The Oakland Raiders organization recently hooked up Ava Urrea—a four-year-old with a heart condition—with a lot of cool gifts. However, Raiders tackle Menelik Watson decided to take things one step further to help out the girl and her family.

In the spirit of the holidays, Watson donated an entire game check to Ava's family. ProFootballTalk.com's Mike Florio wrote that the check was likely in the $18,000 range.

Although athletes like Watson don't do this for the attention, they do deserve praise for trying to make a difference.
