In a heartwarming act of charity, Houston Texans quarterback Matt Schaub and his wife Laurie donated $200,000 to the Texas Children’s Hospital on Monday. The donation was made through the family’s Gr8 Hope Foundation. After raising $108,000 for a playroom at the hospital last year, this year’s donation will be used for the hospital’s child life development program.
“It’s something that Laurie and I didn’t want to put together just for a flash in the pan, a one- or two-year thing,” Schaub said. “We wanted to do this as long as we can, as long as we’re here in Houston, wherever we are after that. It’s very important for us to be here, because we’ve developed such a great relationship with the people here. It’s important for us to keep this thing going as long as we can.”
