Brett Eldredge has a heart of gold judging by his passion to use his platform to give back. “The Long Way” singer and his family joined forces to create the Brett Eldredge Family Foundation, an organization that strives to help children battle pediatric cancer and fund research for a cure.

To kick off the foundation, Eldredge was joined by his family, dad Chris, mom Robin and brother Brice to present a $60,000 donation check to the Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt.

“The passion and love the folks at Vanderbilt Children’s hospital have for their kiddos is UNREAL! So proud to give them this check from The Brett Eldredge Family Foundation…keep going, we’re here for you,” wrote the singer in a post to Instagram.

The donation was raised during An Evening With Brett Eldredge, the singer’s holiday party. The event was held in Nashville this past Christmas where the Illinois native was on hand to perform hits from his holiday album Glow.
