Transcript for JJ Watt speaks out about his fundraising efforts for those affected by Harvey
And we are back here on "Gma." Our day of giving. I think we have J.J. Watt on the phone. J.J., you must be so inspired by the incredible outpouring of support for what you started. It's been absolutely unbelievable. You know, I think that these difficult times definitely bring out the best in people and we are seeing that shown through to the maximum here. People from all over the world, people from all over the country are donating their time, donating their money and it's really going to go a long way to help these people in Houston. J.J., it's incredible because earlier in the week you were blown away that you had raised $1.2 million. Now you're near 10 million? Yeah, we started out on Sunday hoping to raise $200,000. And now we're at 9.2 million reaching the 10 million here soon. It's truly incredible to see what happens. I can't thank everybody enough who donated. The money keeps on coming in and how do you hope it's going to be used? Well, to get out of the gate this weekend we'll go out and give supplies. Right now we're filling up semi trucks with water and generators and cleaning supplies and baby food, baby clothes, take out directly to the people. I'll take it out directly to the people who need it the most and that's really the first stage. We want to get it going as quickly as we can to make sure we help the people at their most needed time. And, J.J., do you have any idea what $10 million is going to buy you in total? That's a tig amount of money but obviously there's a significant amount of need. Yeah, obviously the plan has changed a bit from when we were hoping to raise $200,000 but now that we have this significant amount of money the plan is changing with it. Right now the biggest thing is this first day is getting out and helping these people get back in their home, help clean their homes up and things like that then we'll transition to bigger phases and that's what we're working on right now to make sure we spend the money the right way and want everybody to know it's going to go directly to the people. We know you'll do it and follow through. Congratulations. Thank you, J.J. Thank you. Thank you, guys and thank you everybody who donated. Let's keep it going and see how big we can get it. Houston, we love you.
