Earlier this week, a report emerged suggesting Clemson's compliance department ended a fundraiser star quarterback Trevor Lawrence and his girlfriend started.

The two started a GoFundMe this week to raise money for those affected by coronavirus. In the short time the page was up, it raised over $2,500, before they were forced to take it down.

However, later in the week, Grace Raynor of The Athletic reported that the NCAA declared the charitable effort to be within the rules. After the story went viral during the week, the NCAA allowed Lawrence and Mowry to press on.

"Shout out to the NCAA. Thank y'all so much for granting a waiver," Lawrence said with Mowry by his side. Just a few days later, the pair announced they're re-upping their fundraiser.

"Hey guys, we are excited to announce our new plan for raising money to help support and encourage others during this difficult time," Mowry said on Instagram.

Lawrence is one of the biggest stars in college football. However, what he's doing for families off the field will have an even bigger impact.

After raising over $2,500 the first time around, Lawrence and Mowry should have no trouble surpassing that amount.

Amazing work by these two.
