Scam Alert : Fake Damar Hamlin Donation Requests!
After Damar Hamlin suddenly collapsed from cardiac arrest during the primetime NFL game between the Buffalo Bills and the Cincinnati Bengals, his GoFundMe page has exploded with donations – at publication time, it raised over $7.7 million!
However, scammers are apparently also trying to milk public concern for Damar Hamlin, and his family relayed a warning through his friend and marketing rep, Jordon Rooney, about people requesting cash app and GoFundMe donations in his name.

Damar Hamlin Donation Shifted From GoFundMe To Website
To avoid further confusion, the Chasing M’s Foundation created a new website to handle the donations directly.
When Rooney announced the new website, he shared that Chasing M’s Foundation is a 501 (c) (3) non-profit organisation that is dedicated to “supporting the aspirations of youth and community members through sports, education, and enrichment opportunities“.
The executive director, Mario Hamlin, ask that people who wish to donate to the foundation, please do so through the new website. He also asked that people consider donating to the University of Cincinnati Medical Center trauma center, or buy your trauma center team and first responders lunch.
The Hamlin family appears to be making these moves to curb the donation scams that have mushroomed over public support for Damar Hamlin.
So please do NOT donate to any other Damar Hamlin initiatives, cash app requests, or GoFundMe pages. The only legitimate avenues for donations towards Damar Hamlin are:
- The Chasing M’s Foundation website
- University of Cincinnati Trauma Center
Alternatively, you can show your appreciation for first responders and trauma teams in your area, by buying them lunch.

The Real Damar Hamlin Donation GoFundMe Page!
When he was still in college at the University of Pittsburgh, Damar Hamlin started a toy drive on GoFundMe called The Chasing M’s Foundation Community Toy Drive.
Its first program with a 2020 Community Toy Drive, which set a goal of just $2,500 to buy toys for “children who have been hardest hit by the pandemic”.
Damar Hamlin Donation Not Used To Support His Mother’s Daycare
Jordon Rooney also clarified that the official Damar Hamlin GoFundMe donation page is not being used to fund his mother’s daycare centre.
He explained that it was set up as a toy drive during his college days, and the toy giveaway was held at his mother’s daycare centre. Hence, the address listed in the GoFundMe is still his mother’s daycare centre.
Donations sent to his official GoFundMe would be used to support his foundation, which now does more than just toy drives, but also back to school drives, kids camps and more.
This came after sports business analyst Darren Rovell posted that the Damar Hamlin’s official GoFundMe would fund his mother’s daycare centre.
