Taylor Swift's Latest Music Video Will Benefit Wildlife in Africa
Superstar and super giver Taylor Swift strikes again.
The singer is donating funds to conservation efforts in Africa through proceeds from her latest music video, “Wildest Dreams.”
Swift debuted the video at this weekend’s VMA Awards (which she basically swept, by the way). Featuring a slew of African wildlife, including elephants, giraffes and a beautiful lion, the video definitely has an “Out of Africa” feeling.
While everyone was swept away by the old Hollywood glamour feel of the video (not to mention the dreaminess of co-star Scott Eastwood, if you’re into that sort of thing), we were most impressed with the closing image, which read: “all proceeds from the video will be donated to wild conservation efforts through the African Parks Foundation of America.”
Swift not only continues to excite us with her artistry, but also with her seemingly innate sense of generosity. Earlier this year, the singer donated $50,000 to New York City’s public schools through the proceeds of her single, “Welcome to New York.”
We commend Swift on her commitment to helping dreams come true for other people, and now, animals.
