As for the millions for Damar's Chasing M's foundation. A Hamlin family friend says it will have a number of uses.

"He has a foundation that supports other things as well. He has toy drives, back-to-school drives, and summer camps, so he does a lot. A lot of people are stuck on, 'oh this is for a toy drive'. That was just the only thing that was available for people to donate to publicly." said Jordon Rooney.
