Charles Woodson donates $100,000 to Red Cross for disaster relief

Packers cornerback Charles Woodson was moved by the images of the destruction caused by Hurricane Sandy, so he decided to do something about it: He's donating $100,000 to the American Red Cross for disaster relief.

Appearing at a campaign event to support President Obama's re-election, Woodson said that he has decided to make the donation because he believes those who have been given a lot also need to give a lot.

"We're in this together. Nobody goes it alone," Woodson said, via the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.

Woodson has long been one of the NFL's most generous players. His past gifts have included a $2 million donation to support research at the University of Michigan C.S. Mott Children's Hospital and Women's Hospital. Woodson said when he made that gift that he was inspired by his mother, who worked when he was growing up as a forklift operator and didn't have a lot of money, but was always looking to help others with what she did have.

"I mean, anything," Woodson said. "Money, food, clothes. Anything, you know? She picked people up, took them to church, all that stuff."

For a lot more reasons than being a professional football player, Woodson is making his mom proud.

Have the Giants, Jets, or Bills donated any cash?

Between those 3 $10 million should be donated ASAP.


Alex Smith would've prevented the hurricane...
