This NFL player turned a negative situation into a positive one this Christmas that is sure to brighten the lives of many homeless kids.
After a tough rivalry loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars, Houston Texans defensive end Jadeveon Clowney didn’t really have the nicest of things to say about Jaguars quarterback Blake Bortles.
“He’s trash,” Clowney told reporters after the game.
Jaguars fans responded to his words by sending trash cans via Amazon to the Texans’ NRG stadium and addressing them to Clowney.
Clowney took to Twitter to respond to the influx of trash cans to his home stadium, but he had a surprise twist for his rival fanbase.
Clowney decided to turn the negativity to a positive and filled all the trash cans, and even a van, with toys. These toys would be taken to the Mission of Yahweh, a shelter and transitional home in Houston for homeless women and children.
Jadeveon Clowney was the first overall selection in the 2014 NFL Draft from the University of South Carolina and signed a four-year, $22.27 million contract, including a fifth-year bonus of $13.8 million.
