The charitable endeavors of JJ Watt are always a talking point for the Houston Texans defensive end.
Now, as Hurricane Harvey‘s wrath rips apart his team’s home city, Watt is stepping up to start a fundraiser to help the victims of this powerful storm.
It’s extremely difficult to have to watch the events of Hurricane Harvey unfold on TV and not be able to get back to Houston to help with the recovery efforts. I’ve set up a fundraiser so that we can raise as much money as possible to help our communities and the families of our great city rebuild. Any donation that you can spare, no matter how large or small, no matter what city or state you live in, is greatly appreciated. We will come out of this stronger than ever. www.YouCaring.com/JJWatt #TexasForever
Players in the NFL often get a bad wrap for misbehaving, but the truth is there are plenty of guys like Watt around the league who donate their time and money to worthwhile causes all of the time.
He pledged $100,000 to help the rebuilding efforts.
