Deshaun Watson offers to pay rent of elderly woman struggling due to COVID-19 pandemic.
The world is full of terrible stories right now. People are dying, sports and entertainment are without fans, there are fires raging in California and massive storms in the Gulf. That’s why it’s more important than ever to help those in need when we can. That’s exactly what Houston Texans’ Deshaun Watson wants to do for a woman he saw on the news.
On Wednesday Watson shared a video showing an elderly woman and many others being evicted from their homes. Many of those people are struggling due to COVID-19 and Watson wants to help.
“This is crazy,” Watson wrote on Twitter. “Someone please help me find Israel Rodriguez and the elderly women in this video. Would love to help them get back on their feet.”
Many came to his aid in the comments, some linking GoFundMe accounts for many others who have been affected by the pandemic.
Deshaun Watson is set for a contract extension
Watson is rumored to be getting a new contract soon, which will hopefully help in any aid he might be providing to those in need. His extension is thought to be somewhere near $35 million per season, but that’s just an assumption, we don’t know the exact numbers just yet.
