Through her Maddie’s Corner charity, Broken Arrow native Kristin Chenoweth is raising money to help the people and animals of her home state recover from this week’s devastating tornadoes.

The Emmy- and Tony-winning actress/singer founded Maddie’s Corner in honor of her beloved Maltese, Maddie. The charity’s mission is to bring attention and support to animals in need and groups working on their behalf, as well as to highlight the many ways animals help people in need and enrich our lives.

Through CustomInk, Maddie’s Corner is selling specially designed T-shirts for $25 each. The campaign’s goal is to sell 1,000 shirts, raising more than $17,500 which will go to disaster relief in Oklahoma.

Here’s more from the campaign website:

Maddie is a little dog but right now she’s got her paws wrapped around her mama’s home state of Oklahoma in a big hug of love and support following the devastating tornado. So many lives, both human and animal, were torn apart. Maddie was IN Oklahoma, with her grandparents, at the time of the storm. You can imagine how this tragedy hits especially hard.

We are going to do whatever we can to help those affected by the tornado to recover and rebuild. We will be sending food, building supplies, medical supplies and veterinarians, if needed. We want to see everyone reunited with lost pets and help families to heal and care for themselves during this difficult time.
