J.J. Watt has now raised more than $10 million to go to victims of Hurricane Harvey.
The Houston Texans star and Wisconsin grad started a fund over the weekend with a goal of $200,000. The goal kept climbing and by Thursday morning, Watt had helped raise more than $10 million for people in Houston affected by flooding.

“Celebrities, musicians, athletes, kids with lemonade stands, people hosting fundraisers, businesses donating, I cannot thank everyone enough,” he said in a video on Twitter.
Watt noted that truckloads of supplies would start heading to those in need as soon as possible.
His fund has been growing tremendously throughout the week, and on Wednesday, Watt’s fund received a $1 million donation from Ellen DeGeneres.
