Lorde Gives Thousands of Dollars to a New Zealand Family in Need

Lorde Gives Thousands of Dollars to a New Zealand Family in Need

Lorde keeps it casual while listening to some music during a walk on Thursday (October 13) in New York City.

The 19-year-old singer hung out with BFF Taylor Swift and other squad mates the night before as they checked out a secret Kings of Leon concert.

Lorde recently made a donation of $10,000 to a family in New Zealand who has been struggling to survive.

Devora Busch, a mother of three kids, and her partner Richard Barry (who is unable to work due to hearing loss and other problems) found out their home was leaking, so they had to start paying rent somewhere else while repairs took place.

Meanwhile, the couple also has to pay for their daughter Rheegan‘s around-the-clock care, as she is severely autistic and suffers from a life-threatening eating disorder called pica (an uncontrollable urge to eat non-food items).

When a relative started a Givealittle page to raise funds for the family, Lorde happily stepped up to help. “Sending best wishes and love to you and your parents, Rhee. Xxxx,” she wrote.

“What an amazing young woman she is,” Devora told Woman’s Day. “There’s no personal connection so I’m very humbled that she would think of us.”
