JJ Watt keeps raising Houston Harvey relief goal: now $6M

After Houston Texans star JJ Watt set up an online fundraiser to help Houston in the devastating aftermath of Hurricane Harvey, the donations kept pouring in.

He has now raised the goal on Wednesday to $6 million. It is the seventh time he has up the final amount.

Watt donated $100,000 himself when the YouCaring fundraiser first went online.

The original goal of $500,000 was reached in just four hours, and it has continued to grow since then.

"We're going to do everything we can to make sure this money goes directly to the people, directly to the victims," Watt said.

He also asked people to keep spreading the word and continue raising money.

"Thank you to everyone who spread the word. Unbelievable. Houston, stay strong. We're thinking about you. We're with you. We're going to help you," Watt said.
