Hello Taylor Nation,

Here at the Swift Agency, just a guy who knows he’s lucky to have a ticket for the Red Tour, we’re going to get serious for a moment. Taylor Swift was be honored and performed at the Ripple of Hope Awards Dinner that took place at the New York Marriott Marquis Hotel in New York City last night, December 3. The event was organized by the Robert F. Kennedy Center for Justice and Human Rights.

No, she didn’t win it by mingling with the Kennedys. Someone should remind the critics she has donated half a million to the victims of the floods in Tennessee as well as 100,000 to victims of the floods in Iowa.

The Ripple of Hope Award “lauds leaders of the international business, entertainment, and activist communities who demonstrate commitment to social change,” according to the Robert F. Kennedy Center for Justice and Human Rights.

No video yet. Still waiting on rfkcenter.org to come up with some. When it’s up, you know I’ll be posting it.

The Enchantress was spotted at the One Direction private after party. She never sang with them during their concert at the Madison Square Garden, but based on pictures she joined the members of the group as well as friend and singer Ed Sheeran for some karaoke. If you’re curious, there’s some pictures and rumors on Mirror.

Taylor Swift will co-host the Grammy nominations concert with LL Cool J on December 5 on CBS.

Here’s the Blonde With The Sparkly Guitar with The Agency on stage during their performance. You know I just had to pick this picture.
