A girl in England needed to raise £40 000 to study her dream 4-year degree in Mathematics at Warwick University, so she decided to set up a GoFundMe page to raise money.

People began donating generously to help the star learner from East London getting the funds needed.

Taylor Swift read about this and, being the generous Taylor Swift, decided to help the learner follow her dream. She donated £23 000!

To bring this story closer to home, let’s see how much £23 000 is in South African Rand. At the time of writing this article, the Rand/Pound exchange rate was 23,77. This means that in South African Rand, Taylor Swift donated R546 710 towards this important degree.
