According to Mothership, this heartwarming incident took place on March 2, as Oliver was approaching the Singapore National Stadium with his parents and aunt, eagerly anticipating Swift’s first concert in Singapore.

However, the excitement took a compassionate turn when they encountered two distraught girls on the stadium steps, visibly upset due to the scam they had fallen victim to.

Oliver, witnessing the girls’ disappointment firsthand, decided to act. Demonstrating maturity and empathy, he instructed his mother to sell his and his aunt’s tickets to the girls at the original purchase price, choosing to forgo his own experience for the sake of others.

This selfless decision brought immense joy to the girls, who were able to enjoy the concert, thanks to Oliver’s kindness.

Bringing happiness to other

They quickly contacted their parents to arrange the transfer of funds to Oliver’s mother for the tickets, and with hearts full of gratitude, they rushed off to join the concert crowd.

The positive impact of Oliver’s action was evident. His mother captured videos of the girls during the concert, fully engaged and enjoying every moment.

From screaming and shouting during Sabrina Carpenter’s opening act to jumping and singing along with Taylor Swift, their happiness was a direct result of Oliver’s generosity.

A happy ending!

After giving up his tickets, Oliver Lim revealed an unexpected turn of events: Keith Magnus, the chairman of Kallang Alive Sport Management (KASM), personally reached out to him.

Magnus commended Lim for his selfless deed, labeling it as exemplary behavior that every Singaporean should aspire to emulate, and graciously extended an offer for tickets on a different date.

Lim shared that he was surprised and excited about the opportunity to witness Taylor Swift perform live on March 7. He hadn’t anticipated attending the concert following his decision to give away his tickets, making this gesture all the more meaningful.

Keith Magnus, in a statement to Mothership, further lauded Lim’s actions, highlighting them as a beacon of empathy and the human spirit.

“It warmed our hearts to learn that he reached out and selflessly gave up his much coveted concert tickets, to help another person in need, with his reward being only him having done someone a good deed.”
