JJ Watt donates $100K, sets up Harvey relief fund

Houston Texans star JJ Watt has set up an online fundraiser to help victims of Hurricane Harvey, and personally donated $100,000 for those affected by the storm.

“That’s our city. It’s very tough to watch our city get hit by such a bad storm and not be there to help with the recovery,” Watt said in a Twitter post. “I know these recovery efforts are going to be massive.”

According to the YouCaring fundraiser called “Houston Flood Relief Fund,” Watt himself donated $100,000.

“Houston, we’re in this together,” Watt said in a description of his donation on the fundraising page.

CBS Houston affiliate KHOU said $30,000 in additional donations poured in within the first hour. By Monday morning, the total had surpassed $300,000.
