J.J. Watt's online fundraiser to aid flood victims of HurricaneHarvey is now over $27 million and the Houston Texans All-Prodefensive end says Sunday's season opener is "going to be special."
A $5 million donation from the Texas-based H-E-B grocery chain on Wednesday is the largest to the online campaign started by Watt, continuing to surpass his target goals from more than 189,000donors at YouCaring.com.
H-E-B president Scott McClelland presented Watt with the check on behalf of company owner Charles Butt.
"There are no words to describe when someone steps up to the platelike this," Watt said.
Late night talk show host and comedian Jimmy Fallon contributed $1million to Watt's flood relief fund.
"I'm proud to say our show, 'The Tonight Show' is donating $1million to J.J.'s fund," Fallon said on his NBC show Tuesday night."Thank you, J.J."
