Toby Keith Says His OK Kids Korral Is ‘Like a Calling From God’
Toby Keith's Toby Keith Foundation has officially launched the OK Kids Korral, a facility that allows children receiving cancer treatments to spend time on site, instead of wasting precious hours of their lives commuting back and forth for their medical support. The grand opening and ribbon-cutting ceremony was held in Okla. last week (Nov. 21) and Keith himself said that launching the facility felt divinely inspired.
"It was a calling by God for me," the country superstar said. "I've got my foundation, I've raised money, now what am I going to do with it. You need a calling, you know? This place was built with that kind of love."
Keith also said that he didn't hang around to chart the progress on the building as it grew. He wanted to walk in and see it when it was completed, so he could experience the same thing that someone using the facility would.
"It's kid-friendly," he continued, likening the cost-free venue to "Ritz Carlton meets Disney World." Essentially, it's a comfortable place for children and their parents during difficult times.
Further details about the state-of-the-art facility, which offers a true Oklahoma experience, are here.
