Hey M Girls!
We already know what a sweetie Taylor Swift is, and this just proves it more! Taylor has recently reached out to Kevin McGuire, a New Jersey high school student who is suffering from cancer, and invited him as her date to the ACMs after Kevin's family had started a Facebook campaign just last week asking Taylor to go to prom with Kevin.
You see, Kevin's family started a Facebook page titled "Taylor Swift Take Kevin McGuire to Prom" since Kevin is a huge fan of Tay, and it got a ton of attention and fans. Then, on Friday, Taylor posted on her own Facebook page: "Kevin, I'm so sorry but I won't be able to make it to your prom. But I was wondering, the ACM Awards are coming up... Would you be my date? Love, Taylor."
Kevin has accepted her invite, and is hoping to make the awards show April 1 in Las Vegas, if his treatment allows. He's currently at the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia.
On their Facebook page, the McGuire family wrote: "Taylor got back to us!!!! She is unable to attend Kevin's prom, although did one better- Invited Kevin to be her date to the Academy of Country Music Awards!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Thank you so so so so so much! The McGuire family could never show how grateful we are to all of you! We have won in more than one way.. we got Taylor to take Kevin on a date, and we have made so many good friends along the way!"
Wow -- that is so thoughtful of Tay. We hope Kevin is able to make it the ACMs with her!
Let's dish: -Which celeb would you invite to prom? Who would you love to go to an awards show with?
