The entire world has united to stand behind Damar Hamlin following his injury against the Cincinnati Bengals.
Everyone has been sending their prayers, with many people also sending donations through Damar Hamlin’s GoFundMe page for The Chasing M’s Foundation Community Toy Drive.
Even other NFL teams, including the Patriots, and celebrities, like Ciara and country singer Luke Bryan, have donated to Hamlin’s charity following the play on Monday night that stopped the game in its tracks.
Hamlin collapsed on the field during the Bills-Bengals game on Monday Night Football. He went into cardiac arrest after a tackle and was transported by ambulance to the University of Cincinnati Medical Center.
