Amy Adams Strunk has become one of my favorite human beings. Today she donated $1 million to J.J. Watt’s (who didn’t used to be one of my favorite human beings but it is impossible not to commend him for the work he is doing for the flood relief effort) YouCaring drive. This donation is in addition to the $25,000 the Titans Foundation gave to the Red Cross over the weekend according to Titans Online.
Strunk, who lives in Houston, had this to say:
The flooding and devastation to the Houston area has been painful to watch,” Strunk said. “As a native to the area, I have been so encouraged to see how the locals and the nation as a whole have come together to help one another. The NFL, at the end of the day, is a family that helps one another in times of need. JJ has created a dynamic where boots will be on the ground with immediate aid to those who need it. The Titans want to be a part of his effort to help the Houston community as it rebuilds. I talked with him earlier today and he was very appreciative. We discussed his plans and I know he is determined to help as many people as he can.
