Simpson directed people to either give money to the funeral home directly or to herself in a Twitter post on July 21.

Within two days of trying to sell her JJ Watt jersey and shoes, people had donated $5,200 toward Simpson’s grandfather’s funeral.

Simpson explained that the money would be going toward both the funeral services and the cemetery services.

Within five days of her original post, Simpson reported that they had raised nearly all the money they needed to cover all her grandpa’s funeral and burial costs.

And on July 27th, just a week after JJ Watt helped a woman pay himself, as well as getting the word out to others, Simpson celebrated that they had all they needed.

Simpson wrote, “My grandpas funeral is paid in full!! I couldn’t have done it without the help of JJ Watt and all of you wonderful people.”

Simpson then asked that the donations stop.

After JJ Watt helped a woman pay for her grandpa’s funeral, she called him a “walking angel.”

On August 20, Simpson posted to Twitter that her family were finally able to lay her grandfather to rest.
