Following two years of painful legal woes, Taylor Swift scored a major victory in her case against David Mueller. Last week, a jury declared the former KYGO DJ guilty of sexual assault and battery against the singer, which occurred during a meet-and-greet encounter in 2013. Despite the inherent stress that comes with a situation like that, Swift has been a total class act from the beginning. Now that the trial's over, she continues to amaze us with her grace because she's already spreading the love to the people that stood by her.
During the trial, employees of Craftsy –– a Denver crafts company next to the courthouse in which Swift's trial was taking place –– created encouraging messages for the songstress with post-it notes and pasted them on their window every day. The messages included phrases like "Haterz Gonna Hate," "Fearless," and "Begin Again":
The empowering messages didn't go unnoticed by Swift. Being the awesome person that she is, the "Shake It Off" hitmaker sent an order of flowers for the employees as a thank you for their incredible encouragement efforts.
The official Craftsy Twitter page shared the loving gesture through its official Twitter account:
#TaylorSwift also sent the employees a note, thanking them for "brightening my day for every day I was in Denver." The spokesperson for Craftsy said the employees were beyond happy with their gifts (I mean, who wouldn't?).
This is only the first step in Swift's grand plan to give back as much as she can to others. As mentioned, following her groundbreaking legal victory, she stated she would donate money to organizations focused on helping people who've been victims of sexual abuse:
"I acknowledge the privilege that I benefit from in life, in society and in my ability to shoulder the enormous cost of defending myself in a trial like this. My hope is to help those whose voices should also be heard. Therefore, I will be making donations in the near future to multiple organizations that help sexual assault victims defend themselves."
Sexual assault cases are incredibly hard for the victims, and any bit of encouragement can help so it was amazing to see that the empowering messages from Craftsy's employee's inspired Swift so much.
