Tim McGraw Concert Benefits Children's
November 30, 2010
Country superstar Tim McGraw has made giving back to the community a way of life. Through his Southern Voice tour, McGraw is supporting nonprofits across the United States in 34 cities.
McGraw made a $30,000 donation to Children's on behalf of his charitable organization, Neighbor's Keeper, whose aim is to strengthen communities by contributing to diverse projects that emphasize children's initiatives.
"Faith and I feel it's incumbent upon us to step in where we see a need," said McGraw. "It's the way we were raised. In our homes, money was tight - my mom was working two and three jobs when I was in junior high - but the supply of goodwill was endless."
The goodwill McGraw has shown Children's will benefit hundreds of thousands of patients like Amber. Amber and her mother, Tena, recently met McGraw at SuperPages.com Center during the Dallas stop of his 2010 Southern Voice tour.
