It is no surprise that Carrie Underwood would be donating her time and energy to helping out the victims of the Oklahoma tornado, considering her home state IS Oklahoma! (Although I am sure she would have helped out in efforts anyways.)
It is being reported that Underwood has donated a massive ONE MILLION dollars to the relief efforts, including donating the proceeds from her Blown Away tour to the American Red Cross.
Carrie released the following statement: “I have watched the devastation in my home state of Oklahoma over the past several days with great sadness. With the help of my fans who attended my concerts over the past year, we can offer the Red Cross a little extra help in comforting those affected by the recent tornadoes.”
Carrie also thanked her fans for coming out to her shows. She took to her Twitter to show her appreciation, “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!”
Oh how we love you Carrie!
