ESPN also reported the $800,000 raised by Brady is the most so far for somebody doing the “All In Challenge,” which involves celebrities raffling off experiences with them. The money will go to several organizations providing meals during the crisis.

Good for Tom Brady. I love seeing stuff like this. He’s getting involved in a great movement, raising awareness and helping win the war against coronavirus.

It’s always great to see celebrities and people with large platforms step up to help. That’s exactly what Brady has done here.

We need more guys like him making a difference.

He also wasn’t the only legendary quarterback to get in on the action. ESPN also reported that Peyton Manning raised $525,000 by raffling off 18 holes of golf and dinner.

Once again, it was the football world that stepped up to save the day.

Major props to Brady, Manning and everybody else involved in these efforts. We need all the help we can get, and I have no doubt the money will help a lot of people.
