Taylor Swift has left one fan gobsmacked by presenting her with nearly $2,000 to help pay off her student loans.

The 'Shake It Off' singer sent a package to devoted fan Rebekah Bortnicker on 11 January, as a thank you for all Rebekah's support and positivity, which includes running a fansite.

And inside that box was a cheque for $1,989!

The cheque - which is a reference to Taylor's latest album 1989 - was accompanied by a message reading: "Rebekah, now you're $1989 closer to paying off those student loans."

Kind-hearted Taylor also included a necklace of her own with the message, "what is mine is yours" and a painting she had drawn especially for Rebekah. She even sent a photograph of herself painting the painting to prove it was authentic!

Wow, how amazing is that?!

As you'd expect, Rebekah was stunned by the generous gifts, tweeting: "I just love Taylor so much and I can't thank her enough for this."

She also said she wasn't interested in making any money from her story - that's a true fan, there!

Rebekah did share a video of her opening the package to YouTube, so other people could see Taylor's generosity.
