As the greater Houston area continues to recover from Hurricane Harvey, more and more athletes, influencers and corporations have decided to chip in from afar.
With Houston Texans star J.J. Watt's ever-growing donation fund leading the charge, Wizards star guard John Wall rose to the challenge, donating $25,000 to both Watt's foundation and the one organized by comedian Kevin Hart.
But Wall was not the only D.C. star to rise up. The Mystics will contribute $1 from every ticket sold to their Friday night home game against the Seattle Storm to a $10,000 relief fund set up by team president Sheila Johnson and Monumental Sports & Entertainment partner Tony Nader. Monumental is also setting up a relief fund so that all members of the organization can donate to the Red Cross.
Capitals captain Alex Ovechkin and Ted Leonsis, MSE's chairman and CEO, pledged donations to the Monumental Sports & Entertainment Foundation fund and both Wall and teammate Bradley Beal have issued challenges to their teammates to do the same.

Nationals' ace Max Scherzer came up with a way to help people adopt displaced animals during the last week of storms, and the Baltimore Ravens pledged $1 million to relief efforts as well.
