And the award for most caring human and animal lover on Earth goes to… Taylor Swift.

The singer and her mother, Andrea, donated $10,000 to help 5-year-old autistic boy Jacob Hill get a therapy dogKPRC2 News in Houston reports.

The donation was made via Jacob’s GoFundMe page after his sister, Jordan Fox, and cousin, Makaylee Duhon, both 12 years old, created a YouTube video in which they rewrote the lyrics to Taylor Swift‘s “Blank Space” requesting donations on Jacob’s behalf.

A therapy dog would help Jacob with anxiety and give him more independence.

“Jacob has a hard time making connections with people, so this is going to be probably Jacob’s first friend,” Jacob’s mother, Allison Hill, told KPRC2 News.

Jacob’s GoFundMe page originally asked for $12,500, and with Swift’s $10,000 contribution, donations have exceeded $13,700.

Swift submitted her donation with the following adorable message.
