Thanks to the efforts of Houston Texans pass rusher J.J. Watt, millions of dollars have been raised to aid the victims impacted by Hurricane Harvey.
Jacksonville Jaguars rookie running back Leonard Fournette just made a very generous contribution, along with posting this heartfelt message.
Donating 50,000 to the people in Houston, y'all are in my prayers, we went through Katrina we know the feeling God bless…..

Every penny counts and Fournette’s donation will be highly appreciated. Fournette attended college at LSU and went to St. Augustine High School in Louisiana. So, he understands how daily lives can be turned upside down having dealt with the wrath of Hurricane Katrina in 2005.
Fournette’s donation will specifically go to a fundraiser Watt set up earlier this week.

As of Wednesday afternoon, Watt had helped raise nearly $6 million. Fournette’s act of altruism helps a great deal here.
