FIND OUT MORE RIGHT HERE
Jimmy Fallon has proved in the past he is not afraid to speak out on matters pertaining to human rights, speaking out against Trump’s airline ban. Fallon announces the donation in spectacular fashion as a Houston choir sings “Lean on Me”.
He told viewers, “Last week, we saw the devastating effects of Hurricane Harvey on the state of Texas. But in the face of this tragedy, we saw good,” Fallon told his audience on Tuesday. “We saw communities banding together. Neighbors helping neighbors. Strangers helping strangers. So many heroes, people like Mattress Mack, who opened up his stores and showrooms for those who needed shelter. The group of people who formed a human chain to save a man from a flooded SUV. And J.J. Watt from the Houston Texans, who has raised over $18 million dollars to provide food, water, and supplies to the victims.” “And I’m proud to say that our show, ‘The Tonight Show,’ is donating one million dollars to J.J.’s fund,” Fallon said. “Thank you, J.J.”
