And the award for most caring human and animal lover on Earth goes to… Taylor Swift.
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.
KPRC2 News reports that Jacob’s therapy dog will be will trained and sent to him with the next 18 to 24 months.
