[UPDATE]: J.J. Watt went past $6 million in fundraising for Hurricane Harvey relief on Wednesday, and the next goal is $10 million

With Hurricane Harvey having a devastating impact on the southeast portion of Texas, many efforts have been made to raise funds and collect supplies for those in need. Houston Texans defensive end J.J. Watt has continued to do his part while setting lofty goals for his fundraising campaign over the course of the last several days.

Now, the Texans pass rusher has announced that the most recent goal of $1.5 million has officially been surpassed.

While thanking those who have donated thus far, Watt set a new fundraising goal of $2 million with the proceeds to be given directly to those who need it. The Texans are still in Dallas, as the roads are too flooded for the team to make a return to Houston.
