Josh Norman is doing his part to give back.
The Buffalo Bills' cornerback announced Wednesday that he is donating $50,000 to help children and their families who are in need during the Covid-19 pandemic. He's also inviting those who can to assist him in making donations, and challenging some of his friends to do the same.
"We’re all in this together, so we’re going to hunker down and get through this rough patch," Norman said in making his announcement on his Instagram page.

Norman, who operates a non-profit organization, Starz24, said his donation will go toward meals and other programs. It's being matched by Walmart, and also supported by the Publix in his hometown of Greenwood, S.C.
Norman is partnering with the Boys & Girls Club of America to raise money. Among those he challenged to help were former Panthers quarterback Cam Newton, as well as Tom Brady and Aaron Rodgers. Norman also asked those who are in a position to help to contribute, even if it's just $5 or $10. Those interested in doing so can visit bgca.org/JoshNorman.
