NFL Great J.J. Watt Comes to Houston’s Rescue With This Generous Move

Some NFL players like communist Castro-loving, cop-hating quarterback Colin Kaepernick, use their privileged status to disrespect the American flag and those who died defending freedom. Others, like Houston Texans superstar and all-around great American J.J. Watt, use their greatness to make a difference when people are in need.

The dominant defensive end, certain to end up in the Hall of Fame, started a fundraising page on Sunday to raise money for the relief efforts as Houston has been devastated by the historic and catastrophic Hurricane Harvey.

KHOU reporter Daniel Gotera reported on Facebook that J.J. Watt started a YouCaring page to help the flood victims in Houston:

For his part, J.J. Watt got the ball rolling by kicking in $100,000 of his own money for the relief efforts, making the very first contribution, stating “Houston, we’re in this together.”

Natural tragedies like Hurricane Harvey sometimes bring out the worst (looters) and the best in people but in the case of J.J. Watt, it has brought out the best. It’s going to take a lot more than $100,000 to fix the devastation by Hurricane Harvey but it’s great to see great Americans like J.J. Watt doing their part.

Even if you aren’t able to help those needing help in the Lone Star state at this time, YouCaring states that sharing a link to the fundraising page on social media results in an average contribution of $37. So, we have no excuses! Share this link on Facebook and Twitter to help out your fellow Americans!
