Lauren Alaina has launched her “My Kinda People” charity and the accompanying video is adorable.

“My Kinda People” is a philanthropic effort to generate support for a variety of people who are most in need. “I have the most amazing and unique job, and I have been privileged to meet so many people all over the world and hear their stories,” she says in a message posted on her website. “Some of those stories are uplifting and some of those stories are painful, but all of the stories have touched me and left a lasting impression. Your stories and my stories; we are all in it together. I wanted to find a way to help where I can, so I formed the charity.”

The first donation goes to Nashville’s Friends Life Community, a nonprofit serves adults with special needs. Lauren headlined the organization’s 9th Annual Songwriters’ Night in Music City back in September, and the proceeds – including her own – went directly to the organization. The total amount has not been made available. Lauren soon followed up with a trip to the organization’s headquarters, parts of which can be seen below.

Catch up with Lauren on the road between now and the end of the year in Louisville, KY and Jacksonville, FL. Her schedule picks back up in January with shows in Arkansas, Pennsylvania and New Hampshire. Stay up to date on all things Lauren Alaina here.
