holly, You've always been there for me. I want to be there for you right now," Swift wrote in a message along with the donation. "I hope this helps. Love, Taylor."
"I made a post on tumblr about how i was scared i wouldn't be able to stay living in NYC because of what corona has done to the music industry. @taylorswift13 literally single-handedly saved my ability to stay here," Turner wrote, in gratitude. "I cannot even believe my eyes right now."

Another Swift fan, Samantha Jacobson, also shared a Tumblr post in which she said she wanted to donate to Feeding America -- a charity Swift had advocated for on Instagram earlier in the week -- but "because of COVID-19 my job, my only source of income, is closed for a minimum of 30 days. I have no job, no income, no way to pay my bills rn. If anyone happens to be able to donate and has it in their hearts to do so, anything really really helps with bills right now."
In response, Swift reached out to Jacobson directly, messaging her about the best way in which she could transfer $3,000 to her longtime fan in her time of need.

In an interview with ET's Denny Directo on Thursday, Jacobson said she's "still trying to wrap my head around" Swift's big gift. "It's crazy. It's just so wild," she shared. Jacobson called her mom in tears when she realized what Swift had done.
"I'm a cocktail server at a dueling piano bar at one of the resorts at Disney World," she explained, noting that with restaurants closing due to COVID-19 precautions, she was suddenly left out of a job. Swift's generosity "meant everything."
"I've been a fan of hers for almost 14 years now. I've seen her live almost 30 times. She's just a really important person to me," Jacobson said. "I thanked her. I told her how much it means to me."
