A week ago tomorrow, Carrie Underwood wrapped up her Blown Away Tour, and as part of the tour’s conclusion, a $1,000,000 donation was made to benefit the American Red Cross disaster relief fund. Carrie is grateful and says: “Well, we started the whole Red Cross thing at the beginning of the Blown Away Tour. It was almost like we knew that’s kind of where we should focus our energies before the tour even started. There’s been a lot that’s happened during the Blown Away Tour that us supporting the Red Cross and helpin’ them out and them being a part of the Blown Away Tour, there’s so much that’s happened that it makes it such a good thing that we are a part of the Red Cross. You know, you think about [Hurricane] Sandy and Boston and West Texas and now Oklahoma in Moore with the tornadoes. I mean, it’s so amazing that, you know, after all this stuff has happened and the Red Cross has been there helping out the whole way that we have been able, as soon as the tour wraps to just turn over a large sum of money that, you know, we all helped. This tour helped, and everybody that came to a show helped to donate, so I really hope everybody feels proud, being able to do that. I know there’s a lot more to go — there’s a lot left to do, especially in my home state, Oklahoma, and it’s just been devastating to see all of that. But just knowing that you were part of something that is helping them at their greatest time of need is really cool, and I look forward to seeing how we can help in other ways.”
