Hopkins walked around the streets on a 117-degree day in Arizona. He passed out bottles of cold water in an effort to show people kindness on an incredibly hot afternoon. It’s an awesome gesture of kindness from the Cardinals wide receiver — one that many appreciated.
The receiver posted some video snippets on TikTok and Twitter. In the video, Hopkins says, “We decided to spend the day giving cold water to the people struggling to find housing.”
Hopkins says he wanted to show people some kindness.
“I’ve been through hard times myself and I still remember how much things like this helped,” Hopkins said. “So look out for each other and help however you can.”
This is an awesome gesture from Hopkins. We love seeing stuff like this from NFL stars.
J.J. Watt joins DeAndre Hopkins in Helping Others
DeAndre Hopkins’ Arizona Cardinals teammate J.J. Watt also lent a helping hand this week. The NFL star defensive end is helping a woman and her family pay for her grandfather’s funeral.
“I have a pair of @JJWatt womens edition of Reebok shoes size 9 $60. I’ve worn them twice,” Jennifer Simpson wrote on Twitter. “They are great shoes, im only selling because we are raising money for my grandpas funeral. I also have a Watt womens XL Texans Jersey $30. Anyone interested?”
Shortly after Simpson sent out that tweet, Watt responded. He wants to help pay for the funeral.
Another incredible act of kindness from an NFL superstar.
