A staggering amount of the $1 million donation vow is headed to Baton Rouge.

It's one thing to vow to make a donation. It's another to put that money to work in tangible places. It wasn't too long ago that Taylor Swift vowed to donate $1 million to help with Louisiana flood relief efforts, but now we are seeing the money put to use. $50,000 of that money is going directly to the Greater Baton Rouge Food Bank.

The news was confirmed by the organization on social media.


According to People, there is still much to be done in south Louisiana and resources are struggling to meet demand as the region tries to put themselves back together. The outlet is reporting that over six trillion gallons of rain fell on the state in less than a week. It's the worst natural disaster to hit the US since Hurricane Sandy according to the Red Cross.
