BALTIMORE (WJZ) — Houston Texans defensive end J.J. Watt is kicking off a fundraiser for the victims of the monumental flooding in Houston.

In an emotional post on social media, Watt said it was “very difficult” to see what the city was going through.

“It’s very tough to watch our city get hit by such a bad storm and not be there to help,” says Watt.

The campaign already met its $200,000 goal in less than two hours, with $100,000 of his own money going to the cause. The goal has now been raised to $500,000.
