Carrie Underwood Donates $1 Million for Oklahoma Tornado Relief
Carrie Underwood could not help but be deeply affected by the recent tornadoes that ripped through her home state of Oklahoma. That’s why Carrie has pledged a donation of one million dollars to the American Red Cross to help the victims of those devastating storms. The charitable contribution will be derived from the proceeds of her Blown Away Tour.
“I have watched the devastation in my home state of Oklahoma over the past several days with great sadness,” Carrie said in a release. “With the help of my fans who attended my concerts over the past year, we can offer the Red Cross a little extra help comforting those affected by the recent tornadoes.”
Carrie made the announcement as she wrapped up the Blown Away tour, which has traveled the globe over the last year. She tweeted to thank her fans for coming out to the shows and making the donation possible.
And thanks to all who came to a show during this entire tour! I hope you all feel great about the Red Cross contribution that WE made today!— Carrie Underwood (@carrieunderwood) May 24, 2013
