Jimmy Fallon donates $1 million to J.J. Watt’s fund

Posted Sep 6, 2017

On Monday night, Jimmy Fallon announced his $1 million donation to J.J. Watt's hurricane relief fund.

J.J. Watt has raised over $20 million for his Hurricane Harvey Relief fund. On Monday night, late night talk show host and comedian Jimmy Fallon was the latest to contribute to Watt’s online fundraiser.

“I’m proud to say our show, The Tonight Show is donating 1 million to J.J.’s fund,” Fallon said. “Thank you, J.J.”

Fallon announced the donation to Watt’s flood relief fund before inviting a Houston gospel choir to sing “Lean On Me.”

Fallon is the latest in a number of celebrities to give to Watt’s relief fund. Donations have poured in from supporters such as Ellen DeGeneres, Titans owner Amy Adam Strunk, Houston Rockets Chris Paul, and Drake among many more. Watt began his relief fund on Aug. 27 with an initial goal of $200,000, pledging that 100 percent of donations would go to flood victims and recovery efforts for Houston and Southeast Texas.
