After Jaguars’ fans raised money for a wedding gift and donations to charity for Trevor Lawrence, the Clemson quarterback and likely number one pick of the draft expressed his thanks on Twitter.

Lawrence, who is expected to hear his name called on April 29th during the first round of the draft, married Marissa Mowry April 10. Jaguars fans raised thousands of dollars to purchase a wedding gift--initially a luxury toaster. As the donations increased, attention turned to supporting a charity that Lawrence supports.

In his thank you Tweet, Lawrence said that he and his bride would donate $20,000 to charities in Jacksonville.

He also wrote, “We hope to be a part of your community soon.” He closed the tweet with the emoji of two hands praying.

On Sunday, Eric Dillard, the Jaguars’ fan who started the fundraising effort, tweeted out that over $11,000 has been collected from Jaguars’ fans. Added to Lawrence’s donation, the total tops $31,000.
