It is great to see. They're good people on and off the field. 

I do hope that this is the beginning of more support. $100,000 is a really nice donation but it isn't a lot for a guy that has made over $100M in his career. Then again, some of the owners are only stepping up with donations of $1M despite being worth billions, so I dunno. 

All in all, a great thing from the Stafford's.

Drew Brees is donating $5M to Louisiana.

That is a response.

I have a hard time condemning anyone for giving or not giving and the amount they choose to give.  It's always easy to spend others money.  Good on Brees.  Good on Stafford, hopefully we all are giving in some way.

It’s early. Donations usually increase as specific needs are identified. The Stafford's also have some fairly large multiple year charitable commitments.

I appreciate they’re helping small business, front line medical workers, and low wage earners.

I wouldn't condemn anyone either but at the same time, these donations often amount to crumbs off their table. I'm not gonna call him a Saint either.

Meanwhile, you have entire NBA teams getting tested and people dying waiting for a test or the results. It shouldn't be like this.

Also, government officials showing no signs. Just to get tested to report an update on their health to the media.

Maybe it’s crumbs, but I don’t know what he spends his money on. Maybe 100k to this is crumbs to his salary, but unless one knows his bills and donations, I don’t think it’s fair. People are dying to gun violence, maybe he needs to donate to that. People are dying of cancer. He better be donating to that.  Im sure we can spend his money real quick. Like I said, I am not going to judge the man. Good on him for donating anything to charity. And I hope those who are judging him or thinking his donation is nothing have donated at least a dollar. If not, it’s kind of hypocritical in my opinion. But to each their own.

Another thing to keep in mind. It’s been written numerous times how private Stafford is. I expect he does many things no one hears about because he wants it that way.

Very good point. 

Overall, it's a good story. They're good people on and off the field.
