The Ravens donate one million dollars to Hurricane Harvey recovery efforts

NFL: Baltimore Ravens at Jacksonville Jaguars Reinhold Matay-USA TODAY Sports

America is currently experiencing one of the worst natural disasters in recent memory in the form of Hurricane Harvey. South Texas is getting hit especially hard with cities such as Galveston and Houston in particular taking a serious beating from the onslaught of rain and wind.

As Houston Texans defensive end JJ Watt said recently in reference to the storm, the most difficult times bring out the best in humanity, and that has been evidenced by the fundraising efforts to help remedy the situation. Watt himself has organized fundraising that has incredibly netted over 10 million dollars so far, and his efforts are just the beginning of several different organizations and individuals showing their support for the city of Houston.

The Baltimore Ravens are one of those organizations such as the Texans, Houston Rockets, and many others who have donated in the millions each to the recovery charities:

It’s great to see the Ravens get involved in such a positive collection of effort to help the city of Houston get back on the road to recovery after Harvey mercifully dies down. Here’s to hoping that we only see more kindness and generosity as people come together to help one another in a time of crisis.
