After Buffalo Bills defensive back Damar Hamlin suffered a cardiac arrest in the match against the Cincinnati Bengals this Mondaythe fans decided to support the player through his Foundation, which has received donations of more than $3.6 million dollars.
Social networks were part of the feat and after the work that Hamlin has done outside the playing fields to help underprivileged children was made known, there were thousands who came to donate en masse.
Since his arrival in the NFL, the player has kept promoting his social action through the foundation he called “The Chasing M’s” which aims to help underprivileged children with the funds raised or through the donation of toys.
“As I embark on my journey to the NFL, I will never forget where I come from; I am committed to using my platform to positively impact the community that raised me“Was the message with which Hamlin presented his project.
But Hamlin’s extra-sports work is not something new, it comes from his college years. During his final season and before entering the NFL draft, organized a children’s toy drive in his hometown of McKees Rocks, Pennsylvania.
Although Damar Hamlin debuted in 2021 after being selected in the sixth round, it was recently that he became known for the unfortunate incident he starred in this Monday, suffering cardiac arrest in the Bengals-Bills duel that was suspended due to the incident.
When he fell suddenly and hit his head on the field of play, medical attendants at Paul Brown Stadium, home of the Bengals, immediately rushed onto the field and gave Hamlin CPR; Once he was stabilized, he was transferred by ambulance to the hospital.
