Some good things have come out of the bad situation that is the Coronavirus Pandemic. Some of those good things is professional athletes donating money and their paychecks to those who could really use the help right now.

Former Detroit Tiger Justin Verlander and his wife, Kate Upton have decided to join those celebrities making donations. This from Verlander's Instagram:

Recently the @mlb announced they will be continuing to send paychecks to players while the season is suspended. @kateupton and I have decided to donate those funds to a different organization each week so that we can support their efforts and highlight the great work they’re doing during the COVID-19 crisis. Everyone around the world is affected by this virus, and we hope to contribute to the families and jobs affected, the healthcare workers and first responders on the front lines and the many others in need of basic necessities, medical supplies and support at home. As soon as the first paycheck is received we will be highlighting the first organization. We know everyone is impacted by this crisis, but for those who are able, we encourage you to stay home to help flatten the curve and look to those around you who need a helping hand. #covid19#flattenthecurve
