Taylor Swift is expressing her appreciation for a deserving nurse! On Tuesday, Britta Thomason, a Georgia-based flight nurse who served on the front lines of the COVID-19 pandemic, revealed on Facebook that he received a package from Swift.
It all started when Thomason gave an interview to The Telegraphand shared with the medium some things he enjoys outside of work.
“I love going out with my friends, my boyfriend and just getting away from work is always good because what we do is difficult and you see a lot of difficult things,” she said. “I love traveling. I love going to the beach. I’m quite low-key. I don’t like doing a lot of fancy things. I like simple things.”
However, it was the last line of his answer that caught Swift’s attention. “I love Taylor Swift. I’m a Swiftie. I won’t deny it,” Thomason said.
That statement prompted Swift to send a package to Thomason, a fact front-line workers couldn’t believe.
“Everyone. EVERYONE !! I mentioned in a recent news article with The Telegraph & macon.com that I’m a huge Taylor Swift fan … and this showed up at work today !!” Thomason wrote on Facebook. “I’ve always seen videos of her fans opening packages that she sent them, but I never thought I would be one of them!”
“I’m not a fan of anything, but if you know me, you’ll know I’m a Swiftie!” She continued. “Ignore me … I’ll be crying the rest of the day Taylor, thank you!”
Swift’s sweet gift included a handwritten note and a merchandise pack. In addition to photos of the note and gifts, Thomason shared a video of herself opening the package.
In the sweet clip, Thomason repeated “Oh my gosh”, taking it all in, before reading the note aloud to his colleagues.
“I wanted to write to you and personally thank you for serving on the front lines of this pandemic and for being brave enough to put yourself in harm’s way to help others,” Swift wrote. “I am so inspired by his passion for helping and caring for his patients, and I was so touched that he recently mentioned that he liked my music!”
“I sent you comfortable clothes for when you are not on duty,” he continued referring to the package he sent, which included guitar picks, a bottle of water, clothing, a candle and much more. “I will be thinking of you and eternally grateful!”
“How cool is this?” Thomason marveled as he finished reading the note and began to unpack the multitude of gifts. “Oh my gosh. I can’t believe it.”
