Josh Norman pledges $100,000 ‘as a start’ to aid Puerto Rico

By Jesse Reed

Washington Redskins cornerback Josh Norman, like many Americans, is heartbroken about the plight of those suffering in Puerto Rico. Still without food, water or power in the wake of Hurricane Maria, the people of that island community are in a bad way.

On Saturday, Norman made it clear he’s going to do what he can, pledging $100,000 “as a start to help you guys out bc you are all citizens of U.S. Just like us.”

Earlier on Saturday, Miami Dolphins linebacker Kiko Alonso, whose father is from Puerto Rico, also did something to help. He pledged $25,000 and started a YouCaring page to aid the suffering people of Puerto Rico and Miami.

We applaud these athletes for doing what they can to provide help for the people who so desperately need it in Puerto Rico. Our thoughts and prayers are with them as they fight for survival.
