Taylor Swift donates concert tickets and $10,000 to deaf students after give-away prank


Donation: Taylor Swift donated $10,000 and concert tickets to Boston's Horace Mann School for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing following a competition prank that disqualified them

Taylor Swift is giving $10,000 and concert tickets to a Boston school for the deaf after a prank during an online contest promising an on-campus performance by the Grammy-winning singer.
Horace Mann School for the Deaf was disqualified from the contest because many of the votes were from pranksters who thought it would be funny for a school for the deaf to win a concert.
Swift said every student at the K-12 school will receive a ticket to her next local concert.

Reaching out: Swift was honored at the Nickelodeon Kids' Choice Awards for her philanthropic contributions

She and the contest sponsors also donated $50,000 to the school, and VH1’s Save the Music program donated $10,000 in musical instruments.
‘Any kind of specific instrument that can be purchased to bring music alive for these students will go a long way,’ Boston Public School spokesman Matt Wilder said.
Harvey Mudd College in Claremont, California, won the on-campus concert and a $10,000 grant to its music department.
Forbes ranks the 22-year-old as the 11th most powerful celebrity with $57million in earnings as of May 2012.

She has won numerous awards for her many philanthropic endeavors, of which music education is just one.
In 2010, the country singer donated $75,000 to a Nashville, Tennessee high school for the refurbishment of their auditorium, and earlier this year she pledged $4million to create the new education center at the Country Music Hall of Fame.

Her latest donation to the Boston school moves her efforts up north, and while the scandal over the competition obviously gave incentive, this is not the only way that Swift has turned her attention toward Massachusetts.
She reportedly began dating Conor Kennedy, an 18-year-old member of the noted political family, this summer and bought a house near the family's famed Hyannis Port compound.
