Taylor Swift donates 10,000$ to autistic 5year old boy so he can get a therapy dog

When 12-year-old cousins Jordan Fox and Makaylee Duhon decided to cover Taylor Swift's "Blank Space," they probably didn't expect Swift to see the video.

And when they sang, "We got a long list of donations/ But we don't see your name/ We got a blank space baby/ So donate today," they probably didn't anticipate needing to save a space for Swift herself.

The girls made the video to raise money so that Jordan's brother could get a therapy dog. Five-year-old Jacob Hill has autism, and according to Jacob's Gofundme page, a therapy dog would help him by relieving his anxiety and protecting him from moving cars and water, which would provide him with more independence.

About a month after posting the video, Jordan and Makaylee got a huge surprise when Taylor Swift donated $10,000 after seeing their video.

Taylor and her mother, Andrea Swift, commented on the page, "Jacob, we hope you love your new dog! Please tell your cousins that they did a great job on the song! Love, Taylor and Andrea Swift."

Jordan and Jacob's mom, Allison Hill, told the girls about Swift's donation. "She was like, 'Taylor Swift just donated $10,000,'" Makaylee told Houston NBC affiliate KPRC2 News." And we were all like, 'Oh my gosh!'"



Allison was equally as shocked and extremely thankful, writing on Facebook, "We will never be able to thank our precious friends, family, and Taylor Swift (seriously so crazy) enough for helping our baby get his autism service dog! We are so filled with gratitude."

The family needed to raise $13,500 dollars for Autism Service Dogs of America to begin training a dog for Jacob, and thanks to Swift, as well as friends and family, Jacob plans to welcome his new companion within a year and a half.
