Fans are seizing the opportunity to get the New England Patriots back on its feet, after the American football team was served a $1 million fine and quarterback Tom Brady hit with a four-game suspension.
Patriots fan, Michael J. Whitman, has launched a crowdfunding campaign on gofundme.com, asking for donations towards the Super Bowl champion's million-dollar fine.
In the last 20 hours, over $3,500 has been donated by more than 240 people. The campaign is also starting to make an impact on social media, with more than 4,300 shares online.
Despite acknowledging that he probably won't raise $1 million, Whitman was defiant about helping out his team.
"We obviously know we won't reach One Million Dollars, however we do believe the fine is bulls**t and want to help anyway we can. So whatever is donated will be donated to the New England Patriots in help with the fine!" Whitman said on the campaign's page.
