Blake Shelton donates $600,000 to help fight childhood cancer

Now here’s a classy good guy move by Blake Shelton.

On Saturday, September 10, the singer took Oklahoma City by storm for the second of his two nights of shows at the Chesapeake Energy Arena. At one point, Blake stopped the show to bring several people up on stage with him. He explained that last year his cousin’s daughter Aspen was fighting cancer. She was treated at the OU Medical Center’s Jimmy Everest Center for Cancer and Blood Disorders in Children, where Blake explained that no child is ever turned away.

“They don’t turn any kids away. You come in there, you got a problem, they don’t turn anybody away, so I thought ‘That’s a place that needs some money,’” he said.

That’s when he announced that the proceeds from both of his concerts, $600,000 worth, were being donated to the children’s cancer center. He then signed the oversized check to massive applause.

“Let’s all do the right thing,” he said. “This is our money, Oklahoma.”

So Amazing! Check out the special moment below.

    Great article. We need more stories like this in the world. Always seemed like Blake had a big heart. I know Gwen has given 1 million each to few different charities. Guess they both have big hearts. Beautiful couple.
