Carrie Underwood, known for solid support of animal causes, has a big place in her heart for children as well. On Wednesday (Feb.23), Carrie presented Mark Shriver, senior vice president of U.S. programs for Save the Children, a check from the proceeds collected from ticket sales from the 2010 fall leg of her Play On Tour.

For every ticket sold during the September-to-December run of the tour, 36 cents was donated to Save the Children’s U.S. programs, a donation totaling $140,125.68.

Carrie’s charitable initiative was inspired by the 36 cents lyric included in her song "Change" from her album Play On. "Change" addresses how even a few spare coins can help to make a difference and bring "change" to the world.
