While many of country music's hottest stars are reaching out to help in the tragedy of the Oklahoma tornadoes, such as hometown boys Blake Shelton and Toby Keith's benefit concerts, Oklahoma's own Carrie Underwood has announced she's helping out with a little cash.... $1 MILLION worth!
Carrie's generosity is much needed as officials estimate more than $2 billion US of damage, including 13,000 homes were destroyed or otherwise affected.
“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 tornados," says Carrie.
The Red Cross has responded to Carrie's generosity with a statement: “The impact of the tornados in Oklahoma and the Midwest was devastating and the road to recovery will be long for many families. Through the generosity of Carrie, the American Red Cross can quickly respond with shelter, food and comfort now and with lasting help as they move toward recovery.”
Way to go Carrie - Good Girl indeed!!
