Carrie Underwood performs on Today, announces fans helped raise over $420,000 for charity

Carrie Underwood performed several songs on NBC’s Today Show last Thursday (Sept 14) , including “Before He Cheats,” her latest single “Out Of That Truck,” “She Don’t Know,” “Church Bells” and “Take Me Out.”

During the broadcast, Carrie announced that her fans raised $420,316 during the American Idol season winner’s recent 43 city The Denim & Rhinestones Tour for The Tunnel to Towers Foundation. This generous contribution will go directly towards supporting America’s heroes and their families.

Since early in her career, Carrie has designated a portion of ticket sales from her tours to support worthwhile charities and organizations. She continued that tradition by arranging for a donation of $1 from each ticket sold for her recent The Denim & Rhinestones Tour to be contributed to The Tunnel to Towers Foundation, an organization committed to providing mortgage-free homes to Gold Star and fallen first responder families with young children, and building specially adapted smart homes for catastrophically injured veterans and first responders. The foundation is also commuted to eradicating veteran homelessness and assisting victims of significant U.S. disasters.

“I’m proud of the fans…”

“I’m so proud of the fans that came out to the tour and making this donation possible,” Carrie said in a press statement. “They have always shown up to support great organizations like Tunnel To Towers, making the world a better place while coming out to see us.”

The organization pledges to utilize 100% of this donation towards its cause, forgoing the usual allocation for administrative costs. This means every single dollar of the contribution will aid in the provision of mortgage-free homes to families of fallen first responders and Gold Star families, as well as catastrophically injured veterans and first responders.
