JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – At the end of the month, the Jacksonville Jaguars will likely draft former Clemson University quarterback Trevor Lawrence as the first overall pick in this year’s NFL draft. But Lawrence has another big day coming up before draft night.

On April 10, Lawrence is getting married.

Jaguars fans didn’t get an invite to the wedding but they are making sure Lawrence knows they wish they could be there by pooling money to buy him a wedding present.

The campaign is being led by Jaguars fan @E_Dilla, a well-known figure in the Jaguars Twitterverse. On Friday, @E_Dilla tweeted a picture of Lawrence and Marissa Mowry’s wedding registry. After it was jokingly suggested that fans should collect money to buy him a toaster, the campaign took off.

Donations quickly poured into @E_Dilla’s Venmo account. Soon, Jaguars Twitter surpassed the $300 goal. The plan was to accept donations until 8 p.m. on Friday night then hold a poll to decide what gift to purchase.

The Lawrence gift fund surpassed over $3,000 by 6 p.m. That sort of cash could buy any item on the registry list.

Local attorney John Phillips even swooped in and purchased the toaster for the couple sending it from #Duuuval.

By Monday morning, more than $7,000 had been raised for the Lawrences’ Wedding Registry Fund, the Jaguars Twitter base came up with a great idea.

Instead of using the entire sum to buy gifts from the registry, they will purchase a gift for the couple and the rest will be donated to a charity that Lawrence supports.

Currently, the only charity directly attached to Larence and Mowry is their COVID-19 relief fund.
