Taylor Swift has made another fan's wildest dreams come true. 12-year-old Jorja Hope was diagnosed with a condition that causes hearing loss. It was her dream to meet Swift before she lost her hearing. This weekend, that wish came true and the two met back stage at her concert in Sydney, Australia. The List's Donna Ruko shares 3 other charitable acts that warmed our hearts. 
1. This summer Taylor Swift donated $50,000 to Naomi Oakes who was diagnosed with leukemia. 
2. She donated all the proceeds from her song, "Welcome to New York" to New York City public schools. 
3. Last Christmas she delivered packages on her fan's doorsteps with heartfelt notes inside. 
Taylor Swift was named the "Most Charitable Celebrity" earlier this year for the third year in a row.  Feeding America, UNICEF and Habitat for Humanity are a few other charities she has contributed to.
