What was supposed to be a day of celebration and unity wound up in tragedy. During the Kansas City parade in honor of the Chiefs' Super Bowl win, a deadly shooting occurred, leaving one person losing their life and twenty-two injured, with half being children. While immensely devastating on all levels, it ignited kindness within others, including Taylor Swift.

Taylor attended the Big Game on February 11th to support her boyfriend, Chiefs' tight end Travis Kelce. The game went over in anticipating halftime, and quarterback Patrick Mahomes made the toss to Mecole Hardman, who scored the winning touchdown. He later revealed that he "blacked out" when he caught the ball but ran to the goal line, securing the win.

The Chiefs were bestowed with numerous events following their historic win and third Super Bowl championship. Wednesday's Super Bowl celebratory parade in Kansas City, Missouri, where the players and their families attended, was one of them. However, the light-hearted day was quickly darkened.

DJ Lisa Lopez-Galvan lost her life due to senseless violence. She left behind two children, Marc and Andriana, and her husband of twenty-two years, per CNN and the family's GoFundMe page. Through the generosity of others, the goal of $75,000 was exceeded to over $300,000.

One of the donors was Taylor Swift, who made two increments of $50,000, totaling the amount to $100,000. In her comment, she expressed comforting words for the Lopez-Galvan family.

"Sending my deepest sympathies and condolences in the wake of your devastating loss. With love Taylor Swift."

Taylor didn't attend the parade as she's currently in Australia for her Eras Tour, but Travis was, as were Mahomes and the rest of the Chiefs. Travis took a moment on the Twitter platform and wrote about the tragedy.

Travis followed his girlfriend's lead and made two $50,000 donations to the Reyes family, whose two young daughters were among the injured. The money will go to medical, mental, and physical bills as the girls have several months to heal. Furthermore, Mahomes and his wife Brittany visited the Reyes family in the hospital, bringing some much-needed light.
