Tom Brady is doing his part to support charities providing aid amid the coronavirus pandemic -- even if New England Patriots fans may not enjoy what he's offering.
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback joined the "All-In Challenge" on Tuesday, posting videos to Instagram and Twitter stating his goal to help raise $100 million in total for four charities -- Feeding America, Meals On Wheels, World Central Kitchen and No Kid Hungry -- as COVID-19 puts food security at risk for many Americans.
I accept the #ALLINCHALLENGE. Watch the video & go to https://t.co/bRtYgf65MS to get involved. I challenge my wife @giseleofficial, my buddy @drake & YOU @nflcommish to go ALL IN! pic.twitter.com/QDeBNEM0rf— Tom Brady (@TomBrady) April 15, 2020
Brady is auctioning off a special game-day experience with all proceeds going to those charities. Here's what Brady's experience includes:

- Four tickets to the Bucs' 2020 home opener. ("Hopefully you enjoy it; it's beautiful down here," Brady added.)
- The fans' choice of a private dinner or a private postgame workout with Brady in the Tampa area.
- Brady's first game-worn jersey and his game-worn Under Armour cleats.
Patriots fans may not be too keen on watching Brady's first game in a different uniform, but if you're a Brady fan and have some extra cash (the starting bid is $50,000), this is a pretty sweet package for a good cause.
The 42-year-old QB -- who looks like he's gotten some sun since moving to Tampa -- challenged his wife, Gisele Bundchen, rapper Drake and NFL commissioner Roger Goodell to step up to the plate next.
Goodell is an interesting choice considering his history with Brady, but maybe the six-time Super Bowl champion has always wanted to "call out" Goodell after Deflategate.
Brady follows the lead of Boston Celtics star Jayson Tatum, who donated a one-of-a-kind experience to the All-In Challenge on Monday night.
