NFL Quarterback Pledges Salary To Cafeteria Employees

People like Bill Gates have no problem sliding part of their paychecks into the hands of lucky staff members. The Microsoft CEO, among others, has made a generous difference in the lives of others. For rookie NFL quarterback Deshaun Watson, his first paycheck was a milestone. However, the selfless athlete decided to donate the $27,353 to three cafeteria ladies working at the NRG stadium.

“For what you all do for us every day and never complain, I really appreciate you all, so I wanted to give my first game check to y’all to help y’all out in some type of way,”

The three lucky ladies were working to support family members who had been affected by Hurricane Harvey. The ribbon-wrapped envelopes were, undoubtedly, their very own glimmer of hope.

“Hopefully, that’s good and that can get you back on your feet. And anything else y’all need, I’m always here to help.”

The heartfelt video of the emotional moment has since gone viral, and I can tell you now that tissues are essential!
