Thomas Morstead (the injured player mentioned)'s charity, [What you give will grow](https://www.wygwg.org
), has committed to passing on all donations collected from this campaign to The Minnesota Children's Hospital.
Since the account has reached over 100K Morstead will be flying to Minnesota to personally deliver the check.

edit: Just wanted to add for those who are unfamiliar, Thomas Morstead (#6) is the punter for the New Orleans Saints (the team the Vikings won against last Sunday - where he suffered a painful injury to the ribs).
This makes everyone's efforts that much more special. Vikings fans are donating to a rivals team's punter's charity (which they didn't have to) and then he turns around and gives the money right back to a local Minnesota Children's Hospital (which he didn't have to do).
Class acts all around!
He apparently lined up at nose tackle too and said “sup fellas” after sauntering out.
there's no video in that thread so i have no idea what the fuck they're all on about
Anyone have video of the guy lining up for the PAT?
"That player" is punter Thomas Morstead, and he plans on giving all the donations to the Minnesota children's hospital.
He's one of the nicest guys I've ever met. My dad is a personal trainer and every Tuesday and Thursday we used to run workout circuits at a gym in the New Orleans area. It just so happened that Thomas Morstead worked out at the exact same place at the exact same time.
He always joined us during our ab circuits, and the funniest part being we had **no idea** who he was at the time! It was one of my dad's later clients that eventually pointed it out, and we all laughed hysterically.
If you're reading this Mr. Morstead, here's a shout out from Elmwood! Who Dat!

My little neighbor kid is fighting cancer at age 4 and will directly benefit from these dollars at Mn Children’s hospital. Awesome...
Can anyone explain to an EU person what this means / why this is a big deal?
Edit: Appreciate the replies, thanks all!
