When it comes to making big plays, J.J. Watt is a beast among men. And that goes for off the football field, too.

Watt’s “Houston Fund Relief” campaign on YouCaring has now eclipsed the $4 million mark, and he’s set the new mark at $5 million.

Watt originally set a goal of $200,000 when he launched the page on Sunday. That was achieved within the first two hours, so he bumped it up to $500,000, then $1 million, and then $1.5 million.

The money keeps flowing in because of Watt’s promise to deliver the funds directly to the victims of Hurricane Harvey.

More than 36,000 donors have graciously contributed, including Tennessee Titans owner Amy Adams Strunk, who gave $1 million to the cause on Tuesday.

“The flooding and devastation to the Houston area has been painful to watch,” Strunk said.  “As a native to the area, I have been so encouraged to see how the locals and the nation as a whole have come together to help one another. The NFL, at the end of the day, is a family that helps one another in times of need. JJ has created a dynamic where boots will be on the ground with immediate aid to those who need it. The Titans want to be a part of his effort to help the Houston community as it rebuilds. I talked with him earlier today and he was very appreciative. We discussed his plans and I know he is determined to help as many people as he can.” (Tennessee Titans)



Watt is right. Humanity is incredible.
