Before J.J. Watt closed his Hurricane Harvey relief fund on YouCaring.com with a total of more than $37 million, he got some big donations from a couple of NFL big names.

New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady donated $100,000 and Pats coach Bill Belichick contributed $50,000, the Houston Chronicle reported.

More than 209,000 people donated money through Watt’s fund, a large number of whom were athletes. Watt closed it down Friday so he could focus on distributing the funds to those who need it.

“There are many places you could have donated your hard-earned money and I’m honored you have chosen to join this effort to support the people who were affected most by Hurricane Harvey,”http://www.usatoday.com/” he wrote on the page. “Please keep this spirit of helping one another alive. The world is a better place when we all take care of each other.”
