Watt said the money will go directly to victims in Houston and the surrounding area.

Now, Watt can't wait to begin orchestrating his ambitious goals of providing relief for victims of a cruel storm that caused massive flooding, fatalities, property damage homelessness.

"I talked to some of the companies that helped out over there [in New Orleans] just to kind of get a glimpse of what went wrong, what went right, and how do you think we can do it best this time", Watt told AC360.




The teams were informed of the cancellation at respective team meetings Wednesday morning.

The destruction of hurricane Harvey is reaching the NFL. Their work? The loading of 300,000 articles of clothing produced by Dallas Cowboys Merchandise worth approximately $500,000. The team may stay around to play a three-game "home" series against the New York Mets in Tropicana Field starting on Friday, Sept.1. By Wednesday, the Texans were granted their understandable wish to get home to their families and to their city impacted by Hurricane Harvey, and the game was cancelled. "We're going to set up shop in a few different areas around Houston". "It's very hard", Texans star defensive end JJ Watt said in an emotional video last Sunday, "Not only because we have family and friends back there - some guys have young kids, some guys have wives and families - but that's our city". He's been staggered by the generosity and courage of so many, including neighbors using their boats to perform water rescues. "I'm here to make sure that we take care of you down the road".

"It's been extremely hard to watch, but it's also been unbelievably motivational to see firefighters, policemen, every-day citizens out on boats helping each other out, lifting each other up", Watt said. "We've all been there (yeah, even on scholarship I was on the Ramen diet a time or two)".

"The most hard times bring out the best in humanity", Watt said in tweet. Coach Bill O'Brien said the Texans were hopeful of a return home before Monday. "He helped us fix the site and it got rolling". "That's the thing about all this that hits so close to home is that this isn't something we're just witnessing on TV and helping from afar".
