Taylor Swift Rewards Fan's Kindness With Handwritten Letter


Taylor Swift has given another young fan a surprise of a lifetime.

The pop superstar sent a package to Emerson Weber, an 11-year-old Swiftie in Sioux Falls, South Dakota who has for weeks been writing letters to thank postal workers on the job during the COVID-19 crisis.

“Today was a fairytale,” the girl’s father Hugh Weber said on Twitter. “I’m not sure I can fully capture what we just experienced, but I’ll do my best.”

He went on to detail the moments after Emerson received a parcel in the mail with a sticker that read: “Please Handle With Care. Thank You.”

“I cut the box open while we sorted through some other mail,” Weber said. “And, then… Em pulled back the packing materials to reveal a bubble wrapped gift. On it, we saw a tag that simply said, ‘To Em. From Tay.’ Talk about breathless. I’ll admit. Our brains broke for a minute. We put the gift and the packaging back in the box. And, waited an hour.

“No joke. Sometimes, you need to calm down.”

Inside was an envelope with a “TAS” wax seal containing a handwritten letter from Swift.

“Most of the letter is personal and between Em & Taylor,” wrote Weber, who shared some highlights.

“She was touched... honoured... happy... to hear about Emerson mentioning her & her music in her letters. But, she found it more important that she ‘writes letters to people who don’t expect a thank you.’

“She saw in Emerson’s story ‘an innate sense of empathy, a curiosity about the feelings of strangers, and the drive to try to brighten someone’s day.’”

The singer also shared some important words for Emerson: “I hope you’re feeling good during isolation & not too lonely…

“Make sure to find time to create & daydream…

“And remember, no one expects you to be perfect...you’ve already set a really cool example and I’m proud of you. :)”

Swift gifted Emerson with a “13” wax seal tool and a pair of Lover shirts.

“We’re a puddle of tears over here,” Weber said, “and, it has nothing to do with Taylor’s celebrity. It has everything to do with her humanity.”
