Houston Texan NLF player J.J. Watt’s fundraiser for Hurricane Harvey victims has reached a new milestone, thanks to several major relief donations over the past couple of days. Watt says he is stunned by the outpouring of support.

Watt himself started off by donating $100,000 to the fundraiser on Sunday.

Days later, and just hours after notifying people that his Houston Flood Relief Fund had raised over $7 million Wednesday afternoon, Watt tweeted that the number rose to over $8.5 million. He thanked Ellen DeGeneres for teaming up with Wal-Mart to donate $1 million.

Other major fundraising accelerators included Tennessee Titans owner Amy Adams Strunk pledging $1 million, Miley Cyrus donating $500,000, Drake donating $200,000, and Houston Rockets point guard Chris Paul donating $50,000, according to Bleacher Report.

Now the player has a big announcement.

“We started out on Sunday with a goal of raising $200,000, and we just now surpassed the $10 million mark,” Watt said in a video he tweeted Thursday morning.

Watt says he plans to keep his fundraising link open for anyone else who wants to donate to the fund, and will begin distributing supplies to Harvey victims over the weekend.

“Houston, we’re thinking of you,” he said, thanking everybody who showed his city support.

“My focus is very much on getting the money directly to the people, as I’ve said the whole time,” he added.

    You idiot scalp-hunters are so busy creating fake disputes that it’s clear you don’t give a flying freak about Harvey victims or anyone else – you’re just racking up points for the trolls who keep score. I have asked you, told you and warned you to get my IP address off your list, and I am working with the FCC to investigate how you found me and why you are cyber-stalking me. There are more than enough opportunities to see and listen to uneducated trolls right here in my state. But – keep up the pace – you are doing a better job than ‘the left’ could ever do to demonstrate your lack of compassion and intelligence.
