NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Pop star Taylor Swift donated $1 million to the Middle Tennessee Emergency Response Fund to help those in need after tornadoes devastated the area Tuesday.

Swift posted on her Instagram about her hometown and the fact that so many people lost their homes and so much more, WKRN reported.

She encouraged others to donate, writing:

Nashville is my home and the fact that so many people have lost their homes and so much more in Middle Tennessee is devastating to me.

I’ve made a donation to the Middle Tennessee Emergency Response Fund.

On March 3, two tornadoes carved a devastating path through central Tennessee, leaving at least 24 people dead in their wake.

This isn’t the first time Swift has donated to help during a disaster. She gave $500,000 to flood relief in 2010 to help raise money for Nashville flood victims.

If you’d like to donate, WKRN and Nexstar Media are working with the Red Cross to raise money for victims of the tornadoes. Click here to give.
