BenefitsPRO editor Paul Wilson reflects on the industry's response to hurricanes Harvey and Irma.

$30 million and counting. That’s the amount NFL star J.J. Watt has raised for Hurricane Harvey relief efforts as I write this. By the time you read it, who knows how high that figure may have climbed? After all, when Watt announced the fundraising page with a video on Twitter in late August, his goal was to collect a modest $200,000. Heck, at this point, there have been nearly 200,000 donors.
