METAIRIE, La. — The historic Christmas Day performance from New Orleans Saints running back Alvin Kamara is a gift that keeps on giving.

Kamara’s NFL-record-tying six touchdowns came at the perfect time for fantasy football managers who were using him in their championship-week lineups. And many of those grateful fantasy managers, in turn, paid it forward with donations in Kamara’s honor to a charity he supports.

Son of a Saint, an organization that mentors boys who have lost their fathers because of death or incarceration, said it has received $21,000 so far from nearly 400 donors.

“We are especially grateful to Alvin for selecting Son of a Saint as his charity of choice,” said founder Bivian “Sonny” Lee III, son of the late Saints defensive back Bivian Lee. “As an organization, we turn 10 years old at the strike of midnight, so this makes the generosity even more meaningful as we kick off 2021.
