Taylor Swift gives $250,000 to tornado relief fund

TUSCALOOSA, AL. (AP) - Authorities say music artist Taylor Swift's charitable organization is giving $250,000 to aid tornado relief efforts in Alabama.

University of Alabama athletic officials say the money from Swift's "Speak Now...Help Now" fund is being donated to Nick's Kids, a fund established by Nick and Terry Saban.

Nick's Kids has partnered with Project Team Up and Habitat for Humanity to rebuild homes after the April 27 tornadoes.

Alabama head football coach Nick Saban said in a statement that Swift's gift will go a long way in helping the rebuilding efforts.
