in Health/People/Sports 109 views

NFL fans and players are sending thoughts and prayers to the family of Buffalo Bills player Damar Hamlin, who collapsed on the field during the Monday Night Football game yesterday.

Reports say the player is currently in critical condition after his heart suffered cardiac arrest during game play. Eventually, he was taken away in an ambulance that had driven onto the field.

The shocking news generated an avalanche of compassion that has already raised nearly $5 million for Damar’s charity in less than a day.

The 24-year-old, who now plays safety in Western New York, created the charity to provide toy drives and back-to-school supplies for children in his hometown of Pittsburgh.

‘Tom Brady’ just donated $10,000 in the past hour—being one one of 160,000 people who opened their hearts by contributing.

The Chasing M’s Foundation first posted the humble fundraiser on GoFundMe in December of 2020, with Damar writing:

“As I embark on my journey to the NFL, I will never forget where I come from and I am committed to using my platform to positively impact the community that raised me.”
