Whether she means to or not, Taylor Swift is sending an awesome message to her young followers: be charitable!

The young singer will be presented with the Big Help Award this weekend for her extensive philanthropic work and support of charities and nonprofits at the 25th Annual Nickelodeon’s Kid’s Choice Awards.
