wo years ago, Taylor Swift donated $10,000 to help Jacob Hill get a service dog. Jacob has autism and tends to wander off. Swift donated the money after Jacob’s sister and cousin re-wrote Swift’s “Blank Space” and put it on YouTube, hoping for donations. Swift recently sent Jacob’s family front row tickets and backstage passes to her show. When they met backstage, Jacob’s mom said the superstar was beyond kind

“Taylor Swift was so kind. She said Reid was a big puffball and so cute. She was especially awesome with Jacob. She didn’t see my son’s disability she just saw him,” Allison shared in a Facebook post for Autism Speaks. “She got on her knees and looked him right in the eyes and said hello and she was thankful HE came to her show even though she knew it was loud and there was so much going on.”
