I am amazed by the outpouring but also amazed by the man JJ Watt. He didn't JUST create a YouCaring page and post some social media. He's an active participant in recovery actions. He's been onsite distributing relief packages with other members of the Houston Texans, filled a warehouse with supplies, and even coordinated trucks and rescue efforts from afar over the phone. The funny thing is that he isn't doing this for the publicity. He is genuinely a good guy and is a shining example of how our heroes should behave. An idolized sports figure who gives back to the community, rather than a player who gets arrested at clubs or beats women. What an ideal to live up to! I hope many more people follow his lead.
Now he didn't do this alone. Other people helped and donated, like:
