Taylor Swift has developed some pretty close relationships with some of her superfans, dubbed “Swifties.” So much so in fact, that she sent one of them an epic care package.

Social media queen Rebekah Borniker couldn’t have been more pleased when Taylor began following her on Tumblr and liking all of her posts, but she never would’ve expected what was soon to come in the mail.

A personalized package arrived for the student from “SwiftEx” (formally FedEx) containing a variety of heartfelt gifts from the pop-mogul herself. Amongst the gifts were a handwritten letter from new bestie TayTay, a pendant that she’d previously worn, a personalized painted piece of artwork for “Beks,” and the piece-de-resistance, a coin purse containing a check for $1,989 to help Rebekah pay off her student loans.

Rebekah’s mother caught the whole gift-giving ceremony on tape, and it’s clear that Taylor has made this girl’s year.

Here’s what Taylor’s handwritten card said: “Hi you. I was thinking about you today, and how you have been there cheering me on in the most thoughtful and creative ways. I’m not a good painter but I think you’re so beautiful and positive, even though you’re dealing with the stress life brings, so I wanted to make you something.” Whether Taylor actually sat down and painted Rebekah a picture or not, everyone definitely wins in this heartfelt publicity stunt.

So keep an eye on the mail for your own personalized T-Swift artwork we know we will!

Way to go Taylor!
