    CARRIE UNDERWOOD GRANTS WISHES FOR HER HOMETOWN SCHOOLS WITH DONATION THROUGH HER C.A.T.S. FOUNDATION

    01/04/12 Nashville (January 4, 2012) -- Carrie Underwood made wishes come true this holiday season for the schools in her hometown of Checotah, Oklahoma with donations amounting to $350,000 through her C.A.T.S. Foundation - Checotah Animal, Town, and School Foundation. Each of the four schools - Marshall Elementary, Checotah Intermediate School, Checotah Middle School, and Checotah High School - learned just in time for Christmas that they would receive the necessary funds from C.A.T.S. to fulfill various school needs. The donations will go towards items such as new computer labs for each school, plus playground equipment, physical fitness equipment, as well as new band uniforms, furniture, storage, instruments for their music programs, among other items.
    “Late last year each of the schools created a list of their needs and I am so thrilled that the C.A.T.S. Foundation was able to fund it all,” said Underwood. “It gives me great joy knowing we are helping my hometown schools to offer an even better education to the students. They deserve it.”
    “We are so proud of Carrie and her accomplishments and we appreciate everything she has done for our students. Every student in our school will benefit from the C.A.T.S. Foundation’s generous donation,” shared Toni Brown, Assistant Superintendent of Checotah Public Schools.
    In addition, this past October, Underwood’s C.A.T.S. Foundation partnered with national non-profit organization KaBOOM!, and with the help of over 200 local volunteers built a playground in one day at Marshall Elementary School designed by the school's students.

    Carrie was busy with album preparations, plus family life, yet she still made time to keep up with her foundation. Awesome lady.

    They seem to be doing a really good job with that foundation. Many times celebrities start foundations with the best of intentions and they end up being poorly managed and don't accomplish much. It is really nice to see the CATS foundation accomplishing some really great things. The students in Checotah are lucky to have Carrie as their benefactor.

    And in addition to the stuff she's done for the schools, she built a new animal rescue center/shelter.

    And I'm sure if it were up to Carrie, no one would even know. I like that Carrie did this without a press release the day it happened. It seems to me that both Mike and Carrie would really prefer to help anonymously and I'm sure they do alot of charity work that we don't know anything about -- probably the only reason we know about this is because of Carrie's Foundation which is a different category and people should have knowledge of it. So many celebrities tell the press every time they help anyone and it makes you wonder why they have to have the publicity and can't just help someone to help someone without any fanfare.

    Its great that Carrie gives back to her hometown. I am sure all the schools greatly appreciate this donation. By the way, CMT has just posted this article on their site.

    So wonderful to see how much she was able to do this year - how awesome that is - its got to be so gratifying to be able to give back to the town that helped make her who she is today!! So proud of her.
    Yes, I'm looking forward to an update on Stella also - just the saddest thing. Anxious to hear how her tongue is doing and will that be a permanent problem or only temporary. Just breaks your heart what some heartless people are capable of doing!
