Taylor Swift Donates $50K To 1989 Tour Dancer's Family Member

(Radio.com) Taylor Swift has once again used her fame and fortune for the greater good. People magazine reported on Thursday that the singer has donated $50,000 to the cancer-stricken nephew of one of her 1989 tour backup dancers, Kim "Toshi" Davidson.

Swift's generous donation was paid through a GoFundMe page, which was set up for the 13-month-old named Ayden. Swift even left a message on the page - which is titled "Help Baby Ayden Beat Cancer"- reading, "Baby Ayden, I'm lucky enough to perform with your uncle Toshi on tour. All of us are praying for you and your mama and sending so much love your way. Love, Taylor."

The original goal for Ayden's page was set for $20,000, but it's safe to say that Swift helped them go well beyond that. Davidson was touched by the gesture from the pop star and took to his Instagram to express his gratitude. Read the comments here.
