The Cleveland Rape Crisis Center reports an increase in donations after the Dashon Watson trade.
Fans of the Browns, who are angry that his team traded for Dassault Watson amid allegations of sexual harassment by a massage therapist, are backing that anger for a good cause.
The Cleveland Rape Crisis Center says the days since the Browns traded for Watson have received a large number of donations, with many donors in particular saying they are angry that Watson is coming to town and trying to make a positive impact.
“We’ve been a lifelong Browns fan, my family has been a Browns fan, but I’ve read too, and I’m totally upset by this decision,” Donisha Green, director of the Cleveland Rape Crisis Center of Community Engagement, told Crane. “I’m donating the price of a season pass or $ 22 for 22 women who have had their voices silenced,” she said. Browns fans feel torn. They think that if I could hang out with you and get down in the lost seasons for many years, this is the moment I want to play a role. It’s a big deal. “
The National Network for Rape, Abuse and Mischief also reported an increase in online donations after the Watson Trade News break.
Green said donations to the Cleveland Rape Crisis Center came not only locally but from across the country, and said the donations are particularly strong from Buffalo, where Bills fans often flock to the NFL world for good cause. Many NFL fans fear that Watson has got everything he wants in the new team and in the new contract since last year and some of his fans want to resist him by doing something good.
