The Damar Hamlin life-threatening injury has brought a lot of people around the country together to show the good that humanity can do.
In 2020, Hamlin started a toy drive through his Chasing M’s Foundation that had a goal of $2,500 and it’s still active. Since the injury, the Foundation has raised nearly $5 MILLION dollars.
But that’s not the only way fans are showing support for the Bills safety. His jersey is currently the fourth-most popular NFL jersey on Fanatics, behind his teammate Josh Allen.
With his jersey flying off the shelves, Fanatics executive chairman Michael Rubin announced on Tuesday afternoon that all proceeds from his jersey sales will be donated to Hamlin’s foundation.
Hamlin spent the night in intensive care and remains in critical condition, the Bills said earlier Tuesday.
“We are grateful and thankful for the outpouring of support we have received thus far,” the Bills statement read.
Hamlin’s family released a statement on Tuesday expressing their “sincere gratitude” for the outpouring of support they received amid a “challenging time” for the family.
“On behalf of our family, we want to express our sincere gratitude for the love and support shown to Damar during this challenging time. We are deeply moved by the prayers, kind words, and donations from fans around the country,” the statement read.
The NFL announced that the postponed game would not be played this week, and as of now, Week 18 will go on as scheduled.
