Oklahoman superstar Carrie Underwood isn’t forgetting where she came from. She just donated $1 million to the Red Cross for disaster relief efforts in her home state after a deadly tornado hit Moore, Oklahoma. The donation came from her tour proceeds on her “Blown Away World Tour“ starting back in 2012.
Carrie immediately tried to think of a way to help the victims of the tornado. She said:
“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.”
Carrie’s home state of Oklahoma has recently experienced devastating tornados. This contribution to disaster relief will help people affected by disasters like tornados, floods and other crises around the country, including Oklahoma.
