NFL Star Raises $12 Million for Hurricane Harvey

posted by Pat McMahon -

N-F-L star J.J. Watt and his fans are donating millions to Hurricane Harvey relief. Right now, the total stands at 12-million-dollars. The Houston player isn’t stopping -- he just upped the goal to 15-million-dollars! It may seem like a lot, but he started the fundraiser on Sunday with just 200-thousand. Remember, you can help the relief efforts by donating $10 right now to the Red Cross. Text Harvey to 9-0-9-9-9 or go to RedCross.org.


Comedian Amy Schumer left a $500-dollar tip for a meal that only cost $80. The waitress is a college student who works at t he restaurant part-time. She said that Schumer was really nice and that the tip is going to really help since school is about to start. This isn’t the first time Amy left a big tip, she once gave $1-thousand-dollars on a $77 check! 

A group of bakers has been working around the clock trying to help Hurricane Harvey victims. They got trapped inside the bakery during the hurricane so they decided to bake Mexican Sweet Bread. The water has receded and they’re still going strong as they’ve already given away thousands of pastries at the bakery. 


8-year-old Lilly Bice of New Orleans overheard a conversation about the tragedy in Houston, so she decided to do something about it. Lilly went to her room and came back with a bag full of toys to donate – including her favorite doll. Her parents lost everything they owned when Hurricane Katrina hit in 2005, which also inspired her.  After seeing her gather up her toys, her dad made a commitment to drive to Houston to pitch in with the relief efforts and, of course, deliver Lilly’s toys in person.
