    Taylor Swift has cemented her place as the world’s sweetest celeb by donating $10,000 to buy a therapy dog for a child with autism.
    The singer donated to five-year-old Jacob Hill‘s cause after she spotted a video of his sister Jordan Fox and her cousin Makaylee Duhon covering one of her songs to raise money.
    Jordan and Makaylee, who are both 12 years old, had covered Swift’s ‘Blank Space’ but with their own lyrics, in which they asked people to donate to buy their brother Jacob a therapy dog.
    It was then that Taylor and her mum Andrea leant of the family’s plight and donated.

    ‘He not only has difficulty following commands, he has no sense of danger and is prone to wandering,’ it reads.
    While the therapy dog is a major blessing for Jacob, it also comes at a huge price that has now been met by the singer.
