    Great. Awesome to find out how much of our money from the tickets we bought to see Carrie in concert will go to Save the Children. Glad Carrie was willing to donate 36 cents of her ticket sales to charity.

    Not only did Carrie present "Save the Children" foundation a check for more than 140 thousand $$$'s, she is promoting the charity by her example. People like me want to give to legitimate charities, and because Carrie believes in this organization; therefore I will. As a result, Carrie's contribution will multiply.

    » Playing For Change: 19/Arista's Carrie Underwood presented an oversized $140,125.68 check to Save The Children SVP/US Programs Mark Shriver yesterday (2/23). The total reflects $.36 of every ticket sold during the Play On Tour from September to December 2010. The initiative was inspired by the lyrics from Underwood's song "Change," which mentions how giving a small amount positively impacts the world.

    I heard Carter's phone call today to a local station. He mentioned Carrie's donation and seemed very impressed with her. Said more people should be like her. I wish he had mentioned the song Change and how the donation came about.
