Taylor Swift donates pink pickup to sick kids

Taylor Swift Pink Pickup

Story by Janis Fontaine

Taylor Swift’s first year as a country artist drew to a close with her third single from her eponymous album claiming the No. 1 spot for the fourth week in a row. Our Song, which Swift wrote for her ninth grade talent show, is her first No. 1 song, edging out Tim McGraw, a No. 6 hit, and Teardrops on My Guitar, which peaked at No. 2.

But having her album go double platinum was an even bigger milestone than her 18th birthday, which she celebrated December 13.

When Swift’s record company surprised her with a big pink pick-up as a birthday gift, Swift was flattered but wanted to do something really special with it and she did: She donated the truck to Victory Junction Gang, “a camp for really sick kids. That thought just makes me smile. For a few weeks, it’s being kept at the Country Music Hall of Fame here in Nashville, in case you want to go check it out,” Swift wrote on her myspace page.

Word is that the Victory Junction Gang Camp will use Swift’s truck to pick up children with serious medical conditions from the airport and take them to camp.

Swift officially presented the keys to the truck to NASCAR’s Kyle Petty and his wife, Pattie, at Sound & Speed.

Swift is performing at the 99.9 FM Kiss Chili Cookoff in Pembroke Pines on Jan. 27. We’re supposed to chat by phone sometime before that, so watch for the interview in TGIF.
