McCaffrey wrote the following explaining his goals for the program:

I have created a program called “22 and You” to raise much needed funds for our healthcare heroes. My partners at Lowe’s Home Improvement and Bose have stepped up and donated to the program. We will be directing the monies raised to North Carolina Healthcare Foundation and South Carolina Hospital Association Foundation.

I am personally matching the commitment of these great companies and encourage people to donate whatever you can: $22, $220, or $2,200.

I know I’ve said it before, but I’m going to say it again: the sports community has stepped up in a way during this crisis that is downright incredible.

When the world and America needed help, people involved with sports didn’t hesitate to get involved, especially people tied to football.

Football players, coaches and owners didn’t just get involved, but they’ve been leading the fight against coronavirus from their very public platforms.

You can now add McCaffrey to the long list of football people helping to win this brutal war.

We need all the help we can get in this fight against coronavirus and I’m proud of everybody from the sports world that has joined the effort to win.

Next time somebody tells you sports aren’t important, just remind them of who showed up and showed out during this crisis.
