Taylor Swift Sends Fan $1989 Check For Student Loans

Taylor Swift has once again sent a care package to a fan, which included several special gifts — including a check for $1,989.

The recipient of the surprise was Rebekah Bortnicker, who shared pictures of the package on her Tumblr blog. It was the check for $1,989 to help her pay off her student loans that left her in tears, according to ABC News.

The package arrived in a FedEx box — altered by Swift to read “SwiftEx” — with a handwritten note from the singer, whose most recent album is “1989.” The note said that Bortnicker is “so beautiful and positive” and the check would put her “$1989 closer to paying off those student loans.”

I know I’ve said it so many times already but thank you, thank you, thank you, from the bottom of my heart. Never in a million years did I ever imagine this happening to me. I am so honored and so thankful to call myself a fan, to have supported you all of these years because you are truly the most amazing, genuine, and selfless person.


Swift’s gift was a thoughtful way of thanking her fan, whose profile at thatcheshirecatsmile.com is a shrine to Swift and her own cats. Bortnicker posted a video of herself opening the gifts, as well as a photo of each item, according to US Magazine.

Among the gifts was a Polaroid of Swift painting, the artwork she painted for Bortnicker and a necklace with a tag that said “Was mine, now yours,” according to Billboard.

In November, Swift sent some of her Tumblr fans Christmas gifts she had purchased from around the world, including a tea set from Japan, an opal necklace from Australia
