JJ Watts is already known as a giving guy, dedicating his time to wounded warriors and worthy causes- when Hurricane Harvey hit his home state, Watts upped it once more with a massive goal of raising $200K for relief efforts.
That goal has now exceeded $10M.
On social Watts has continued throughout the week to donate to the worthy cause, giving video updates on how much money has been raised- on Monday he bumped the goal to $1M which was quickly met, then on Tuesday evening he bumped the goal to $5 million.
Ellen Degeneres showed just how generous she was, last night donating $1M to the cause- combined with the $50K Ellen had already donated and Miley Cryrus’ $500K donation, the current donation stands just below $12M donated.
JJ Watts has served as an inspiration, with multiple NFL Teams including the Tennessee Titans, New York Jets, and of course the Houston Texans making donations in excess of $1M to Watt’s Houston relief fund. With any luck, the fund will soon exceed $20M for those whom have suffered on of the worst natural disasters this nation has seen.
