Don’t let Donald Trump and his satanic administration fool you: There is still kindness and good in this world. Houston Texans rookie quarterback Deshaun Watson donated his first-game paycheck to three cafeteria workers who were affected by Hurricane Harvey.

“For what you all do for us every day and never complain, I really appreciate you all, so I wanted to give my first-game check to y’all to help y’all out in some type of way,” Watson told the women in a video shared by the Texans, ESPN reports. “Here you guys go,” Watson said, handing each of them an envelope wrapped with a bow.

Watson, whose base salary is $465,000, split his game check of $27,353 three ways. ESPN notes that Watson has been the one in need of a helping hand before: His family were the recipients of a house built by Habitat for Humanity.


“Hopefully, that’s good and that can get you back on your feet,” Watson told the women. “And anything else y’all need, I’m always here to help.”
