A video of a surprised Britta Thomason opening the gift package went viral on social media. According to Reuters, Thomason, who heads the Air Evac Lifeteam base in Dublin, was interviewed by a local newspaper about her job, in which she shared that she liked listening to Swift’s music to relax.
Weeks after the interview, Thomason got a call from the singer’s representatives about a package that will be delivered to her. “When I opened it, I was so nervous. I was shaking just because it was so surreal,” Thomason told the news website.

“I thought … there’s no way that this is what it is. When I opened it, the letter was actually sitting on top … I opened it up and I didn’t actually read the whole thing immediately. I just looked down … and saw her signature and I was in just complete shock,” she added.
According to the news website, the package included T-shirts, candles, a blanket, notebook and champagne glass along with a handwritten note by Swift that thanked her for serving on the frontline and being “brave enough to put yourself in danger to help others.”
Since being shared online, the video has gone viral on several social media platforms and prompted cheerful reactions among netizens.
A good wholsome story about a celebrity and a fan. It is good to see that some people who are given a platform do something positive with it. Bravo Swift.
